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.

Well if you are un-happy with it or think its fraud then report them to wish.com not much else you can do.

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.

Simple. Buy from RS, Farnell, Element14, or any of the official suppliers. The prices are sensible, and the postage is small. You also get the correct warrantee.
