    The two that sold each went for $35.99 back in May this year. Some kind of error maybe? I've also heard of some sellers doing this while they are negotiating a sale with someone, so as to temporarily put the item on 'hold', although I can't really think why a seller would want to do that.

    Now that's more like it.
    Remember that while it is perfectly acceptable to criticize the content of a post - criticizing the poster is not.
    Mean spirited, nasty, snide, sarcastic, hateful, and rude individuals on Basenotes don't warrant or deserve my or other Basenoters' acknowledgement or respect.

    If this is a fraud tactic, there should be a way to report it. Sad.

    They can change the price after one sells. I've seen this with ebay listings from Fragrancenet, though it's usually just a couple dollars in those cases and the price starts very low to begin with. I don't know if it is automatically programmed to do that, but I would guess it can be, because I doubt a seller like Fragrancenet would have people adjusting the prices slightly after one sells. I've also seen some crazy prices like that, and of course it could be a mistake, an attempt to inflate the market, a joke, or perhaps something else.

    One thing's for sure, there's a lot of strange things going on.
    There's also a listing for one of those 1/2oz Aramis samples for the meager price of 200 bucks or so...

    A seller friend told me it's a way to "hold" for a customer asking for a reserve. If somebody asks for a hold, the seller lists the last one for a crazy amount so nobody will buy it and when the person asking for the hold puts in an offer for the "real" price, it is accepted and sold.

    Thanks, ZC. But what a lame method. I mean, just add a 'make an offer' button and be done with it.
    Ah, well.. As Mama says: 'The last idiot on earth sure ain't born yet!' .

    The idea is price it so high that nobody will buy it until that "make an offer" button is pressed by the person wanting the reserve.
    A.K.A. somebody has already promised to buy it for much less than the amount shown
