Well, would they know how to plug it in? These folk get a lot of 
"lost freight" and "unclaimed goods" from various shipping companies. 
A client of mine gives them all the unclaimed or abandoned repairs 
that they get. They also give them a lot of 'parts' units - they all 
seem to be described that way. Seems the way they work is they just 
photograph it and list it - nothing more. They move huge mountains of 
stuff and don't really care. Despite all the negatives pretty much 
every item they list gets sold.
