ALso, an interesting starting price of £7.86!
Ebay don't seem concerned about him ...
Thank you for contacting us reporting seller "gulrays". I understand your quite suspicious since they received 5 feedback from 5 buyers who bought the same items from them and it was a phone that was sold hence the bids went up.
I also understand you feel that they are doing this fraudulently and they should be suspended on our site.
We take Shill Bidding very seriously and we investigated your report immediately.
When we investigate a case of Shill Bidding, we look at the information you provided and compare it to our records of bidding patterns.
Sometimes, what appears to be Shill Bidding may actually be legitimate bidding and, if we find there's not enough evidence of Shill Bidding, which is the case here, we do not take action against any of the reported accounts.
In many cases Steve, a bidder enters a maximum amount for a bid and the system then bids for them until their maximum is reached. If you see that you are automatically been outbid, this is usually the reason: the system is bidding for the other member.
Once again, thanks for taking the time to forward this information to us. We rely on dedicated members such as yourself to help us keep eBay a safe and reputable place to buy and sell.
eBay Trust & Safety
My nephew bought an IPhone off ebay last year, and it turned out it was jailbroken and then he bricked it. The only reason he found out was that he took it into a shop to fix it and then told him why it had happened. He was lucky as he managed to get his money back from the seller, but as he didn't really understand all the terms I can see it was quite easy to get something you weren't expecting. He bought it with both my dad and sister looking at the phone, but none of them understood enough to know exactly what they were getting.
So basically as long as the seller coughs up their ebay fees - they don't care?
