Bet they would do something before eBay does. People have been gone to jail for this in the last two years that I have read about.


Shilling can equal like 10+years in jail, for it is some kind of interstate commerce fraud eBay may not frown upon it but the FBI Internet Division will.

Thanks for the heads up. Not bidding on items from someone like that

Riiiiggghhhttttt! 10+ years for shill bidding. Kinda harsh don't ya think? I think the FBI has bigger things to worry about than shill bidders on $100 sports cards.

For a single card yes, but of you have hundreds of cards you're doing this with, you start to get into some very high figures

Depends on the jurisdiction that prosecutes. Shill bidding is a criminal offense in Florida.

Ebay Seller Convicted, Fined for "Shill Bidding"

Shill bidding on eBay gets penalised

10+ years is a strech but someone can get in trouble for it. The FBI prob. wouldn't have a problem throwing a rookie or newbee on a shill bidding case just to get his feet wet

I didn't read the articles but I'm pretty sure no one went to prison for shill bidding much less 10 years.

I'm pretty sure if you are going to make an argument you should do some research. (Not on this topic in general) it looks kind of goofy saying "I didn't read up on anything but I think this is right"

I'll become a judge and sentence someone to prison for shill bidding that'll teach ya.

I am just more of an old fashion guy when people are going to debate I like to see where they got their data from, I also hate getting information off the internet. Good ole books for me. I have had numerous people get into debates with me over legal stuff (I am a criminal justice student) and then when I asked them where they got their info they just said that "they think that way" so it is just a pet peeve of mine arguing without having some sort of data to look at.

I do not remember if it was prosecuted federally or on a state level.


All of them were sentenced to over ten years.

Been trying to find article thought it was in SCD but may have been something like the USA today or local Star Tribune.

If I find it will scan and post.
