Re: Item number 3485364

Yah there is a clear problem with that item. Maybe someone tried to either drop the price too low and it defaulted to the 'start price', or, they meant to make it a clearance item at $6.99...

Re: Items sold out then in $1 auction? Suspicious.

Sometimes people win auctions then fail to pay for the items. (They will show as 'expired' in your auction history) Same thing happens in other areas. The items can also be returns.

Re: Be an informed bidder

CHECK THE BID HISTORY BEFORE YOU PURCHASE AN AUCTION ITEM. I HAVE WON SEVERAL ITEMS AND WHEN I CHECKED, THE PRICE HAD BEEN JACKED UP AT THE LAST MINUTE WITH 16 BIDS HAPPENING IN THE SPAN OF A HALF-SECOND. THIS IS NOT HUMANLY POSSIBLE. HAS TO BE COMPUTER GENERATED AUTO BIDDING. DON'T BE FOOLED. ALWA...

Re: Be an informed bidder

No debate about it; There are a few bidders that are questionable. No names needed, we all see them. Usually on "premium" items. The bid starts at $1, then here's this 'person' or robot that puts a bid in at $100.00~200.00! How about letting the auction do it's thing and take actual bids. Are the r...
