What the heck is the deal with this eBay item

I've been wondering about that one myself.  Very odd.  That's not the first time I've seen that either. Along with stuff that 'sells' for absurd amounts of money.
At first I though the absurd sales were attempts to manipulate the market.. but it doesn't seem worth the effort or ebay fees.  I almost kind of wonder with some of them if something more sinister is going on.. like money laundering.  That'd be a fairly obscure way to do it..

This Helios II has been "sold" multiple times for varying amounts and then suddenly hours later appears for sale again.  I'm done bidding on this each time it appears, because if I won, who knows what I'd receive or if the seller would cancel the auction.
