these users join ON THE DAY OF THE AUCTION appearantly then increase their bid to ridiculous proportions! im a bidder and i want to buy the item at the least amount possible. we're not idiots and bid or buy should find a way to stop this somehow. i suggest removing the auromatic bid limit. would make things a lot more interesting. And when these users who bid large amounts dont pay they dont get negative ratings the items are just relisted. suspicious enough???

Hi kaeious,

 

Shill bidding is monitored on a daily basis and if found, the necessary action is taken. There is only one bidder that joined today, of all the bidders you posted, and is not connected to the seller.

 

Please report your suspicions as I mentioned in your other post. Putting user names on the forum in connection with shill bidding, leaves you open to legal action from that person should it not be true, as in this case.

 

Thank you.

automatic... i feel like an ass though but the fact that only one person joined on the day is NOT the point. the point is people with these elusive profiles that have made 0 purchase on their 3 or 4months crop up to make high bids then suddenly disappear and dont buy the products but the sellers do nothing...

It is typical shillbidding behaviour - but not all of them are in fact shillbidders. Worth keeping an eye on it though!

Good evening Kaeious, I totally understand that YOU would like to buy the items

at the LOWEST prices, buy I think we should just stay realistic and

Realize that the sellers DO NOT SPEND their time working

Against losses JUST to get buyers unrealistic low prices, but the sellers are in it to ACTUALY make money as this is their income.......
