A old Sony Vaio laptop (about 5 years old?) appeared on eBay the other day. Look at the price it went for (remember this is an OLD laptop).

Now look at the bidding history:
http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewBids&item=220076376521

The highest bid goes from:
US $427.99

TO:
$9,999.00

Then that person bids against themselves up until $17,100.00

Money Laundering anyone?

Not sure if that is money laundering but regardless it is something fishy maybe the are packing drugs in the laptop and then packing the laptop in coffee beans and then shipping it... yeah Im off on a tangent but something fishy is up

Could it be some type of error in ebay?

I dont think so. I can imagine the price being shown wrong but in this case it was raised to this price over a few bids. Something really fishy is going on.
