Shill Bots on eBay?
So I got outbid on a still active auction by this "guy"[Image: s.gif]
30-Day Summary
Total bids:
[Image: s.gif]26
Items bid on:
[Image: s.gif]15
Bid activity (%) with this seller:
[Image: s.gif]19%
Bid retractions:
[Image: s.gif]2
Bid retractions (6 months):
[Image: s.gif]25




So I checked Seller's other ongoing auctions and among other oddities found this:
30-Day Summary
Total bids:
[Image: s.gif]12
Items bid on:

Bid activity (%) with this seller:

Bid retractions:
[Image: s.gif]0
Bid retractions (6 months):
[Image: s.gif]44

RE: Shill Bots on eBay?
Another guy outbid the suspected shill up to 21.50 including shipping, & Amazon has it for $21.81, so no sense pursuing.

eBay apparently doesn't monitor or doesn't care about bloated bid retraction counts, since driving up prices also increases eBay's % cut.

Anyway, apparently its EZ to re-register as a seller under a different ID.
