More Shills
I just reported this guy.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/1997-Z-FORCE-BIG...506wt_1180

It is so blatant, I wish Ebay actually cared.
Are we really supposed to believe the guy needed a hydraulic pump to go along with the basketball card he won?

RE: More Shills
Sorry, took me a minute to realize what was going on. Once I figured out the immediate relist of the item after a "winning bid" I caught it. Nice catch on your part, and yes definitely very blatant.

For those of you who are going to question this, what the OP is showing us is that the seller auctioned the card and it ended this morning. There was a bidder that jumped in at the last minute and won the item with a couple late bids. This winning bidder shows a history of only bidding on this seller's items for the past 30 days. The seller then relisted the card with a BIN price almost immediately after the auction ended at roughly 3 times what the auction ended for, a clear sign that the seller didn't get close to what he hoped with the auction and had another account bid it up late in order to either reach his expected price or take the win and protect the item. This is the clear definition of a shill bidder.

RE: More Shills
Yes, I let him know that he had been reported. He said "What are you talking about?"

I responded with this "Don't play dumb, it insults my intelligence. I'm really sure this guy needed a new hydraulic pump to go along with his basketball cards."

After which he did not respond.

Good. I'm glad you said something. He needs to know people are on to his game.

RE: More Shills
Another winner.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...500wt_1413

That is the first sale. Then he relisted it. The winning bidder from the first time around bid in the last seconds of this auction and raised the price nearly $400. The sad thing is he did not win it this time and some poor soul got taken.

RE: More Shills
this type of stuff is ruining the hobby, there are theories and some proof that people have been doing this to the jordan card market and driving prices up to unrealistic highs, which makes it hard for average jordan collectors like me to be able to pick up stuff for my pc.

And he did not even change the picture, which has a date on it.
