Having a bit of common sense is special these days I guess.
It kind of depends on each person who ends up buying. Some are given the "hot pitch" and think they are buying stolen goods, and they deserve to get what they get. More often than not the pitch is along the lines of "the warehouse gave me 6, but my order calls for 4.....My boss is a ******* and will just take it home for himself if I take it back". In the buyers mind this is an expensive item that is going to be sold to someone so they might as well take advantage. They know the seller isn't taking it back or going to do the right thing. People who buy online are rarely under the impression that the item is stolen. They are getting goldbricked by believing they are buying a 1080p 3d projector with a high lumen output. What they get in the box is a vga projector, with anaglyph 3d (red and blue glasses), and very low lumen output.
It is a very gross misrepresentation, not a mere bending of the truth.
Passive speaker sets are sold at TR Theater Research to speakerguys for $55 with a MSRP of $1795.
Powered home theaters are sold at TR Theater Research to speakerguys for $95 with a MSRP of $2895.
Projectors are sold at TR Theater Research to speakerguys for $165 with a MSRP of $4295.
The price that speakerguys pay is way too much for the items. The speakers do have sand, cinder blocks, or pieces of metal to make them heavier. The projectors are not completely worthless, but they certainly are not worth more than 100-150 if sold legitimately.
