Now wait a sec. So it's OK for people to go "fishing" for quick BIN prices from people on eBay who have no clue that their item is worth a LOT more, but it's NOT ok for a seller to fish for idiots who can't do a little bit of research before they overpay for an item? This is beginning to seem like a double standard.

There is not double standard at all. Like anything else, it depends on how you go about asking the seller for a BIN. If you lie to the seller and tell him something is worth $20.00 and you'll happily give him $30.00 because "you have been looking for this item for such a long time" when its really worth $200, then that is feckin BS. However, if you just ask a seller if he has a BIN in mind, then that to me is not really any different than if he put the BIN on there in the 1st place.  As far as fishing for idiots, I agree that the onus should be on the buyer to check things out before he buys them, but then again there are people who fall for scams all the time and it doesnt make it any less of a crime.

Imo, it's the intent that matters. Creep's intent is to take advantage of ignorance. Someone asking for a private BIN, setting it far lower than the item is worth - that's just as shady, imo.

If a seller has set a public BIN that's lower than the value, then I've got no problem snapping up that item, or seeing someone else do the same. The seller is asking for a price, you're meeting the price, there's no shady intent there.
