Jack, 3, buys a car on eBay

September 25, 2006

A LAD of three went on his parents’ computer — and bought a £9,000 car on eBay.

Cheeky Jack Neal made a successful bid for the Barbie pink Nissan Figaro.

The first mum Rachel and dad John knew was when they got a message from the internet auction site to congratulate them.

Rachel, 36, said: “We couldn’t understand. So we checked and saw it was a Barbie pink car which we’d bought for £8,999.99.”

By then Jack was asleep. But he woke next morning and told his parents: “I’ve bought a car.”

Rachel, of Sleaford, Lincs, believes she left her eBay password in her computer.

She said: “Jack’s a real whiz — he’s been able to log on since he was two.

Fitter John, 37, phoned the seller and explained the error.

Rachel said: “He said he would re-advertise.”
