Hello,

Does anyone have done business with this profile on eBay? Bob4979
SNIP

The same pattern repeats over and over: some guys make the prices increase then the winner cancels his purchase and the 2nd place of the auction (me in this case) ends up with a proposal to buy the item at the price the winner artificially made go high.

Now maybe I am just being paranoid but when it happened more than one time with the same profiles over a week, it's suspicious.

Thanks in advance

I'm afraid we are not an eBay complaints department. The practice you refer to is called shill bidding. You may want to check eBay's T&Cs and take appropriate action over there.
