    OMG!! £1k for an item they don't even have and then ask you to wait a few weeks, by which time you'd be able to order one for about £25 (inc VAT+delivery) anyway.

    > £1k

    You forgot to add the £3.50 delivery. [£3.50 for the UK. Add more for other places.]

    Then he's still making 300% profit.

    Take the cost of the Pi and delivery costs away from the sold price [actual costs. Not made up ones] and give THAT to charity.



    Le EDIT: I'd allow 100% profit [~£25] for expansion.

    Morally Ebay should just say this is a charitable item any profits over cost price will be donated back to the charity, that would put an end to the Ebay scammers

    ebay take their cut out of the cost price the scammer gets back, scammer loses money and hopefully learns a lesson.

    In all seriousness, eBay would be douches if they did that.

    Say, for instance, the Pi guys whacked all the boards on eBay for charity. They'd end up losing a lot of money and end up out of business.

    All because they were trying to do something good.

    Raspberry Pi as the charity would be exempt, anybody selling one in a charitable auction would be allowed to make a small profit.
