Black Friday and Christmas shopping are here - but it may be harder than ever to snag what you want.
These scalpers / are terrible people deliberately inflating / skyrocketing prices just for the sole purpose of making a profit you should be ashamed of yourselves think of how many little kids are going to be heartbroken as their parents are unable to provide their Christmas presents all because of some greedy parasites (DISGUSTING) Removed

There is a simple answer to the money hoarding multi-homed sociopaths.

There are plenty of tactics to combat this

Intercept the goods in-transit, job done

Buy the overpriced thing, claim a fault and determine the return address, send something explosive or infectious, or any other number of things, or just pay them a visit kitted out as a samurai (those dudes understood honor, a great teacher)

I’ve got 28 More for sale already made over £20,000
Hope someone buys one from you with the intent of finding out the return address, and then pays you a visit. I could do with some cheering up right now Removed

Parasite is the perfect description for a lot of "business" people on this planet. Removed

The only thing worse than the scalpers and bots are the idiots who buy from them. I’ve seen so many PS5s on eBay, selling for £7-800. If everyone resisted and refused to pay the inflated price, there would be no market for the scalpers.

I managed to get a PS5 on launch day, only just, and paid the RRP. To those greedy little parasites that take advantage of people, shame on them. People who are swayable enough to pay these rip prices, maybe you have more money than sense. I more than understand the passion to want a new generation console but paying these parasites their inflated prices just continues the problem. Removed
In real life, nothing is so important that you either need it now or it's worth spending 10x the list price to acquire it.

Just let these parasites sit on their overpriced stock! Their negative cashflow will slowly eat them alive!
