Default eBay Bidder Question

So I have a big item ending in 20 minutes and a new user with 1 feedback has started to bid on the item. Do people instantly look at that as shilling?? I'm hoping this guy doesn't ruin the bidding or scare people off which is why I'm reaching out for opinions on similar matters. The only other item like this sold to a new user with 0 feedback who bid 4 times in the last 5 minutes and I instantly thought it was shilled. Stupid question, but just hoping I get a fair shake. Thanks!

The more you sell, the more likely you get the newbie bids. Shilling accusations are like leaves, they bloom and people go nuts over them, but most eventually fall to the ground and turn to dust. You gotta push through the leaves and just be the best seller you can be, honest and true, regardless of your surroundings.
