    You should report them to Ebay. Like Zap said, they are trying to avoid final value fees but still make their money. That is against Ebays rules. If they find out about this auction, they will close it. Freakin crooks. :banghead:

    I asked him twice why it was so much, he never responded. I then reported his ass. I hate it when people ignore me.

    I was watching an auction just like that till I saw the shipping cost. It was for a Star Wars Titanium white TIE, $0.99 opening bid, shipping calculator showed $15.30 shipping. Screw that!

    Not only does it save them from Final Value and Listing fees...if for some reason you could get PayPal to do a charge back....he only has to give you back $.17 and you're out $90.00

    It's fraud. You'll probably get the item you want, and the seller's probably legit, but this is just a bad practice.
