Default Fleabay, shills, computer geeks.

Started this cause this is the buy, sell, trade section..........

I dont have that much experience with fleabay. I started my first account in 1999. I sold computer gear, new and used from the egghead.com *****ter. As the title says I wonder how many auctions are shilled by people or if that is too much trouble. It seems that if someone wanted to push a price up it would be easy to get an associate to help out.

I could help you, if you explain what you mean. Do you want me to bump your prices?

Its against eBays rules, but it happens. It depends on the item though - its often not useful to shill bid on any item worth buying. One tenant of eBay is that anything worth winning is usually won in the last minute. Either someone manually waiting till the last few seconds, or an automated auction "sniper" will bid the last bid. There's rarely a reason to bid earlier either because that just gives others the chance to outbid you, and you have to bid again and higher.

So therefore, on those auction the only way to shill the auction is to bid in the very last few second to try to bump up the very last bidders price. That means you have to be dead right as to what they bid. Bid too high and you'll end up winning it and you won't have time to fix it.

So in the long run, shill bidding isn't really all that advantageous. It does happen, and there are some times when its very obvious a seller is doing it, but IMO its really not that common because its not too useful.

Potatoe I appreciate the offer, what I'm asking about is this. I'm usakicksass, if my name is abbreviated for security its the one that last bid at $160.00

http://offer.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.d...m=180256686031

As you can see I've bid over my self imposed limit. So I'm out. I was just wondering how many ebayers never sell anything but buy many things withing a 30 day period. Check it out I'm not sure if I'm reading the bidder history right.
I'm curious as to what my ebay name bidder abbreviation is from another user/ computer.
