We Don’t Believe You, Woman Selling This Chair on Kijiji

“Well I’ve got this lovely armchair for sale. I’m told it is an Eames chair by my low-life ex.”
And that is how it begins—this listing for an armchair, for sale in Hamilton, titled “Eames Teak Armchair: EX ROBBED ME BLIND!” Allegations include not just theft, but a “secret transvestite hooker and cocaine habit.” If it’s a real account of infidelity and betrayal, of which the chair has become an emblem: harrowing. If it’s a fake one, intended to draw attention to the listing and thus sell the chair more easily, yeah, good luck getting someone to fall for that! Oh wait.
The full listing is after the fold.
