Default Bid Retractions

Nothing suspicious here - 26 bid retractions within 6 months and total feedback of less than 100. His bid retraction rate is over 30% of his feedback score?!

How does this happen? Do any of you have more than 1 bid retraction .. if that?? I can understand 100% bid activity with one seller if they are a favorite, done business before, they have what you're looking for on straight auction (vs. everyone else at museum pricing BIN), etc. - but can't wrap my head around this crap.

The next highest bidder has 8 retractions. Legitimate ebayers don't have 8 bid retractions let alone 26. I guess they can't figure out how to bid?

According to their rules, and if they adhere to them, the bidder with 26 bid retractions should now be banned or stopped from bidding further, shouldn't he?

I just emailed Brent about it but I didn't email their special email for these. Yes., this bidder should be ousted and banned. And if it were me so would the second bidder with 8 retractions...

Good! I guess we'll now see if the rule is active and adhered too?

Thanks Leon.

Thanks Leon.
If it is adhered to it will only be for this one bidder and because Leon emailed them and posted he did on this forum.

Otherwise it will be business as usual.

I thought that too, but thought, just maybe, if Brent knows that collectors are watching a little more thoroughly now, he may also, to save face, have to do the same?

I recently emailed them about a bid retractor on a big card and their reply was essentially "yes, this is someone who has been warned before" and that "their retractions have gone down, so they are likely learning their lesson".

At that point of contact I believe they had 11 retractions, which I believe still would constitute them not being allowed to bid, so I am unsure at what point this person wasn't blocked, and likely doing absolutely nothing about it.

I see a number of people with very low feedback bidding on advanced collector type cards and I can't help but wonder if these are just the same people with new accounts.
