New way to cheat eBay out of their fees

I was wondering if anyone else noticed this new trend poping up lately.
It seems that there more and more ebayers are getting around all the high after auction fees by doing this.
They Jack the shipping to the amount to the amount that they want to get for the item plus the shipping cost, and start the auction off at a penny or 99 cents that way they don't have to pay the end of auction fees.
The more I look around the more ebayers are doing this. So do you think it's a good idea? Would you do it?
I hate to say it but yes, I would do it too. The After auction fees are getting out of hand..Hell you have to pay fees to list it and now even higher fees when the auction ends?
Anyway, I'd recommend against doing it unless you want to risk your auctions being pulled by eBay. The fees may be high, but they're planning to lower them somewhat now that the head of the company is leaving.
I hope they drop the rates soon..The rates killed my shop. It cost me more to run it than I was bringing in.
I will have to keep an eye out for the rate change. I do hope it comes soon.
I wish they would go back to the 25 cent listing fees too.
Ebay make enough money from us.
