Does this look like shill bidding to you?

  1. Hi! We are running a fun little TPF community giveaway to win a new Polene bag! Head over to this thread to enter. Good luck!

  1. What do you think?

  2. Why do you suspect shill bidding? Is it because all the bidders are 0 feedback buyers? That happened to me recently (my item was ultimately won by a 0 feedback buyer). Although buyers with feedback did ultimately bid, they hung around and bid much later in the auction. So maybe this is a similar situation - less experienced buyers bidding earlier? Was that why you were suspicious or did I miss something important?
     
  3. No, you were correct. The bunch of 0 fb bidders was what made me suspicious. I guess I'm really not that familiar with shill bidding.
     
  4. It looks like they were trying to reach a reserve. I would have to know more about the auction and if the buyer just signed up recently.
     
  5. The auction is over, and I didn't win anyway. Oh well.
