If youve never been hit by a shill bid in an auction you werer bidding one, than you may wanna take note.
This is a classic example of a dude getting his friend(s) to bid up the price on an item.
I played the game even though I had strong suspicions, then when i sensed his greed was peaking , i stopped interaction.
Check the bid history.
The guy who was the winning bidders' bid history on the item reads like;
"I want it..I want it, I want it".. then when he wins the auction he's like ; " I don't want it".
So i get a second chance offer, and that just cements my case.
I am going to finally report this to Ebay tonight.
WARNING! Shill bidding IS and alays HAS BEEN Rampant on Ebay. Ive been the victim many times and finally lrearned to stop putting in bids untill the very last second of the auction in most instances where significant money is at stake.
BTW , I am "626Doveplace" in the bidding history.
I think one of the biggest slap in the face and brutal disregard for clientle on EBays part was maeking it so you have no idea of the location or bidding history of Competeing bidders. Atrocious !...and done so Ebay could scarf more money at the hands of unscrupulous sellers.
They knew this when they did it. They arent stupid, but they ARE white collar criminals. I vacnnot believe this is allowed! Someone up there likes them!~
