Default What's with this Dude?

I have a very expensive piece of proprietory business software that I am looking to sell when I get back on. It usually goes for 10-15 cents on the dollar from what it costs new, but I will still be happy getting that amount.

I have been watching the listings to see what I can reasonably expect to get for it and I have noticed a guy selling about one copy ever other day, usually a one-day auction starting at 99 cents. The item is only available from the publisher, so it is not as if the guy picked up a bunch on liquidation or something. In other words he is obviously selling copies. I think this is his second or third account based on how his listings and photos look.

The crazy part is I went to bid on one when it was at like $10 (knowing I wouldn't win it) just to have it in my "bidding" list instaed of my "watched" list.

This is why I am listing this in the PP section here. When I went to bid, it said that I was ineligible because I had not met all of the requirements of the seller...which was Paypal required.

My question is why would someone who is selling something that is possibly borderline and might be subject to VeRO require PP? To do this wouldn't they have to link their PP. Isn't that particularily dangerous considering he has probably been banned in the past and most likely the same will happen to his current account?

It just seems an odd way for someone in this scenario to do business.
Does he know something we don't or is he just plain stupid?

For instant payment.

You can still link accounts, but it requires more work.

The item I'm talking about didn't have BIN as an option so why would you have to have a PP account just to bid...especially since the seller seems suspect?
