    What's awesome for that scammer is that he will be billed at least $200 (based on the current $2000 high bid) for the listing even if he ends the auction.

    Incorrect. The auction has to end with a winner. If he ends the auction early, there is no winner, so no fee.

    Yup the bidders are BS. The realistic ones are hovering around $1100-1200

    If he ends the auction early and there's a bid (which there is) he will be charged a final value fee.

    $1k+... Even if I was rich I wouldn't pay that on principle.

    You do know a 64 GB is $850 full-priced?

    Add tax (9.75% where I am) and it comes out to around $930 out the door from Apple ... so that's $1K going to Apple, a reseller would need to make profit and subtract eBay fees.

    Never mind £1000, a 17 year old student turned down £5000! :eek:

    Surely he could've taken it and offered the person behind him £2000 for their place? :p
