This user have offered bounties for 1,000 reps... Wait, 1,000 reps? 100+100+100+100=1000? Could anyone explain me why is it shown 1,000, not 400?

ProgramFOX found two posts by that user that had bounties posted to them:
Both these bounties are recorded as having been awarded to this user. From the reputation history of that user I see that there were some.. suspicious events that point to the user having been caught at voting fraud before (a few user removed and serial voting reversed events).
So, although these bounties were awarded to this account, they were later revoked, manually, by a moderator, most likely because the answers had been upvoted through sock-puppets to inflate their likelyhood of earning the bounty. You can see that the vote total has significantly dropped when you look at archived copies of the pages:
(don't mind the changed profile picture; the user account is the same as the userid in the URL matches)
The bounty offered total was never updated. An insignificant side-effect of a vote-fraud cleanup then.
