    Ebay prankster 'gets reply from cannibal'

    A man who put his body up for auction on eBay as a joke reportedly had a serious reply from someone claiming to be a cannibal.

    Daniel O'Dee from Salford posted the joke advert after a drunken dare, says the Sunand it was quickly removed by eBay staff.

    But he was then shocked to get an email from someone calling himself 'Donnie, the Hanover cannibal' offering £2,000 for a 'fresh corpse'.

    The emailer even claimed there was a syndicate of eBay users who helped fund the cost of buying corpses.

    Even after Mr O'Dee emailed back explaining that it was a joke, 'Donnie' replied saying he was disappointed.

    "I'm disappointed that is was your own body you were selling as I want one as soon as possible," the message read.

    "If you have any other access to a fresh corpse I would be interested. I guarantee that it will be more than a fair price."

    When Mr O'Dee did not reply to that email, he then received a death threat.

    Just the facts, Ma'am.
