Charging over RRP

Is it just me who finds it scandalous that there are organisations and individuals selling my books on-line for prices in excess of the RRP?
 
As an author my royalties are defined by my contract so regardless of what the book is sold for I get x. So, when a book is sold above RRP, all the extra money is going to the retailer.
 
What's more these are on-line retailers. They don't have the argument that they have staff to pay or a premises to maintain in a costly retail centre.
 
It quite frankly disgusts me that these people are making money off the back of my hard work. Charging up to the RRP is fine but above it is simply not on. If you genuinely cannot afford to sell it at RRP then please don't sell it at all.
