I sold some pace forks to this guy - within a week they were listed on ebay. This isn't what I am complaining about as I got a good price off him.
I followed the auction with interest as I suspected he was shill bidding on them. I reported him to ebay and they agreed he had been doing so. He appears to have done it on other items he's sold too - check out items he's sold - not an isolated incident. Watch out!

Response from ebay:


Thank you for writing to eBay. I am happy to have this opportunity to
help you regarding your report of a suspected case of Shill Bidding, a
fork (item 270172380508) listed by "audicoupedave".

I understand how important it is for you to have this issue resolved as
you have noticed that "s-works2007" and "freeridepic" have bid on a lot
of items listed by this seller. As you know, we strongly discourage
Shill Bidding on eBay.

Rest assured that I have now investigated this seller with the
information you provided and compare it to our records of bidding
patterns and other activity involving the reported accounts. I can tell
you that we have now removed the listing from the website.

I will also take appropriate action (such as a warning or account
suspension) against the involved accounts to ensure eBay remains a safe
and reputable place to shop.

I know your time is valuable and we appreciate you taking a moment to
express your concern to us. Thank you for using eBay.

Kind regards,

John Brownlow
eBay Trust & Safety
