Quoted from littlecammi:
This could easily happen. A guy pays $45 to join the Spooky fan club just to order R&M. Virus hits and he loses his job or most of his income so sells his spot for just the actual deposit he paid. He's out the $45 (or more if he paid a PayPal fee to make the deposit).
That would be me! I sold my spot to another Aussie for what I paid for it in Australian dollars. But I'm out the Fang Club membership, which was $95 USD (about $135 AUD at the time). Thanks to the collapse of the AUD relative to the USD, I was looking at another $14,500 to get the machine here with the options I wanted.
But also thanks to the collapse of our dollar, my buyer got the spot for the equivalent of around $1350 in US dollars.
