Quote from: oldguy on October 10, 2018, 08:33:17 AMThanks Doug, I was the 1st bidder & bid $120, hoping to get the phone at closer to the opening price of $69 but somebody bid me through the roof. Could it have been a tactic of the seller? Having somebody bid it up? The bidding seems weird to me.
Quote from: FABphones on October 10, 2018, 09:23:16 AMHmmm... I took a look at the bidding, that comes across as very odd to me too. Pushing it up so many times by just $2 on each bid. Maybe so they could retract their 'last bid' yet stay close to your top bid if/when theirs went higher than yours). Is there any way to nicely question it via eBay? Maybe a quick chat with them? They might be able to see how closely (in distance or otherwise) the other bidder info resembles the seller info. They won't (and shouldn't) release any of the other bidder info, but they will be able to see if the other bidder lives in the same town as the seller, and how recent their eBay Account is.
