Unclaimed packages sold for a song

Ever wonder where unclaimed packages end up?

Piles of small returned international post parcels were put on sale by some stalls in Bazhou city, Hebei province according to Internet users on Thursday, reported The Beijing News.

Most of the parcels were supposed to be sent to other countries from Beijing but could not be delivered because nobody signed for them or nobody claimed them.

The parcels are being sold for ten yuan ($1.60) each, with the contents is only revealed after payment.

Although it may sound like fun, the regulations for returned parcels in China state that they should be kept for at least six months by the express company, and the case is now under investigation.
