So far there have been 38 bids and the current winning bid stands at USD $999,999.00

The item listing descritipon is as follows:

'If you win this auction I will mail you a piece of paper revealing the true identity of "Banksy".

I have uncovered his identity by matching up the prices of his sold pieces to corresponding tax records. I will reveal no more details.

The winner of this auction is the only person I will ever share this information with. The piece of paper will say his name, nothing more.

I give you 100% assurance that it is most certainly the full name of the street artist known as "Banksy".

Ebay previously ended this auction because I was selling something that was not "tangible".
It is now tangible.

If you wish to reach me outside of this auction: TheIdentityofBanksy@gmail.com'


  1. Oh no! I hope Banksy's true identity stays unrevealed (at least while he lives). So he can roam the streets freely and mysteriously, and creates more magnificent works.

  2. @ C A T The listing was removed by ebay so I guess his identity will remain anonymous for the time being :-)
