Why bid against yourself??

Post by LauraA » 2 weeks ago

What is with these people who bid against themselves? I don't mean a one-time, frantic, heat of the moment, beat someone to the button, last minute bid; I mean people who bid up the price against themselves early on in the bidding. I don't want to offend anyone here, but I keep seeing one person in particular--"Melissa"--regularly bids up the price early on, inflating the price on many things much more than necessary. And more than once I've seen the items resurface in a later auction, so I don't think she buys all she bids on (which is a LOT). It's so frustrating to those of us who'd really like to bid seriously.

That's the million dollar question that no one has been able to answer. It's an enduring mystery.
