I emailed the seller of Obama’s birth certificate twice yesterday. She answered me with a friendly reply. No trying to get any kind of information.
All I asked was why jump through hoops trying to put Obama’s birth certificate up for bid only to have eBay yank the listing when there are two sites offering rewards. She answered me saying the site offering the $25 million would go to Obama if he turned over his birth certificate. The other site offering $1 million to anyone who could produce it, she never heard about.
The bidding reached over $1 million on eBay before it was pulled. Seeing as how the owners of eBay are big Obama supporters this didn’t surprise me. I was surprised it went as long as it did. But then I received a email from eBay trying to cover themselves.
I don’t know if this person really has the birth certificate but she was persistent in trying to sell it and did offer the winner to bring a forensics specialists to check it out and if they felt it wasn’t real could walk away without paying a dime.

This kind of email is often called a “phish” or “phishing attempt,” and the people who send them are known as “phishers.” Phishers use these methods to try to get your personal information, such as user names, passwords and credit card details. Because the emails may sometimes come through the eBay system, the phisher may seem to be trustworthy and have a good reason to contact you.
***Important – Protect Your Personal Information***
- Don’t reply to the sender either through the eBay system or your personal email account.
- Don’t open any links or cut and paste any Web addresses into your browser from the phishing email.
Last bid I saw, the price had reached over $20,000. Obama better hurry up and get them massive tax increases passed so no one would be able to afford it.
For those that want to track the bidding…the eBay link for Obama’s birth certificate
The eBay posting is back up. Last I saw it was up to $16,450 and rising. If this is for real all we can hope for is the birth certificate goes into the right hands.
The seller says the buyer can bring their own document forensic specialist to view the document before taking procession.
I wonder if Obama or his cronies are watching this or even bidding.
For the third time A seller who claims they have Obama’s birth certificate on eBay, the auction listing has been removed. The last time I was able to see it, the bidding had reached over $7000. Or anyone could out right buy it for $1 million.
WND The seller, identified by the user name ” colmado_naranja,” states, “President Barack Hussein Obama II was born in The Coast Provincial Hospital at Mombasa in Kenya at 7:24 PM on August 4th, 1961.”
“Kenyans were amused at how gullible Americans could be when it came to obvious things like the fact that Kenyans overtly admit to Barack Jr’s Kenyan birth, yet the Americans continue to believe that they know better,” the seller writes.
“I delved further and found that a birth certificate was on file at The Coast Provincial General Hospital at Mombasa,” said the seller, who claims the certificate is in Cedar Rapids, Iowa.
“I know several American expats that reside in Kenya. I asked the three that I could reach if they were aware of President Barack Obama’s Kenyan birth. All three said that they were most obviously aware of his Kenyan birth. I was shocked. They went to further say that they weren’t much concerned with it, after all they’d left the U.S. to start a new life abroad and didn’t have much interest in what was taking place in the States. Besides, they said, who would believe them anyway?
“Along with my Congolese brother Andylenny (brother in heart, not blood) and a 1993 BMW with only one working door I was off to Mombasa to get myself a copy (certified I hoped) of Barack Jr’s birth certificate,” the seller reported.
*My take…I don’t believe it even though this seller has a pretty good track record on eBay. But then again, every time its removed by eBay this person puts it right back up. I’m not real familiar with eBay but I do assume if caught ripping people off could get the person in some trouble.
If this is true, what this person is doing disgusts me. This person is putting the possible future of America up to the highest bidder.
The problem I have is why auction it off when this person could get $1 million for the birth certificate here or even better, $25 million here. If it were me, I would rather do that then being forced to jump through hoops on eBay and the birth certificate would be in the hands of people who care about America.
