This person bought 25 Graphics cards off Amazon with a bot so that they could sell them to desperate people for higher prices. It hurts to look at...

    Yea, Amazon sadly isn't doing to much about people using bots, it's nearly impossibly to get a card there.

    It does suck that so few retailers are even trying to stop the bots, but I'm least surprised Amazon isn't trying.

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    If he flips them on Amazon as a third party seller, they will get that commission too.  So I don't think trying to stop this has ever crossed their mind much the same as all the counterfeit products.

    Yup Amazon is pretty complicit when it comes to things like this. As long as they are making money they don't care much about scalpers.

    Looks like extreme luck. There are hundreds of bots on amazon competing with each other.

    Yep, Amazon is pretty much EBAY now......
     
    3rd party sellers get products , then flip sales at exaggerated prices & Amazon gets commission both times...

    Ebay/newegg/amazon need to clean up the trash that people are selling. Its just not good business. Imagine going into walmart tomorrow and having to buy items to the highest bidder. Just doesn't make sense.

    It's crazy buying any hot product today.
     
    Walmart for a ps5 was a hoot, it's one strange system that means you either get super luck or play the game walmart has set out.
     
    Dunno if it keep the bots out - but I did score a ps5 that way.
     
    For the 3080, 3070, AMD CPUs, it's been a crap shoot and insane.
     
    We need more queues with 1 person limits.

    Bots are the worst. Amazon could do a lot more, but why would they? People will keep using their services.

    I don't even bother trying for video cards anymore.  Not even bestbuy. I enter the shuffle for my daily L.

    How often does Best Buy put out stock?  I have to admit I haven't tried there at all...

    I must not fear. Fear is the mind-killer. Fear is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear. I will permit it to pass over me and through me. And when it has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see its path. Where the fear has gone there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

    This. I have a watcher running and Amazon sells out as soon as cards show up but Best Buy doesn't seem to get as many cards.

    Amazon is probably the hardest retailer to purchase from because of bots, so it doesn't surprise me that those are all from there. Even with their recent addition of CAPTCHA and other measures, by the time I get alerts from discord servers/distill, the gpus are long gone.

    bots will buy them all in a blink of an eye, if the vendor doesn't care about it there's not much we can do about it :(

    Most of the vendors don't care who is paying them and it's not like anyone is going to boycott Amazon over this to get it changed.

    There's a special place in hell for people like this.

    Honestly, you can't even call yourself a decent human being when doing this kind of crap. You can tell yourself that you're just a business person capitalizing on the current market all you want but at the end of the day, you're a turd of a person with loose morality.
