It only takes one "sucker" on Ebay!
« on: February 14, 2013, 08:35:10 AM »
No, No, No! This is not about those taking a three dollar hive tool and charging 9 dollars shipping. Or buying the three dollar hive tool and reselling it for 9 dollars for neebee that know no better. You can see that all day long on Ebay.

But what about a buyer taking a couple dollar item, then after having a "buying history", raising the price by 500%. Making it seem that their item is much more valuable then it could ever be?

Check out this guy: http://www.ebay.com/itm/300567333532?ssPageName=STRK:MEWAX:IT&_trksid=p3984.m1423.l2649

If you check out his revision history for the item listed, he changed the item a total of 10 times. Eight times on price alone.

Any suckers out there?

But has the price been being adjusted upwards or downwards?

I need to quit stocking up on ammo and 30 round mags and start to stock up on egg cups.   I can now see they are going to be the next big thing.
