He's a crook or an idiot. The blurb says they are Hydro Coppers, and they are not. And I don't think he'll sell one, let alone 4 at that price.

Offering it for sale is one thing, but actually selling it is a whole different story.

Hopefully they get burned like the idiots that ran out and bought up PS3's on release day and tried to sell them on Ebay when nobody really wanted one.

Its a cheap way to make money, but if people are actually negligent or reckless enough to buy them, then there will always be people that will try this. I don't even like buying things at market value, let alone higher!
