Went on it the other day to try a new fit, however many things in Jita were priced crazy high while others were priced at 100 ISK (which is what I know to be correct), but my question is why do people go there and price stuff to ridiculous prices...some sort of scam or is it dicky play?

CCP seeds items for 100 isk, not all systems are seeded.
Previous market orders get copied over each test server mirror.
While it is against TS rules to purposely buy out the seed-stock to relist, existing market orders are fair game. This makes non seeded items like faction and deadspace mods hard to come by.

Yeah, I'm a bit slow, or paranoid, hell it's eve, I see scams everywhere, but on the other hand people are still leaving messes outside of stations on the test server, someone left 3 obelisk's blocking the port, thought that was an idiotic thing to do.

You don't have to be paranoid on the test server. Nothing matters there and nothing can affect your account on the main server. Reprocess a freighter, welp a faction battleship, hell even the skill injector/extractor system can be gamed for free skillpoints if you've got alts.
