I seem to remember both JuveFC and myself have posted threads in the past concerning the same practice. It was also in my watching page as the last Dunn went for 101.99 and was hoping this one would be below the 100 (Perhaps in my dreams). I have been the leading bidder in another auction(Not for a vast amount I hasten to add) and had the rug pulled from under my feet. When I searched the bid history on the auction I was bidding for, it just showed that all the bids were cancelled and no reason for it ending early (It's really gutting). I know the seller has to give a reason ie Item no longer for sale, Item damaged etc but I don't think that bidders are privvy to that information. I think that ebay stipulates that you can only do this "Ending a Listing early" a certain number of times. Perhaps its another of the ebay rules that are not monitored closly enough. Trouble is far too many greedy sellers list an item at 99p so that they don't pay ebay fees and then expect buyers to pay a kings ransom for it and pull the item if the price they want is not being realised. If only they would list it at a realisic price pay the fees and let the auction run it's full course and hopefully we would all be happy. Do I think this will happen, sadly not !!! So are we going back to the schoolday practice of dobbing them in?

Although it sounds fun to play him at his own game by making inflated bids and then retracting them, here is a copy of the ebay rules regarding bid retraction which on reading might make you think again about taking such action, which is a shame.

Reasons for retracting a bid
There are only 3 reasons for retracting a bid and every bid on eBay is binding, unless the:

Item is listed in a category under the Non-binding bid policy

Transaction is prohibited by law or by eBay's User Agreement

If you want to withdraw your bid for any other reason (eg a family member placed the bid using your account or you simply changed your mind), you'll need to contact the seller to explain what happened. The seller will decide whether to cancel your bid.

If your bid isn't cancelled and you subsequently win the item but don't pay for it, the seller may file an unpaid item case against you.

If you need to cancel a bid quickly because it was placed by someone else using your password without authorisation, choose 'Entered wrong amount' as your retraction reason and then contact us about the account theft so that we can investigate.

Perhaps a more appropriate action would be for those members who were watching said items with a view of possibly bidding to contact ebay by their email system and write their concerns regarding this member and his selling practices.

This joker of an ebay seller has done it yet again :rant

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=220730970890

Somebody had a bid of 100.31 (Not me I hasten to add) and the listing has had all the bids cancelled. It still baffles me how he is getting away with this c:omp
