Child sex-trafficking: The curious phenomenon of grossly overpriced items for sale online

The Legal Dictionary defines “pedophilia” as “an obsession with children as sex objects. Overt acts, including taking sexual explicit photographs, molesting children, and exposing one’s genitalia to children are all crimes.

Acts of pedophilia are crimes. So it stands to reason that pedophiles conceal their activities by using symbols and code-words to communicate each other.

According to the FBI, below are the symbols pedophiles use:

Law enforcement authorities and online Urban Dictionary-like resources have identified the words in the Podesta emails, such as “pizza”, “hotdogs”, “cheese”, “sauce”, “pasta”, “handkerchief” and “map”, as code words for child sex trafficking. Writing in code provides pedophiles a cover story in the event their communications, such as the Podesta emails, are discovered. (For more pedophile code-words, see “Pizzagate: The Podesta ‘pizza’ emails“)

But how do peodphiles procure their child-victims?

As retail sales have moved from brick-and-mortar stores to the Internet, so are sales and purchases of children. But the online sale of children to pedophiles, of course, cannot be overt. Just as pedophiles communicate with each other via symbols and code-words, the online sales must also be conducted in such a manner that only pedophiles know that the “merchandise” they’re buying are children, instead of a lamp, a sofa, or some other innocuous item.

Of late, alert netizens have noticed a curious phenomenon of GROSSLY overpriced merchandise on sale on certain websites, beginning with a nondescript 66.1″ convertible sofa on sale on Wayfair — a Boston-based e-commerce company that sells furniture and home-goods — for the ridiculous price of more than $18,000.

It is noted that the sofa’s strange price of $18,3003248256 is exactly the coordinates of Little Saint James, the Caribbean island owned by the late convicted-pedophile Jeffrey Epstein.

Some netizens, however, point out that the image of the convertible sofa is a photoshop — that someone had altered the price of the sofa. Tweeter @Missterr123 shows how it is done.

The problem is that netizens also found other GROSSLY overpriced items on Wayfair, including a modular sectional sofa for $42,234 (original price), storage cabinets for over $12,000 each, a show curtain for $9.999, a kitchen faucet for $9,999, and a pillow for $10,098.


Netizens also note this description of nursery furniture on Wayfair:

All of which prompted this “debunking” by Amit Sharma of The Courier Daily:

This July some social media users from Reddit and Twitter put allegations of child trafficking on the [Wayfair] company…without any proof or reports from the concerned authorities like police, finance, and deep investigations. They only considered the fact that the products are overly priced than other similar items….

Well, the images shared on social media with high prices are real. But it shouldn’t be the sole reason to link it with child trafficking. Without any police or other investigation reports, it’s illogical to say these things on the internet.

When we dive more deeply into the incident, Wayfair is among the large businesses of the country and why would they use their official website to do such as big crime publically? Apart from this, child trafficking is a big punishable offense, the people who do these things never want to do it on a platform where they can be easily tracked.

Then why these cabinets are listing with a high price of more than $10,000? Well, Wayfair reached Newsweek and made it clear in a statement that these cabinets are made for industries that are actually expensive and similar in design with others.

Wayfair temporarily removed those listings as it is failing to explain the product and price relation. Here is the statement,

“There is, of course, no truth to these claims. The products in question are industrial grade cabinets that are accurately priced. Recognizing that the photos and descriptions provided by the supplier did not adequately explain the high price point, we have temporarily removed the products from site to rename them and to provide a more in-depth description and photos that accurately depict the product to clarify the price point.”

Wayfair’s denial notwithstanding, netizens have found other GROSSLY overpriced merchandise for sale on other websites (Amazon.com, eBay, Etsy, Walmart), including:

  • A wooden shoe-organizer for $9,999.
  • A cup for $7,459.31.
  • A bottle of Johnson’s lotion or wash for the strangely precise price of $20,625.93, with this instruction from the seller: “If the item arrives and is DOA (dead on arrival)…please report the problem within 2 business days….”
  •  A lifelike silicone male baby-doll for $7,000.
  • A toy box for $9,999.

I haven’t verified the above items, but I can confirm that there really is a silk down pillow on sale on Amazon.com for $10,233. Here’s the link, which is still active as of the time I’m writing this post (6:18 AM, July 24, 2020):
