Three Year Old Child 'Buys' a Pink Convertible on E-Bay

Jack Neal briefly became the proud owner of a pink convertible car
after he managed to buy it for 9,000 pounds ($17,000) on the Internet
despite being only three years old.

Jack's mother told the BBC she had left her password for the eBay
auction site in her computer and her son used the "buy it now" option
to complete the purchase.

"Jack's a whiz on the PC and just pressed all the right buttons,"
Rachel Neal said.

The seller of the second-hand car, a dealer from Worcestershire,
central England, was amused by the bid and agreed not to force the
sale through.

"Luckily he saw the funny side and said he would re-advertise," Neal said.
