Thread: Another shill bidding scum Ebay seller to avoid

    Another shill bidding scum Ebay seller to avoid

    scdixon0

    He has an Absolute Aaron Curry RPM Reebok Patch #4/5.

    I came across him because I have the same card #2/5 and wanted to see if there any more on Ebay.

    Well his sold for $44 and change and when I looked into the "winning" bidder I see he has 17 bids in the last month all with the seller. Winning bidder is huntingfish1959 and he left feedback for receipt of card along with 2 other cards

    So then why is the card, as well as the other 2 cards huntingfish1959 won for sale again by original buyer?? Obviously because he is a scumbag.

    The current hi bidder has 0 feedback and has bid on 16 items from the seller in the last 30 days (100% of his bids)

    Current 0 FB bidder is high bidder on at least 7 of this jerk's auctions and all 99 bids placed in the last 30 days have been with this seller.

    So if you know af anyone bidding on his items let them know.

    Looks like shilling to me......I reported a seller...he had several bidders with zero feedback.....Even when their won....no feedback between them.....eBay did nothing...a few years ago....saw one of feedback from one of his auctions.....and the buyer figured out he was using shillers!!

    Yeah, eBay will jump right on that...Not! They get a bigger cut if he shills his price up.

    He loses money by paying the Ebay fees everytime, right? So, how is he making money, in the big picture, by doing that over and over again?

    My assumption is whatever money he makes by driving up the price of his auctions is greater than the eBay fees he pays when his shills win. Keep in mind that in any auction, the price is set by the highest losing bid.
