So I am thinking about fighting scalpers on ebay with my brain

The least expensive smash bros switch console pre-order on ebay from a canadian seller right now is 950 CAD. To put this in perspective, a non-special edition switch console sells for 380 dollars plus tax, so it's a ludicrous price hike fueled by pure greed.
What I am planning to do is list the consoles for much cheaper, say 750.00, which will appear to these sellers to be competition. If anyone buys my consoles, which don't exist, I'll just wait a couple weeks and then refund them. But my goal here is that by seeing much cheaper consoles on ebay, these greedy bastards will lower their own prices. Then, I'll make a new ebay account and buy one for 750 from them instead of 950.
Do you think it will work? And who is being the bigger dick? Me or them? Because it's really their fault that I couldn't buy one at the regular price.
