Default Shill bids on ebay

Posted By: Fred C

I predict the following auction will be bid on by DRAGGER929 or another shill bidder:

http://cgi.ebay.com/PRE-1900-1887-OLD-JUDGE-BASEBALL-CARD_W0QQitemZ250218615589QQihZ015QQcategoryZ86837 QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

The seller sold two OJs in a past auction:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=86837&item=250209694921

Now he's selling one of the cards from that auction in the first auction I have posted above. This guy is an a$$hole. Look who won that auction: DRAGGER929.

He recently screwed a board member on an OJ:

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=86837&item=250215324475

Guess who the under bidder in that auction was? DRAGGER929, the winner of the (2) OJs in the second auction I have listed.

This guy is a real winner and probably thinks everyone is pretty stupid.

Looks like he shilled, then sent the card(s) in to get graded then relisted.

He also shilled on a bunch of toy cars too.

30-Day Summary
Total bids: 89
Items bid on: 23
Bid activity (%) with this seller: 100%
Bid retractions: 0
Bid retractions (6 months): 0


Does this mean in the last 30 days this bidder has only been
involved in auctions with the one seller in question?

The subterfuge didn't last long.

Hey Fred,

Yeah, this guy is a real piece of work. I know he has contacted several of us trying to hype his cards currently on eBay. I've also reported him for blatant shill bidding. Of course, with eBay's lack of customer service, I wonder if anything will happen. I just received an automated reply saying they would look into it but I would not receive any further update from them - you gotta love it.

here is the response from ebay.
Dear Dennis,

Thank you for writing eBay in regard to your report of Shill Bidding for
item number

We're always concerned about possible policy violations on eBay sites
and appreciate your report regarding phillyconection1 and dragger929. We
thoroughly investigated your report, but at this time there isn't enough

Out of concern for our members privacy, we can't discuss our
investigation with other members. I hope that this assures you that your
account history will likewise remain private.

If you need further assistance, please don't hesitate to reply to this

Sincerely,
Penelope C.

I hope Penelope takes care of this one.

Fred, this guy e-mailed me saying "cmonow" (sp) had offered him 550 for the card. He told me to top the offer. I told him to go pound sand. I don't think he will last long. Wonder if anyone ever got the Mathews card?

You can't sneak stuff by Ebay...unless you do it in plain sight that is. Of the 23 items dragger929 has bid on in the last month, 22 were from phillyconnection. Including TV's, toy trucks, and baseball cards.

I am Cmonnow. Yes, I did talk to him, yes he did offer up the card, no I didn't buy it (obviously). I started to check out his auctions because he sounded a bit shady. I told him he should probably get the cards graded. Apparently he has. He sent me another email offering them up and I've pretty much ignored the email. I'd almost be afraid of receiving an empty box.

Funny thing I wrote him (seller) and ripped into him fairly good calling him a few choice names etc. and he replied asking me to make an offer on the cards telling me that a bunch of collectors are wanting to buy the card and I can top the offers. I wasnt even interested in the cards

PS I just wrote eBay and reported the shill with a ton of evidence, hopefully it will get something done.

I let everyone know about the shilling through a negative feedback. Hopefully something can be done about this clown.
