Chester Bennington’s Memorial Service Packages Are Being Sold On Ebay For Thousands Of Dollars
A private service was held for the fallen Linkin Park frontman last Saturday (July 29) at South Coast Botanical Garden in California. Now, people who apparently attended the service are auctioning off the special packages that were handed out to those in attendance.
The package includes a funeral programme, a wristband, lanyard with laminate and a pin with Chester’s signature engraved on it. There are currently two listings on eBay with one currently reaching over $51,000 and the other not far behind on $34,000.
Both claim these to be authentic and the ‘real deal’, but we’d definitely advise against giving these people your money. However, former Of Mice & Men frontman, Austin Carlile, posted the memorial package from the service on his Instagram.

If you see any more on eBay, please report them straight away.
