Default Horrendously Obvious Shill Bidder

Seriously, WTF

I really like the look of this card and would love to bid on it, but what's the point when he's shilled it 3 times already and is using the same shill bidder on the current auction that he did on the last 2 listings

Current auction: eBay.com Item Bid History

1st shill failure: eBay.com Item Bid History

2nd shill failure: eBay.com Item Bid History

3rd shill failure: eBay.com Item Bid History

And each time it's ended at a lower amount than the time before, people have obviously caught on like myself and quit trying to win it.

So my question is do I try to bid on it from here on out with his listings hoping he gives up on the shilling and it ends for way less than it should and he actually follows through with the sale?

if they're all like this, to just call out the shill bid, then is it really the worst thing in the world?

Sellers need to report the retractions. To many sellers just let it go.

Considering all the false claims of shilling on here, yes. It's kind of scary.


I'm not defending the seller here at all. I just made a comment on the 2nd place bidder.

how does retracting your bid help expose the shill bidder?
