Did they actually charge merchants to get them listed on their site? If not, they had no revenue stream and it should've been obvious that they intended to scam in some way as soon as they started expensive signature campaign/advertising.

Are there any reported victims so far? I hope the scammers have invested more than they've gained and not achieved RO"I".
As far as I know, BitcoinBlackFriday.com (The legit one) also charges no fees for that, and they started a large scale campagin last year if I am not mistaken.

I don't think that's correct. Original BBF got a lot of free publicity but I'm pretty sure they didn't run any sort of paid-for campaign.

The point is, There are a lot of ways they could have gotten back their investments without charging all merchants like selling banners or even selling the website with the high amount of annual traffic it would've gotten if it turned out to be legit for a huge amount of money.

That sort of website is only active for few days/year. There's no way they could've generated enough revenue from banners (which they didn't have iirc) to justify amounts spent on sig campaign and ads.
For the same reason (large traffic but only for few days/year) there's very little chance anyone would buy the domain for any significant amount.
