This the kind of greed that some Americans have instead of caring about one another.

So he speculated that he sell all those in timely manner to pay of the credit card debt he used to purchase and still come away with profit.

He overestimated the demand. That is his fault. It happens even in the stock market.

They donated them. They don't have them to sell anymore. A good deed.

He likely made enough to not really be in debt. Those markups were crazy and he sold over 10000 masks that that ridiculous markup. So while he won't have a business, he won't really be in too bad shape.

Doesn't seem to be the case. Rather, he had no tried and true medium to sell his goods as Amazon kicked his listings from the site. He could have tried selling the goods out of his garage, but something tells me he would have been a target for violence if that happened.

I can tell you didn’t read the article, or visit the local store. The demand for sanitizer is still very high.

He simply overestimated his ability to find a 3rd party to help him sell it on a national level.

Pretty sure read last night the state AG office is investigating him now. While nothing will happen, garbage like that when they decide to poke their noses gets expensive for the individual fast.
