Do you remember this ebay auction?
It was hillarious. I would say it was from 2003–2005.
I dont remember any specifics other then that the item he was selling was haunted, and he had hoped that selling it instead of giving it away would break the curse. No matter what he did, he always got the item back. He posted several updates on why the particular item was scaring him that hour. Does anyone have any idea what I am talking about?
