Shill bidding at its best
So I am sure I can't post the eBay member name or anything like that but I contacted a guy who listed quite a few things. With that said one of the items I was watching and I noticed how quickly the item jumped so I decided to look at who was winning it was a guy with a 24 feedback who had only bid on 9 items for the month and all 9 were that sellers. So I sent him a message and he denied that he dose that and he has repeat customers. Now I would believe this but this guy had left 2 feedbacks already for the seller and he left 2 feedbacks to the buyer and all 4 were the exact same feedbacks. So he listed a bunch of things starting at 99 cents and I bid on around 15 of his items at $1.00 each know I would probably be out bid on most of them. Well maybe an hour before the auctions were ending I get 4 canceled bids that I would of won and I look at the suspect buyer and he went from 9 bids to 19 bids all on the sellers cards. I have contacted eBay already but I wanted to share this info and I am willing to give the name for people to avoid if you want it through PM.

Actually, most people freely post the IDs of suspected shillers on here, LOL ... the best ones are when the accused shiller comes on to defend his/her self, then a true battle royale breaks out. Usually ends in someone getting banned for a period of time.

I mentioned that to him saying there are a lot of rare cards that get listed on eBay everyday and for someone to just bid on your cards is questionable. He claims innocents but I can't see how. As a matter of fact I am thinking about just buying a card for cheap just to leave a bad feedback about shill bidding.
