People Are Auctioning Boston Marathon Medals On eBay Amid Allegations Of Looting

And what’s more, both listings went up yesterday evening. Unopened marathon jerseys have also surfaced.

1. This listing went up yesterday afternoon around 4 p.m.

2. And this second one, from a different user, went up later in the evening around 9:30 p.m.

3. To be fair, eBay is bursting with Boston Marathon merchandise, most of it harmless and claiming to be for fundraising purposes.

4. But many people are rightfully skeptical, especially as reports of looting surface.
