MSI scalping their own 3080s on ebay, links included.

EDIT: MSI has responded to this directly.
Starlit Partner is an individual sales subsidiary working under MSI. They carry excess inventory and Refurbished items and would not be given newly released products such as the Geforce RTX 30 series GPU. As such, we have conducted an investigation and found out that an error allowed them access to inventory they were not permitted to handle.
Starlit Partner has been instructed to contact the individual customers who purchased these GPU and offer 2 options - return the product and receive a full refund, or a partial refund of the amount paid over MSI's MSRP.
Moving forward, MSI will enforce a stricter policy to Avoid situation like this happening again.
Essentially, an error allowed the MSI ebay seller subsidiary, which exists to sell excess and refurbished items on ebay, to accidentally access the newest and most popular piece of hardware on the market directly, and sell it on ebay. An error...
Also, FWIW, some folks believe it's only four 3080s that this happened to. Turns out there were 3090s sold by the same seller, also for inflated prices. Note that the sales dates start from the launch day of the 3090. Listings have been removed, damage control is in full effect, as just some random guy I have no idea how widespread this was before the story took off.
Original Post
As said, MSI is scalping their own 3080s on ebay under the name Starlit Partner. Browsing the Starlit Partner seller reveals that everything they sell is MSI, most (maybe all) new in a box. They have the nerve to say "We work closely with the manufacturer." Because they are literally the manufacturer.
Starlit Partner trademark
Link to 3080 being scalped
A card retailing for 759.00, potentially being sold by the manufacturer on ebay for 1359.00, and they are absolutely selling out of them. There were some available when I started looking into it and now the auction simply says 0 available, 4 sold.
Even if it's legal, it's certainly dirty, and how are they not being absolutely crucified for it already?
This was first posted a different sub and it was deleted. It has since been restored. /hardware allowed it to remain for visibility while it was unavailable at the original location.
Edit: Here's an initial impressions video from the owner of the discord where this was noticed. He runs a stock tracking discord full of people trying to score their own 3080s, so you can imagine several being potentially scalped by the manufacturer didn't go over well.
Final edit:
I've removed portions of the post that I had edited in with potential counter evidence from redditors that were trying to refute this or find a way to defend MSI last night during the time of the post. I get it, and I added it at the time for full disclosure, and if I'm being honest, I would have liked for Starlit to not be linked to MSI. I was actually hopeful that some of the "evidence" that was found would turn out to be correct and this was just some scammer impersonating the company. Since we have confirmation directly from MSI (see above) that Starlit is their subsidiary, and they do in fact sell MSI products on ebay in an official capacity, obviously there's no need to try to find a way to defend MSI. Whether you believe MSI's statement that the seller was able to access brand new inventory of items that are selling out instantly at retailers and etailers to sell on ebay for double the retail price due to an "error" is up to you.

Ich bin so durch mit eBay Kleinanzeigen.

Phase eins: Du willst was verschenken. Sagen wir: Eine hochwertige Schlafcouch mit minimalen Gebrauchsspuren. eBay Kleinanzeigen!, denkst du dir. Es gibt in dieser Millionenstadt voller Studierender doch sicherlich Leute, die sich darüber freuen. Gerade während Corona, wo niemand Geld hat. Also die Couch eine halbe Stunde lang gesaugt, wie es Mr. Monk gefallen würde, abgemessen, Fotos aus allen Herren Winkeln gemacht und ab damit auf eBay Kleinanzeigen.
Phase zwei: Nach eineinhalb Wochen keine einzige Anfrage. Du erinnerst dich, dass Menschen glauben, nur Schrott geschenkt zu bekommen, wenn man sein Zeug umsonst hergibt. Also Preis auf 25 Euro. Zappzerapp, die ersten Anfragen. Na sowas, denkst du dir.
Phase drei: Du hast auf alle fünf Anfragen geantwortet, auch wenn dein innerer Deutschlehrer wegen der ganzen fehlenden Höflichkeit der Anfragenden weinend in der Ecke liegt. Von diesen fünf Anfragen hat genau eine Person zurückgeschrieben. Klar, 15.30 abholen passt, schreibst du. Dafür verschiebst du natürlich auch gerne den Einkauf und den Fitness-Besuch auf später. Gar kein Problem. Du räumst schon mal den Flur frei, damit da später nichts zu Bruch geht, und bereitest die Katze mental darauf vor, dass gleich Fremde durch die Wohnung stampfen.
Phase vier: Du wartest. Es ist 16.30. Die Person reagiert nicht auf deine Nachrichten. Um 15.45 kam lediglich ein knappes 'Später bitte', das auf deine Nachfrage hin nicht weiter spezifiziert wurde. Du kannst dich nicht wirklich in deine Arbeit vertiefen, weil ja jeden Moment die Klingel läuten müsste. Also hängst du rum und vertrödelst den Tag, den du eigentlich sinnvoll nutzen musstest.
Phase fünf: Weil in deiner Provinz-Millionenstadt die Supermärkte um 20 Uhr schließen und es jetzt 21 Uhr ist, isst du Nudeln mit Butter und versuchst damit, den brodelnden Hass auf deine Mitmenschen zu ersticken.
Phase sechs: Um 22.30 Uhr radelst du kurz zur Tanke, weil der Abend ohne Bier nicht auszuhalten ist. Als du am Kühlregal stehst, summt dein Handy: 'Bin da wo sind sie??????' WO ICH BIN? WO ICH VERFICKT NOCHMAL BIN UM HALB ELF? HAST DU EIN VERSCHISSENES GLÜCK, DASS ICH NOCH NICHT IM BETT LIEGE UND SCHLAFE, DU FICKFEHLER, ICH HÄTTE SECHS SORTEN SCHEISSE AUS DIR HERAUSGEPRÜGELT, DU SAUERSTOFFVERNICHTER! WIE DU ERNSTHAFT GLAUBST, MITTEN IN DER FUCKING NACHT AUFKREUZEN ZU KÖNNEN, UM DAS DING ABZUHOLEN, DAS ICH DIR SOGAR GESCHENKT HÄTTE, WENN DU NUR EINEN EINZIGEN FUNKEN AN- UND VERSTAND HÄTTEST! NICHT AUF NACHRICHTEN ANTWORTEN IST DAS EINE, ABER DANN UM HALB FUCKING ELF IN DER NACHT AUFZUTAUCHEN UND WAHRSCHEINLICH NOCH ZU ERWARTEN, DASS MAN DIR DAS DING FREUDESTRAHLEND ÜBERLÄSST UND ES DIR AM BESTEN NOCH EIGENHÄNDIG ZUM AUTO TRÄGT, DAS IST WAS GANZ WAS ANDERES, DU HELIUMHIRN! DAS MAGENGESCHWÜR, WELCHES ICH AUS DIESER AKTION MITNEHME, BENENNE ICH NACH DIR!
Tirade Ende. Ich melde mich von Kleinanzeigen ab.
Edit: Auf Wunsch besagte Katze auf besagter Couch.
Edit 2: Danke für die ganzen Awards und so. Aber erzählt mir lieber eure Horrorgeschichten aus eBay Kleinanzeigen. So viel besser als wasletztepreis.

If you buy a 3080 or 3090 on ebay from scalpers, you're part of the problem.

These morons paying 2080ti prices...

Shower Thought: If eBay put a 3-4 month ban on listing PS5’s, this fiasco would be a lot more manageable.

I would think a majority of scalpers would cancel their preorders if they couldn’t use eBay as a sales platform, which would then increase available inventory with retailers. The consoles would obviously still sell out super quick, but at least they would be going to gamers instead of flippers.
It’s a pipe dream, I know. But just pointing out how platforms like eBay contribute to this problem.
EDIT: You guys, my post is from an ethics stance, not a business stance. I was merely trying to point out how platforms like ebay contribute to (or encourage?) the scalping problem.

WARNING: Do Not Purchase EBay Preorders for RTX 3080

We've currently got a glut of "pre-orders" of the RTX 3080 being sold on Ebay for $1000+. I'm a bit heartened to see that nobody is purchasing them but I want to re-iterate:
DO NOT BUY AN EBAY "PRE-ORDER." PRE-ORDERS DO NOT EXIST. DO NOT SPEND $1,200 ON A PRE-ORDER OF A $699 CARD YOU MAY NOT GET AT ALL, AS IT'S NOT A REAL PRODUCT.
I wish there was a way to mass downvote every single seller engaged in this fraud.
To expand: If a retailer is giving out pre-orders and Nvidia IS NOT, then there is no guarantee you're getting anything. And if the pre-order gets canceled, guess who gets all the money back?
Edit: Holy hell thanks for the awards, wasn't expecting that

FYI, anyone selling a PS5 on eBay will have the listing removed or sale canceled. It has to be listed within 30 days of release.

There are many PS5 stations being "sold" on eBay for an insane amount of money. Don't fall for it. No one is actually spending 5k-50k on a Playstation. When I saw how much they were going for, I tried to see if I could list mine. It wouldn't let me. I contacted eBay support and they said they are currently removing and canceling PS5 listings.
