Like everyone else – I wanted to order functional hood scoop bezels so ambled over to Ebay to get some. Started bidding – kept getting outbid even when the item I was bidding on in the 30.00 plus range had an IDENTICAL item unbid upon in the NEXT listing. Got suspicious – pulled details on ALL of the deals by the most popular seller – and found problems. Four bidders were consistently jumping in at the 15.00 level – bidding to 40.00 – 45.00 then dropping out. Over and over – the same pattern showed up.
ALL THE TIME THE SAME IDENTICAL BEZELS WERE LISTED WITH NO BIDS!!!!

I informed both the seller and made a complaint to Ebay which is under investigation. However – jumped on this morning and found this

Pattern continues on items #360207802038 / 390119015695 /360208255464 / 390119006114
All bidding activity from the four apparently bogus bidders between $15.00 - $45.00 – then drop

First bid item # 360209344008 – no activity

Items # 360209633351 / 360209601376 / 390120758592 / 360208951361 / 360208180102 / 390119094397 /360208272065 / 360208358069 / 360208301359
IDENTICAL ITEMS TO ABOVES – WITH NO BIDS YET!!

WHY would four bidders jump IN at 15.00 when there are NINE sets with starting bid of 0.01 CENTS - AND if you can bid at 0.01 - WHY are they jumping in at over 30.00 in some c ases??
AND if they are REAL buyers – WHY DON”T THEY BUY ONE OF THE MULTIPLES THEY HAVE BID ON???

I will tell YOU when Ebay tells ME!!!

eBay Bid Cancellation Notice - Item
Dear eBay Community Member,
The bid that you entered for the item (390119542115) has been cancelled. You can view the reason provided for the cancellation by selecting the (bid history) link from the individual item page

Seems the buyer does not wish to sell to me - funny - besides his apparantly theiving companions - I thought we were dishing together swimmingly !!!!!!!!!

I'm not saying he wasn't using other IDs or friends to drive up the prices, since I have seen that before too, but to answer one question, they may not be bidding on the .01 items if the auction end time is farther away than the ones they are bidding on. I've done that before.... bid on one that is ending sooner even if my bid is higher.

nope - four of the unbids were within 24 hours of the bidded ones AND they have bid on multiples across a span of weeks

Kicker is it LOOKS like the same ISP for both the SELLER and the four alleged BUYERS
-- looking into this further :police:

I bit the bullet and ordered mine through the dealership. $80 for both and they were in a genuine Mopar package.
