Web wife jilted on the auction block

Enough already

It is with great sadness that El Reg informs its readers that Kay Hammond - the 24-year-old blonde internet entrepreneuress from Birmingham, England, who tried to find a husband by auctioning herself online – will not be getting married. Well not in the short term, anyhow.

It seems that Ben Webb – the chap who bid more £250,000 for her hand – can't be found.

One "Ben Webb" was traced, but when confronted, he knew nothing of the auction. Apparently, he's just returned penniless from travelling overseas.

A spokesman for Miss Hammond told The Register that it seems the bid appears to have been a cruel hoax.

It is unlikely that Miss Hammond will place herself up for auction again, he said.

Oh well. ®
