Default Confronted a seller about using a shill bidder...

I checked out a suspicious "runner-up" to one of my winning bids. This explains the story....

30-Day Summary
Total bids: 298
Items bid on: 38
Bid activity (%) with this seller: 100%
Bid retractions: 0
Bid retractions (6 months): 0

So I write the seller this:

So what are we going to do about you using another user id to drive up the prices on your item(s)? Most importantly, this one. Ebay knows of the situation....please get back to me. Joe

-----------------------------------------

The seller writes back:

Joe... would you still like the card. Make me a fair offer and we can conclude the sale.

----------------------------------------------

Pretty interesting, no denial, probably because I acted like ebay knew, lol.

what about this one


30-Day Summary
Total bids: 42
Items bid on: 25
Bid activity (%) with this seller: 100%
Bid retractions: 0
Bid retractions (6 months): 0
and to make it more intriguing , he has 103 out of 175 feedbacks from that one seller & this seller happens to own a card store which he says he sells cards online for his customers, which to me opens the possibility of shill bidding by a mile

I personally would not even buy the item from him if he was shill bidding. I make the mistake from time to time of placing a high bid on a item if I know I am not going to be around the computer near ending time or will not have my phone on me. I know I am asking for it, I know!!!

Well one time I placed a high bid of 120, only to see a shill bidder putting tracer bids in like 4 in a row and finally outbid me which my iphone alerted me of soon as it happened. Well I check my ebay page and see I won the card. Had me so mad I emailed the seller and told him I wanted to cancel the transaction. I did not mind spending the money at all, but I just felt like I was cheated by a dirty seller.
