It is not clear to me whether the act was intentional to generate more enquiries, the posting of the semi nude photos by the sellers.
They are trying to pass it off as accidental!
This is not the first time an eBay seller manages to accidentally expose their naked body on photos of the items they’re selling, but it is the first time the photo is stolen and goes viral on the internet.
Aimi Jones, 21, uploaded a photo of the yellow mustard dress she was selling on eBay Saturday morning not knowing she appeared in the mirror’s reflection in her bra and no panties, The Sun reported.
“It’s so embarrassing. It is such a dizzy, stupid thing to do and now the whole world’s seen me in the nude,” Jones told The Sun. “I put it on eBay last Saturday morning and realized straight away so ended the sale. But what I didn’t realize was that people could steal it on the site.”
The photo went viral even after Jones removed the post and is now all over the internet.
Not switched on: It’s unclear whether this eBay seller was aware he had managed to capture his entire naked body in the reflection of his shiny metal kettle – but he managed to cover up his manhood with his tripod
TV star: This eBay seller has captured themselves on the small screen while taking a picture of a television they wanted to sell on the website
That picture’s a little bit overexposed: This eBay seller doesn’t take the reflection from the camera flash into account in this image
Snap happy: This seller got so carried away with taking pictures for the site, they failed to notice the very clear naked view of themselves
Bit more demure: She re-listed the item on eBay and this time covered up with a black coat. It attracted bids of £153, 911 after the original picture went viral
Accidentally exposing yourself in pictures posted on eBay may sound like a tricky thing to do – but it appears to happen much more frequently than you would think.
These embarrassing images were all posted online for the world to see by eBay sellers who thought it was a good idea to take pictures of their merchandise in the nude.
Unfortunately for them, their reflections have been caught in mirrors, CD covers, TV and computer screens as they took pictures for the website.
One eBay seller even managed to capture his entirely naked body in the reflection of a metal kettle but his manhood was strategically covered by his tripod and camera.
And once these photos go up online, it won’t be long before some eagle-eyed shoppers spot the blunder, as eBay seller Aimi Jones recently discovered.
The 21-year-old had accidentally included a naked view of herself when she posted a picture of a dress for sale on the website.
She hung the mustard yellow skater dress by ASOS on her wardrobe door to photograph it for listing.
