Not sure if this is OTT optimism or a bad case of fat fingers when setting up the advert.

I suspect this is a seller who sells a lot of this product and has temporarily run out of stock.

I believe it is cheaper, in terms of eBay fees, to have a listing running permanently (that you can tweak the details of) than to be constantly adding and removing the listing as stock arrives and is sold out.

So in this case when the supplier runs out of stock he simply bumps up the price to a level where no sane person would actually buy one. And when stock arrives he puts the price back to its normal level. And I guess if somebody was mad enough to pay the £30k then the supplier would move heaven and earth to fulil the order!

Or maybe not? dont know
