Someone in China Paid $52,000 for a Super ‘Lucky’ Phone Number

In what may sound like a total what-the-fudge bidding war, someone in northern China was able to purchase a “lucky” phone number ending in five fives for the price of more than 350,000 yuan ($52,000).

According to South China Morning Post, the number, which was initially priced at 11,250 yuan ($1,674), saw a massive boost in its value by more than 30 times in just a matter of 12 minutes when 140 registered people placed their bid on the number during the 24-hour auction.
