    Not a big deal. Make sure they make nothing by helping people avoid buying from scalper. How? I don't know. :)

    As annoying as it is, it's not wrong. It's not like these people have stolen the watches or anything. Supply and demand is a fact of life. If you missed a decent preorder date, you weren't committed enough.

    you got the shaft because you were 7 minutes too late....

    Are people actually dumb enough to put a $300 deposit down on a item they're buying on craigslist?

    Agreed. No one is forced to buy through these people on Craigslist or eBay.

    same as on ebay...for starters I would NEVER buy something from anyone who doesn't even have the product yet.

    But it reduce the amount of stock available to real customer. Of course I would never encourage them but the reason the product is sold out is because of scalper. They are not real customer.

    Even if no one scalped it, it still would have sold out.

    It's annoying, yes, but it's not illegal. I guess these devices will go to even more "real" customers as they are happy to pay a huge markup!

    They don't buy them and ship them to landfill you know. Someone who wants one gets one.
