There were total 14 bidders on this item.!!
I bidded on Jan 6 @ 23:19 for $311.
3**u(345) bidded on Jan 7 @ 08:11 for $316. (at this point I was not winner)
u***n(0) bidded on Jan 7 @ 10:53 for $999.
Now if you see both of them retract their bid and I was winner.!!
u**n(0) bid was cancelled by SELLER on Jan 10 @ 3:39 (after 3 days.!!)
3***u(345) retract on Jan 10 @ 6:35 ( why this bidder also retracted ?)
So again I was winner for next 18 hours.!! To me both bidders were FAKE bidders which were nothing but trying to increase price and helping seller.!! (We need to also look in to this as what are chance of SHILL bidding)
Bidding ended on Jan 10 @ 22:38
To me it was nothing but trying to increase price!! No one is going to pay more $50 for this stamp.!! All other bidders are also trying to increase price without intention to actual intense to buy it.
Did you notice HOW I WAS CHEATED.!!! ( after 12 days I got message about paymnent but I emailed buyer about this Cheating .!!)
So what are chance of SHILL bidding in this transaction ?
Only God knows about it or SELLER knows about it as it will be very hard to nail it down unless seller do some mistake!!
