Default Shill Bidder Alert

Ok as many of you may already know BIGBOYD is well known for shill bidding so i found one of his auctions where it is terribly obvious 800+ bids and 95% with this seller. Anyway i was hoping everyone with an ebay account would go and report him. Just go to this listing scroll down click report.....and then in the 3 drop down tabs select listing practices, fraudulent listing activities, and seller is using other accounts to inflate price.

Pretty sad when you shill bid on auctions less then $5


Here is another example on a closed auction

I have given up trying to get ebay to do anything. Myself and others have reported clear shills and nothing ever happens. I just stay away from auctions where there is clear shilling going on

Yea i refuse to bid on auctions where shilling is happening.....i think these big guys dont get banned because they bring ebay soooo much money in fees. Its bull ebay is the worst i wish another site would somehow overtake them but every site that comes out cant compete because it cant get the following so seller end up losing more money because there arent as many buyers.

I actually will bid his items for shear fun, knowing full well that no one is going to win.

Although, in a good way, I DID accidentally bid up an auction to $2 early last year on a Michael Crabtree XX/25 Score Inscriptions card and actually won it! haha! Not bad for a card produced to 25 - at least it appears to be a good investment now

BigBoyd msgs me and says how could he possibly be shill bidding when none of his items get relisted and all are paid for. I say because its not the winning bidder that is shill bidding and a good shill bidder will never win his own auction. He thinks we are all idiots. Hes like ill show you receipts of purchases..blah blah. It proves nothin because he doesnt win his auctions its the IDs who are a bid below that are shill bidding. He told me i could call if i wanted. Whats the point.....hes just going to spew the same lies.

whats more confusing for me is that swag no longers sends his stuff to comc, so I'm not sure where he is reselling now. I know he isn't too active here but if he could chime in that would be great, if not, oh well, just another boyd bla bla bla thread.

Yea i figured most people knew already. I just was frustrated and hoped maybe if enough ppl reported the bum ebay might actually do something.....but they wont....they never do.

i know boyd personally and i used to see him at all of the big shows now i have not seen him in at least a year i knew he was selling on ebay i have seen swag cards at the Chantilly show last year when they were the top lister on comc but that was the last time one thing i have noticed is that some guys get to big for their britches and they come and go

and shill bidding is like insider trading and should be frowned app on no matter who it is

with that said who on ebay has had a person with 0% feedback who just opened an account that day bid on your item with less than an hour left and they were completely bogus and then you have to have your item tied up for 8 days before you can get your fees back
