Default Shill bidding

At what point do you red flag something as shill bidding? There is a card up on eBay right now I wanted to bid on. Top bidder has feedback of 2 and second highest bidder has 93% Activity with seller.

Depends on what item it is, and who the bidders are High activity with a seller doesn't necessarily mean shilling, could just mean they don't bid much.

Bid 20,000.00
Then send a PM after you win saying based on bid activity you feel your purchase price was drastically inflated and you are not going to be able to pick it up.
then neg him with the following "Looks like I may have been suckered by a shill bidding team"

You PLAY the game, you play it hard and use the rules. Emotions are a waste of time as ebay IS soulless
