I'm glad you can get free next day delivery if you have Prime. Paying postage on top of that price might put people off.

Be careful, everyone. I've read in several places that when items are posted for sale on sites like Amazon and Ebay and have ridiculously high prices like this -- way over what you'd expect to pay for even the highest-quality item -- this is one way that bad people on the Dark Web use to move around money from criminal activities. Best to leave well alone!

skmoskmo212 You're so right in theory to want to report them to Amazon. We can try but the likelihood is that when Amazon takes down these things, the bad guys will just replace them with more of the same.

kfe202 yeah u r so ryt in what your saying! I have always felt that for the size of company Amazon is worldwide they should really have some sort of team who monitor what “sellers” are posting & making ridiculous prices up

skmoskmo212 Thanks for getting back to me on this. You're so right. Amazon is big enough to do something to monitor what's being posted and even if their efforts to clean up the site were not 100% successful, it would still be better than it is now with some ridiculous prices.

It is probably similar to Ebay where this also happens, The reason, I discovered, is that when an item is out of stock it is much cheaper and easier for the seller to alter the price to an amount that nobody in their right mind is going to pay, than to remove the listing and have to pay again to re-list. The price being changed to the required price when the item becomes available again,

davidstockport Thank you. I'd never considered this as a reason and yet it is so obvious and makes sense. 😆

sunny101 Exactly Obvious! (when you know the answer)- it wasn't too obvious to me either, until I saw the answer somewhere, it was as if someone had switched on a light in my head. Image

BORDERJOE Not crazy at all really - traders who use online selling sites are charged to list an item, if they remove the item because the item is out of stock, when they get fresh stock they're charged again to re-list.😀

Wow that is a crazy price for a pencil case. I wouldn't pay more than 10 to 15 pounds on a pensil case and that would only be if I loved the design

They inflate the prices so they don’t need to delist out of stock items, because it costs them to list items again

TinaKaur94941 I should think if they have it could only be for 1 of 3 reasons:

A) a mistake

B) more money than anyone could fathom, or

C)the psychiatrist was unavailable that day lol
