I'm wondering why lately I see a lot of people put the $ sign after the Figure?

EG; For sale Small Fridge 50$ OBO
When it should be.
Like For sale Small Fridge $50 OBO.

Just Curious?
They do it because we say "fifty dollars", and not "dollars fifty". I'm not sure it's important or a sign of illiteracy.
I agree with that theory. Plus it might also be a sign of globalisation as in almost every other language the currency is written after the amount
