The Worst Deal Ever

Someone please help me understand this.  I looked at gift cards on ebay, and a lot of them are selling for more than the value of the gift cards.

There was one gift card for Amazon that was worth $100, but 9 people had pushed the bidding on it up to $191.50 with three and a half hours still to go.  I’ve tried to come up with some explanation, but with no success.

Are sellers just taking advantage of people who are really bad at math, or what?
