A man who says he was a former student at the Charlotte School of Law is auctioning off his name on eBay, saying he needs the money to pay off his college loan debts.
James Madsen says on the eBay page that the bidding on his name starts at $75,000.
“If you want my first name to be ‘Bob’s Supermarket’ ... I’m cool with that,” Madsen says on the eBay page.
On the page, Madsen says he finished one year at the Charlotte law school but had to quit when his application for additional loans was denied. He says he paid nearly all of his bills on time and thinks the rejection was due to the income-to-debt ratio.
Madsen’s story is told at greater length in the Huffington Post. In that article, he says his total debt is about $100,000.
