    A South Florida man thought he snagged a deal when he paid $9,100 in an online auction for what he thought was a villa. What he got was a 1-foot-by-100-foot strip of land.

    The land, valued at only $50, starts on a curb and goes under a wall separating two villas in the Spring Lake community and then out to the back of the lot.

    An official tells the South Florida Sun Sentinel there's not a lot Kerville Holness can do about his purchase.

    Holness says he was deceived. He says property appraiser photos linked to the auction site shows a villa being on the parcel he made a bid on.

    But the newspaper says the appraiser's site and information on the county's tax site show no building value.
