Man sells life online for £200kA man is to receive £200,000 for his 'entire life', which he put up for sale online following a split from his wife.
Ian Usher, used his internet connection to put up every aspect of his life up for sale, including home, cars, job and even friends.
He promised the winning bidder a trial period as a sales assistant at Jenny Jones Rugs as well as introduction to his friends.
Usher's goods were valued at more than they eventually went for, even though at one point there were bids on the auction site for millions of Australian dollars.
But, after the system was adjusted to eliminate hoax bids, the final offer came in below the top estimate.
He said: "I am relatively pleased but I thought it would go a bit higher, if I'm honest. But I've no regrets. What's done is done and I'm looking forward to sorting this all out."
