    Curious to understand how that's worth $150 to anyone....

    Well title says "Selling for parts". But then I would have thought $148 is too even too high for that. Be surprised if it sells.

    Doesn't add up. Other than the point of bend everything looks completely undamaged. It'd take a LOT of force to bend a board that much to snap it. you'd expect damage elsewhere on the board showing that kind of force. Looks more like deliberate damage than a transport accident (and if it was transport accident, you'd claim insurance on it, and they'd take it back and give you a new one).

    and yeah. not worth $1.50 let along $150.

    Looks like some kind of store selling it too, which makes it even weirder.

    Maybe tried to fit into the letterbox opening.

    That'll buff out.

    It's not something uncommon to happen. Have had large PCB orders folded exactly like that. This is unlikely a transport issue, this is caused when the packaged item (usually in a box of unproportunate size/weight or unusual shape or just pure bad luck) gets caught on the roller sleds in the sorting center DC. Usually every box has its barcode label faced upwards so the sensors on top of the conveyor sleds can read the parcel label and sort it by location either to air freight off to another interstate DC or goes to the local AusPost pick up cages. Sometimes packages that are not firmly on the conveyor roller sled get caught and eventually cause jams. Sometimes they fall off the sled, other times they get mangled until manual intervention by a floor worker.

    Surely these things require "fragile" handling?

    postal companies, delivery drivers dont care about fragile handling, ive seen it with my own eyes a guy here delivered something to me , he rummaged around , found my item then threw all the others that were on top of it just back in not caring how or where they landed or how
