Someone has just paid $202.50 for HALF a bitcoin.  MtGox currently $117 for a hole bit coin.  Why?

I would imagine chargeback fraud is very prevalent in these exchanges.

Yep naively sold bitcoin on there a few years ago and got chargeback on every single one. Even after 6+ months! PayPal don't give a flying fuck about you're associated with bitcoin. They won't even reply to emails or fight your corner if you sell bitcoin, no matter how much evidence you have.
