Hey everyone, I know some of you have bought stuff on ebay. I’m wondering if you have ever seen anything like this. I placed a bid on this pair of skates w/ about 20 minutes to go, no one else had bid yet. Starting price $149 I put a max bid of $200. Then out of nowhere this guy puts a higher bid on it. I ended up outbidding him w/ a $230 max bid, got them for $227. But the other bidder has been a member since june 25th 2004, and has never bought or sold anything that whole time. Both the seller and the other bidder live in Canada as well.
Does anyone else think this is sort of fishy or is it just me? I emailed ebay to see if they’ll look into it for me, but what do you all think about this?
