Default Unreal eBay lots rip off!?

Came across these lately and it blew my mind. Seller goes through about ten a day and they sell for $30-$250 normally! Constant repeat buyers and great feedback too I just don't get it. Also claims to know nothing and the only description is you get 30 "folder" cards, 2-4 hard cased cards, & a random 50-60 total. By the amount of sales I'd say she has easily made $500,000 doing this!!!
Is it just me or are eBay buyers insane!?
Dont forget if you buy 25 within 2 months you get 1 super special card! So that will cost you a few thousand and you get most likely a $50 card. How does this work???

Normally not worth it i'm sure every once in a while you may find someone with a good deal but usually just a way for people to get rid of cards normally no one would want.

Shilling helps boost the prices until they catch a legit sucker. Check the buying percentage of all 3 bidders on the auction you linked.

I was wondering that even just the feedback is mainly the same people. Don't they have to pay fees and all for all the auctions when feedback is left? That would be a lot of money if they are mostly shilled by a partner or whatever.Wow 92%!? How does eBay allow this it's insane! It would be so great if another auction website came around.

No one pays fees if the transaction gets cancelled. Feedback is still able to be left though.

Lol I've seen this auction a couple of times before but never paid attention to prices it was ending at. I'd bid on one if I could get it for like $5 shipped :P

It's part of the con. Appear dumb and completely ignorant of the value of the goods.

I love the part when "she" brings up how mad "she" was when "her husband" bought a "$500 " card. It's funny how see-through some of these claims are just in order to get some schmuck to read that and think to themselves, "WOW, this girl is so stupid. I am going to buy this and there will be Mantle and Jordan rookies and she won't even know how valuable they are and I will make hundreds off her!!!" Then they buy the lots, get nothing, and figure since they bought one, "I may as well buy more until I get those cards she doesn't know about and get one of the special gifts!"
I don't know if I feel bad for some of the buyers or if they deserve it for believing something like this.
