:lol:
Just a little...
I had a bid on this myself and was hoping his dumbfockery would frighten off other bidders. It did and this morning the bidding was stucjk at £512 despite him bidding again. So he invents another buyer... :roll:

The same dodgy bidder is bidding on his other listing too!

It did occur to me he may have nicked these while someone's on holiday, but tea leafs don't usually use 9 day listings...

But he is a bit special!

really?That would surprise me. Ebay has let this go on for an eternity, when they could easily have put an end to it. Why? Ebay benefits from successful shill bidders. Probably more than they would make if someone placed legitimate reserves. I refuse to use such tactics, but sometimes get burned when I run a straight auction, as ebay give more exposure to many of the shill bidders.

<---- neatly folding my tin foil hat, and placing it on my desk, till tomorrow.
