Baby in Brazil for sale for just $430 because ‘it won’t let parent sleep’

Bad advertising is all I can say. Nobody wants to buy stuff that’s got problems you know. They would have stood a much better chance if they had told us about the baby’s love smile, its cute yawn, full head of hair etc. Even OLX with its “everything sells” jingle would probably have a hard time making this happen.

Well, now that the police are involved the chances of sealing the deal are much slimmer.

Baby in Brazil for sale for just $430  because ‘it won’t let parent sleep’

A Brazilian baby was put up for sale for just $430 because it wouldn’t let  its parents sleep, police said.

Cops in Aparecida de Goiânia, in the central state of Goias, are  investigating after an ad for a tiny tot appeared on classified website OLX.

It featured a snapshot of a little boy, dressed in a blue outfit, alongside  the caption: “Cries a lot and did not let me sleep and I have to work to  survive.”

The ad, posted on Tuesday, was pulled after only 12 hours for breaching the  site’s terms and conditions.

But police children protection officer Marcela Orçai said officers were now  trying to track down the person who placed the promo.

“We are trying to locate the person who posted the ad,” Orçai said.

“We believe [THEY]may live in the Campos Eliseos neighbourhood […]but the  address given does not exist. Also the phone number has no connection with the  case,” Orçai added.

OLX, which has operated in Brazil since 2010, said it had no involvement  between advertisers and customers using its platform, reports  Jornal do Brasil.
