    It's not really a scam though is it? They're not doing anything illegal and they're not using any underhand tactics to sell the product. If people are willing to pay that amount then fair play to them.

    It's like that whole thing with people selling LCR splitters on eBay, if buyers are stupid enough not to check with their local dealers then that's their fault. I think the people up in arms about this kind of thing are just a little bit bitter they didn't think of it themselves.
