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.
