Deja Vu Facebook Email Address Selling On eBay

I remember when Gmail accounts were hot items being sold on eBay and now it seems Facebook mail accounts may be next.

AllFacebook.com - the Unofficial Facebook Resource - is offering an account for sale. Money from the sale will be donated to charity.

"Don't want to wait for Facebook to send you an invite to Facebook email? We have one invite available. Rather than having to choose who gets it, we're auctioning off the invite. 100% of the proceeds will go directly to charity.

I wanted to auction off for Charity:Water, however I wasn't able to select that when creating the auction! As such, the proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen for the Cure organization which is working on developing a cure for breast cancer. You can bid on an email invite now by clicking this link. You'll get your own @facebook.com email address and access to Facebook's brand-spanking-new Social Inbox product," the site states.

Now who else will be offering them prior to their public release is yet to be determined. The longer it takes to roll out the product the hotter the items will become.

At the time of writing this the price was up to $71
