* Costalot ([[MeaningfulName it's all in the name]]) from ''VivaPinata.'' While she probably wouldn't sell her own grandmother for a buck, she is doubtlessly extremely greedy -- she doesn't cotton to window shoppers at all.

** The [=DS9=] episode "[[Recap/StarTrekDeepSpaceNineS04E08LittleGreenMen Little Green Men]]" lampshades this. After Quark, Rom, and Not get thrown back in time to [[RoswellThatEndsWell Roswell, 1947]], one of the humans sizes Quark up pretty accurately by comparing him to his brother-in-law. His in-law's profession? Used car salesman.

* According to the campaign books, this is ''encouraged'' for ''TabletopGame/BattleTech'' game masters who run full length campaigns in especially questionable parts of space, such as the Periphery. The books encourage the GM to do their best to scalp players for actual goods in the Periphery, anywhere from two to ten times the going rate in the Inner Sphere--while at the same time trying to fob off awful, lower-quality stuff for cheaper than the going rate (but still far more expensive than it's worth). This is particularly bad in regards to [[HumongousMecha Battlemech]] related technology, where the markup can be up to ''twenty'' times the going rate. A ruined ''[[TheAllegedCar Assassin]]'' in the Periphery can cost as much as a new ''[[LightningBruiser Marauder]]'' in the Inner Sphere!
