Could also be the seller himself driving up a price w/ artificial ebay accounts to generate interest on the auction. Then he sells to himself, bumps his feedback, and turns them back around again on the bay.

That's gonna be some hefty final value fees for him if he is the one driving up the price and then wins them.

Given that the current top two bidders have histories that show bidding only on these pair of shoes, there's a good chance that they are, in fact, shill accounts, which is too bad because this seller puts a lot of Aldens up on ebay from time to time.

eBay Final value fees are close to 10% of the buyer price ... I'm not sure if its to the seller's interest to gamble $100 of his money per listing

Could be an international bidder who has to pay high tariffs for Aldens in their country.

You don't have to pay a final value fee if the winning bidder doesn't pay. Still a stupid idea, though, if he is shilling, because he is sure to trigger a look at the shill account if he files a non-paying-bidder report.

Of course, if he's shilling and he's smart, he'll send a second chance offer to the second highest bidder, assuming that one is legit.

Hey guys,

Just as an FYI. I just listed my Leffot Cigar Indy boots. I had they up for sale/trade before but I took closed the posting early b/c love the boots. Relisted b/c I really need a 1/2 size larger.

Seriously doubt even the second bidder would be legit in order for the price to get to $900 ... I'd say it is two shill accounts and either the shills are just f*kn with the seller, or the seller is retarded.

Now that I look at the bid history, there are apparently three shill bidders in action.

The juice is actually INSIDE the wheatgrass.  FYI.

I'm sure that there must be a wheatgrass thread somewhere on this forum...

Is there a difference between a Kiwi brush ($6-9) and a higher quality brush ($15-20)? Getting a brush off some sites add up to $30 with shipping, while I can get a kiwi for like $6 with amazon prime.
