Today I have come across two items for sale on eBay by relatively high volume sellers where the price of the machine was more than 4 times the price of the item new.

Example: Brother 1134 serger http://bit.ly/18ExuHd
For sale on eBay for $1285.95 and claims to have 2 sold and 2 remaining.
Retails at Costco for $169 according to one review. http://bit.ly/17X3lRo

What is going on here? Is this a new trend by some less than scrupulous sellers or have I just not seen this before?

"A fool and his (or her) money are soon parted". Anyone who is looking to buy a relatively big ticket item is wise to compare prices. And this goes double if the description includes RARE. That is an automatic red flag for me. IMHO. it would be better to go to a dealer to see the machine up close and try it out before plunking down your hard-earned cash.
DH and I buy on eBay frequently and have had few problems but, again, do your homework.
