Default Lousy non-paying bidder shills on high end Football (eBay)

This is just a rant but I had a Bart Starr PMG Green on eBay ending today and at the last minute, two bidders with "private" ratings bid $444.00 and $449.00. The previous legit bid was under $100.

I'm going to repost immediately with a BIN instead but this is probably the 4th high end football card in a row that has gotten bid up by non paying bidders. I just don't get it!

Same thing happened to me with a Brady SPA 9.5, was pretty annoying. I really wonder what the purpose of it is? My only thought is that the person has the same card, and wants to but up the market price?

Edit: *bump up the market price, not but

There should be a rule.You have 5 days to pay and after the fifth day it will automatically get withdrawn out of there account.So tired of deadbeat buyers who think Im a credit card they can ride.

I guess it makes sense, ebay should make it harder to create accounts, maybe tie each one to a SS # or something.

Tie it to a bank account that gets withdrawn after the NPB is filed

Tie it to PayPal, which every eBayer should have. Funds are automatically taken after 5 days if payment was not already sent. The more I sell on eBay the more I don't want to. I had 5 cards sell last week that only got paid for because I opened a case, then all but 1 paid within 24 hours. I pay 99% of the auctions I win within 48 hours. I want the cards I bought! I just don't get it.

As far as buying goes don't let sellers "Mark As Shipped" if they do not have tracking. Bought a Hobby Box 3-4 weeks ago that the seller claims he shipped and it never arrived. I got a refund but he claims it should be here any day and asked that I return it...I'm not stupid, it doesn't take 3 weeks to send a box of cards anywhere in the US, much less from 4 hours away.
