Hmmm....if they're doing "their own" bidding to "bid it up", don't they realize that they'll still have to pay the ebay fee when it "sells"?  I guess it's wishful thinking that someone else will bid high on it.

Worse still, they could lose their ebay account if reported and ebay confirms it to be themselves or friends/family doing the shill bidding...

I bet you 1x Isle of Man 50p coin that it's relisted... ;D







(And I'm only betting that coin cos the darned self-service tills at Tesco won't accept it!!)

I wonder if anyone reported that auction to eBay? I guess there is no way of knowing either way. Highly suspicious with two (0) feedback buyers going at it. Certainly walks like a duck, . . .

Anyone think 6***m ( 0 ) will get feedback for this purchase?

They are showing that it has been discontinued.

Definitely looks suspicious to me.

I checked the Cortelco website a couple years ago, and it was listed as still being built. I checked a year later, and it was discontinued.

Let me see if I have one first before I bet.
(It is entirely possible, I've been there twice in the 70's and I still have a box of left over coins from various travels around the world. Many of them now only worth their scrap metal value.)

It could be someone with too much money paying way too much for a phone.  Zero feedback does indicate a newbie!

I think they are called "millennials" Lots of them up and coming of age to spend the money.
