    I don't understand why this is. So, I saw a used set of cordless phones which go for $50-70 new, for $60. I saw a 2005 Nikon P&S camera which is worth about $10 for $60. I saw a used paper shredder from Staples for $40 when you can go to Staples and get the same one for $50. What gives?

    (I had similar confusion when I noticed that say, a Best Buy gift card with $83.47 left on it was selling for $87 on ebay. Answer: people buy them with stolen credit card numbers and after they get them they're harder to trace)
