View Full Version : Shill bidder on Ebay??

Looks like Bestscuba has himself a shill bidder id he's using.

What an idiot. Not exactly being SUBTLE about it, is he?

Check out zeagleboy's bid history. The only items he has bid on are bestscuba auctions. Damn shill bidder!!
I have reported this jackass to Ebay.

I gave ebay a report also. Looks like he only bids on items by "bestscuba", wouldn't want anything to sell for too little. Stuff like this pisses me off, probably won't do any good (not if the guy was smart setting up the account anyway).

Here is a link to items he has bid on...
Note, they are all items "bestscuba" is selling.

That ****er shill bid on the BC I bought. I still got a Zeagle Ranger for $275, but the shill bid is BS. I have not left feedback yet, I think I will.

I wouldn't bet on it, Rusty. Ebay takes shit like shilling pretty seriously. I wouldn't be surprised if he got banned. The feedback alone is pretty damning.

OK, I'm a tard, Whats shill bidding mean?

Using fake ebay memberships to drive up the bids on stuff you are trying to sell.

Not necessarily fake. Many people will ask friends/family who are valid eBay members to bid on an item, with no intent of finanlizing the transaction.

Ebay faq on shill bidding.
John you should report him to safe harbor. Thats BS
03-19-2003, 06:57 AM
He's already been reported by myself and rusty.
03-20-2003, 09:06 AM
Well, after our reporting on 3/18, zeagleboy made his first bid on something other than a "bestscuba" offering. Duh
03-20-2003, 08:41 PM
Zeagleboy has been suspended, and I posted negative feedback to "bestscuba"

It seems there are ALOT of new bidders on some of these auctions. It might be a good idea to check out the bid history of these dive equip. auctions before placing your own bid.

No one probably would have noticed if bestscuba didn't decide to leave all that feedback for zeagleboy. What's funny is that Ebay only counts feedback from unique users, so zeagleboy's rating was still 1.

What a jackass.. lol..
I should think that boarders on fraud.. criminal charges...
