I want to buy it especially if it’s only worth $20.

I emailed him, if you buy ten or more, they are $50 each.

If EBay was not lame, they would ban that listing for price gouging and cancel that seller’s account.  


But we all know nothing will happen.  Hopefully no sucker will buy any notes from him.

Although his listing is kinda funny on a certain level, it's all wrong because someone might actually fall for it and buy it. I guess "Caveat Emptor" is definitely in play here. That said, eBay is full of ridiculous listings so no surprise that someone would figure they might as well try it and see if they hook anyone. One example is a 1971 silver 5 DM coin from Germany that some guy is asking $95 OBO stating how "rare" this thing is when I have the exact same (quite common actually) coin listed for $19.99 (and I'll be lucky to get that, if it even sells at all).

I wonder if the seller will go for a 1:1 BOGO offer with free shipping if I buy a bunch, since he had a near endless supply. If so, I’m down! 😂

I think this is for people with stolen credit cards or hacked paypal accounts to convert into cash. If the transaction goes before the card is blocked, the seller doubles his money and the fraudster gets free untraceable cash. If the card is declined, seller doesn't ship. It is not illegal to sell a $20 dollar bill for more than $20, otherwise a technicolor gold certificate would be only worth $20. Since the seller is not offering to launder money, there is nothing wrong with the listing. I am not defending the seller, but just being realistic. If you recall the new ebay rules would prevent this, as well as the similar gift card type of sale.

Dan Cong may be on to something. I've seen other listings of this kind in the past and just wrote them off as joke listings or someone drunk late at night messing around...this is certainly a plausible explanation.
