That's capitalism for you, supply and demand. Clearly the seller thinks people are willing to spend the inflated price. I have no problem with the action, but that doesn't mean I'd be willing to spend the $$ on it.

Absolutely happens to me as well. A family member will order something that is non-prime, then it will cost postage plus restocking fee to get 70% of the price.

The same reason politicians spend billions every election to advertise on the radio, TV and print media. (Many) People will chose believe anything they see, regardless of what's logical and realistic.

I've bought new products for higher than retail before... nothing wrong with a business trying to capitalize on demand. Tho Americans say "corporate greed" yet if they had 10 of the iPads and 100 customers lined up wanting them, do you think they wouldn't try to get as much as they could too? Hypocrites.
