A Malibu estate originally purchased for $6 million that is now listed for more than $15 million. Not bad. [The L.A. Times]

The company's updated policy specifically addresses the issue of reselling rapscallions, stating, "Target reserves the right to prohibit purchases of any merchandise to resellers." [Ecommerce Bytes]
