Why do people delete prices after an item has sold?

Hello all! 

As lolita is my hobby, I keep an arsenal of folders and screenshots of auctions and items I am interested in. It helps me to know the average price of an item and how rare it is. A lot of the time when I see a sale on the community that has been completed, the price has been erased instead of just being crossed out. 

Im curious why people do this? There seem to be a lot of "price check" discussions and it makes it harder to research sales when this informant information is not there. I know users are now scared of people paying scam invoices but perhaps there are more obvious reasons XD

Ive also straight up asked people "how much did this sell for :)" (with a preface) and people give me vague answers...?
