There's a lot of amateurs buying up skids of Amazon returns and flipping them these days.
edit: My worst one, some years ago, was a "Pulled from working system, like new" Tualatin Celeron... pic was a nice looking one, I won it on a $7 bid, but then discovered seller had $20 handling and packing on top of shipping. Ugh, pay it anyway, still not a terrible price back then, CPU arrives, protected with cardboard, bubblewrap and in one of those CPU plastic packs, all of that totally crisp and undamaged, but the CPU... every. single. pin. mashed completely flat, two actually missing, looked like someone had dropped it on the floor and ground their heel on the poor thing. Like a dumbass, I go through the return procedure, pay to ship it back, another $15, then freaking realise that all eBay is gonna make them do is refund the listing price, aaaargh. So I'm out $50-ish with a return of $7... Glad the policies are different now, and hope sellers like that are getting shafted with a large spiky object these days.
Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.
