A Florida man thought he had landed a steal deal after paying $9,100 (approximately Rs. 6.3 lakh) for a villa in Tamarac, only to be told that he had only bought the strip of grass in front of the villa. According to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Kerville Holness purchased what he thought was a villa during a Broward online auction. Instead, he got a 1-foot-wide, 100-foot-long strip of land on Northwest 100th Way in Spring Lake- valued at $50 or approximately Rs. 3,500. To add to his woes, Florida officials now say he is stuck with the deal, as state laws do not allow the refund he is seeking. Speaking to the South Florida Sun-Sentinel, Mr Holness said that property appraiser pictures linked to the auction site showed the villa as being the parcel he was bidding on.
