A bidder on eBay pays $415 to have a stranger send strange and anonymous postcards from Poland to his "mark" — just to drive that person a little crazy.

Brian Sack came up with the idea to auction off his services when deciding what to do with some old postcards. Why not make a little money off them?

Sack is the author of numerous eBay ads and the book, In the Event of My Untimely Demise: Twenty Things My Son Needs to Know.
