    You love to see it

    There’s also the reality that scamming scalpers still makes this photo listing venture potentially profitable for even the most well-intentioned vigilantes. While the photo listing sellers we spoke to told us that they’re returning money to buyers they’re reasonably convinced are “real people,” they also said they wouldn’t return money to buyers they think are scalpers.

    “For the scalpers...fuck em,” Connomoodle0 told us.

    “I have no problem scamming scalpers,” Bates told us. “I have 0 problems taking money from unethical people.”

    Even worse with "limited" things becoming more and more commonplace. It leaves scalpers free to manipulate the market to their choosing with various other shit.
    I remember one dude bought a whole store's worth of PS5's and was bragging about it.

    Can they potentially get sued over that?

    If they do, they need to livestream that case.

    mostly enabled by brick and mortars closing down

    idk maybe. i don't see why they would. and even if you could i don't think you'd like to invite that negative attention on yourself as a scalper. better to take the L and move on
