Its a common practice on eBay to save removing the listing they just put the price sky high when they run out of stock and reduce it back down once new stock arrives.

Yeah, but this is Wish.com - selling hundreds of boards with apparently fraudulent price reductions.

I would hope that anyone with an ounce of common sense would google for Pi prices before buying. Maybe common sense isn't that common.

Seems common sense is not that common going by what some people will pay for things on line.

This is a very common retail practice.
The device was never that price and never will be, but uninformed individuals will snap up a 'bargain' before thinking about it - even if that 'bargain' costs more than the regular retail price elsewhere.

Although, this is one of the more extreme cases I've seen.
Current project: Handheld gaming / coding system.
Progress: Prototype complete, but has a tendency to burn the user.
Additional cooling required.
