    I hate seeing people take advantage of this invite situation. Saw this today on a popular auction site. 70 dollars u.s. just for the invitation for buy it now. Screenshot_2015-01-11-13-11-34.png

    Agreed. I think everyone is aware of the morally wrongness of it all though.

    Don't post the links on a thread cause then the bots pick it up then they sell it on the interwebs

    It should be possible to notify the auction site that this is a non physical item that is sold and therefore it's against their terms.

    This might be a way. I don't really know about terms, tho.

    Right! You are just feeding the monster when you buy invites.

    Yup. In every, EVERY, market, it's the customer who's got the power: if nobody buys that invite, it'll expire, unless the owner decides to get the SS cover and then sell it.

    I did it for a while when the normal invites for the phone were still pretty rare. However I never checked if the according auctions were removed afterwards. But I'm 99.9% sure that it's forbidden to sell non physical items on a certain Bay.

    that's a rediculous price. In the netherlands, invites are being sold for like 5 euros max

    The only way to stop them is for everyone to stop buying them, the auction sites are not going to turn it down.

    I want an invite as much as anyone else but am not willing to buy invites from someone taking advantage of the situation. So I wait like my other opo forum brothers and sisters.

    Well, ahah, I won't be hunting for ALL the auctions! I'll try and report some of them as soon as I spot 'em, but I can't spend hours reporting!

    I would like to think "most" aren't. It is truly sad that "most" people are greedy and unethical. That thought sucks.
