    heh. some people will try, literally, anything to make a buck …

  4. Different River Says:

    Yeah, and they didn’t even make that many bucks! According to the story:

    The company, claiming to act on behalf of an entity referred to as the Lunar Embassy in China, charged 298 yuan (37 US dollars) for each acre (0.4 hectare) on the moon, according to the report.

    Li Jie, CEO of Lunar Embassy, said that 34 clients bought 49 acres (20 hectares) of land on the moon in the first three days after his company became operational last month.

    So they only made $1,813 — and that’s before expenses. They had to get all those certificates printed up!
