    Perhaps a few of the users had made an error in their maximum bid. thinking it was Yen as opposed to Dollars ?

    Otherwise it must be some shady dealings between the high bidder and the seller.

    I don't want to know the Ebay and Paypal fee for such a high amount of money!

    Ended at $14K. Crazy. Must be filled with something _very_ special. Screams money laundering to me.

    Definately scammers. One guy raised the pirce from $1500ish to $6000ish. Then another one made two bids in a row $4000 apart. It is scammers.

    I don't think that really matters if the account is STOLLEN, meaning it's someone elses account and they are just using it. No idiot would pay 14k for an old pbook 12" when you can buy a brand new up to date one for less then 3k
