Lehman workers selling stuff on EBay

September 17, 2008|From Bloomberg News

Lehman Bros. Holding Inc.'s bankruptcy has sent employees to EBay auction sites to offer knickknacks, memorabilia and even parting shots.

One employee was selling a Lehman water bottle.

Chief Executive Richard Fuld "told me this brand-new, never-used bottle is unbreakable, but he also said that about our mortgage business two months ago," the seller wrote on the website.

Bidding on the green bottle with a black cap started Monday at 99 cents and climbed to at least $20.50.

"Own a piece of financial history," wrote the seller of a Lehman fire safety team hat. "Please give this hat a nice home."

Bidding rose to at least $31.
