London, Dec 23 (ANI): A 3-pound bounced cheque written by Gordon Brown has been sold at auction for thousands of pounds.
Bill Paterson, warden of Goschen House, Brown's hall of residence at Edinburgh university, said that Brown was the only student he could remember whose rent cheque for 3 pounds bounced when he tried to pay it in, reports The Daily Express.
The Bank of Scotland stamped the cheque in red ink "refer to drawer". Paterson, whose name was misspelt by the student "Bill Patterson", kept the memento and had auctioned it off on eBay.
Now, it was reported that bids for the cheque soared past 2,750 pounds before the sale on the online marketplace eBay ended just before midnight last night. (ANI)
