    Mainly three:

    1) developing a forgotten film of the past is a challenging task itself, and in case something interesting pops out that's a bonus. However it goes, you take a glimpse to the world as it was 40 years ago.

    2) Usually a toy camera with forgotten film isn't priced 50$ for the film only, so it's cheap fun.

    3) This seller is an intentional scammer (see the "xbox's box" auction).
    I know a chap who does excellent portraits. The chap is a camera.

    I suspect the roll contains pictures of him laughing on his way to the bank.

    He's found a way of making money out of people's gullability and curiosity but eventually the negative feedback will pile up to torpedo what reputation he has. But by then I guess he will have made enough not to be worried.

    The negative feedback already has piled up on him. He's got a feedback rating of 95.6%, which on eBay is pathetic. (I get very wary whenever I see a seller with feedback of less than 98%.)

    That said, no matter what's on this roll, his buyer can't really complain too badly, at least not compared to the buyer who bought the "mystery auction" containing "50 items," which turned out to be 50 pennies! At least, assuming the seller actually delivers a roll of film.

    Neither of the people who bought his previous 'mystery' auctions have any right to complain. They are victims of their own stupidity.
