I don't understand these guys either...but every now and then they do get a bite. The situation is similar in many antique shops and pawn shops. I am in college, so I know some real idiots. I actually know someone who payed $400 to have their Argus C-3 repaired...and it took 6 months to get it back. Someone else payed the Buy It Now price of $550 for a beat-up Mamiya Universal, which they never used, dropped and broke the rangefinder brightening glass, and then gave to me. Lots of people are stupid, and lots of people have money to blow. Counting on that won't pay the rent, however. These sellers are only losing money in EBay fees by doing this. People are stupid; the one thing for sure that I have learned in life.
