I can't read it. There's no bolding, other than this: "The first buyer an antique buyer-refinisher."

I've seen this sort of thing before, and I can sum it up in one sentence:

Junk sold on ebay is given a "haunted" backstory in order to drive up the price.

True, although I know someone who knows the current owner.

Seriously dude? wow you've got more guts than me. The guy who currently owns the box has said that freaky stuff has been happening to him.

A haunted box! OooooOOOOOOooooo!

I can give twice the scares for half the price: I'll just point you to one of those websites that has a picture and then something jumps out of it and screams.

Even if it is fake, still would make a good movie, but yes it does sound interesting.

Damn Dibbuk Box story I just went to walk to the bathroom down my dark hallway and for a split second I thought I saw something out of the corner of my eye and it scared the shit out of me, but of course it turned out to be my own damn shadow.
