That was some amateur shill crap for sure. Can't wait till eBay asks for their cut...


I just sold something for $1800 and eBay took $168 so the bill for this "transaction" will be over $800. Nice job jjdu1977...

Yes and now the seller will either have to pay the bill to eBay or report his friend as a non-paying bidder which will result in a strike that can result in a ban from using the site.

Strange one this as why would you shill bid your own item for so much more then you could ever expect to get? The seller can't have thought it was worth that, could they?

Other option is that a daft shill bid was put in and a legit buyer came in with an offer they thought would defo win but didn't expect to pay anywhere near.

Either way, that's a huge price for a sh*te bike. :facepalm:

You may be exactly right, A buddy of mine was in the habit of placing outrageous bids on items under the theory that most other bidders will be more conservative. It worked for him until it didn't. He ran into another bidder playing the same game and won a simple Shimano hub for something in the range of $1500. Luckily the seller was understanding...
