This is definitely one of those purchases that every buyer should beware. But several roommates hope that there daredevil who decides to buy a mirror which, they claim, has not brought them nothing but trouble.
20-year-old student Joseph Birch and 43-year-old artist Sotiris Charalambous became owners of an antique mirror, after the former owner dropped him five months ago. Since then, as the couple, their lives were just bad luck and trouble, including health problems and financial problems.
Charalambous said that one night he woke up with a cry of "stabbing pain" and the reason for it was a mirror. Joseph and his neighbor began to see in the mirror, "flickering shadows", "" black flashes of darkness "and the glowing balls in the room. After Sotiris painted frame mirrors, roommates began to suffer from nightmares and their problems worsened. Joseph woke up and found that all of his body is covered with red scratches, and the two neighbors in the night do not fall asleep, for fear that they will present an antique mirror is some surprise.
But all of this is bad news for the buyer, and the good is that the mirror is in almost perfect condition and has only a few scratches. Men put a mirror on the online auction site eBay with a price of $ 200, but said it was "only right" way to get rid of the mirror, it is only because the new owner will be able to learn the truth about the mirror.
Joseph and Sotiris also added that the radiators beneath the mirror stopped working though they have never had a problem with the central heating before.
"I spent a lot of time in the apartment alone and became paranoid. I had the uneasy feeling that I was being constantly watched. I was so worried that my doctor had to prescribe me antidepressants for the first time in my life. I've never been particularly superstitious, but when I am with this mirror I start running through the body shivers and reduces stomach. Ideally, we would like to have got a mirror to those who already faced with paranormal or supernatural phenomena "- says Joseph.
While men have been a number of proposals, which are slightly below the reserve price. And one potential buyer said that would love to become a mirror as a gift to his ex.
