I was reading the article again. It said two sold so far.

we'll if their relatives bought it, there's no lost.  He can probably coax his friend or relatives to buy it, then he reimburse them later just to boast that people are willing to buy at this price. Marketing ..

The picture shows them in the supermarket, just sitting on a shelf.

Is crime so low that they can leave $1000 fruit out with apples and longons. Or is it that hard to hide to a durian on a person  :P
