Default Ebay seller joins the darkside!

This seller just sold this same card Dec 9 and if u look they rec'd positive feedback for it:

current listing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/1919-W514-SHOELE...item3a61881589

Problem is - this seller is now re-selling the exact same card - 2 weeks later. Normally u'd think oh may be a deadbeat bidder. Well the buyer left positive feedback, so that wasn't the case. Then if u look at the buyer they are from the same place as the seller. Thus a friend or a 2nd account did the bidding on the item to get a feel for what it would sell for. BUSTED!

previous listing:

I guess there is only one word to describe this dilemma.......WOW!!!!! Probably a bad idea to have your 2nd account leaving you positive feedback.

Unless he just changed the BIN price, it doesnt make sense.

He has a BIN of $2 more than the high bid, so he wouldnt profit more than 1-2 bids worth of $$.

My guess is that he had a friend make an unrealistically high bid in order to see how much the card would bring and then set the buy it now accordingly.

I've had non paying bidders leave me positive feedback - in hopes I won't file a claim. Maybe he was just relisting near the same price.. Or maybe not...

Since it is the holiday season, I will propose that the original buyer suffered from a bit of buyer's remorse and asked the seller to relist the card. Now, if you will excuse me, I will go back to singing Christmas carols and building toys in my workshop. =)

Since we dont know exactly what is going on, we should avoid condemnation. As was said in the LAST MOHICAN, "they stay as they lay".
