Shill bidding, deliberate: The deliberate use of secondary registrations or associates to artificially raise the level of bidding and/or price on an item. -Many multiple bids from one bidder to one seller. -Bidder rarely wins, or the high bidder suddenly does not buy and the second highest bidder is offered the item at that bidder's last bid. -Bidder usually has low feedback compared to bidding level. -Bidder and seller usually (not always) live fairly close to each other. -Bidder usually raises the level of bidding an unusual amount. -If it is an alias, the bidder's information will be falsified. ACTION: First offense: 30 day suspension of primary account and indefinite suspension of all alias registrations. Second offense: Indefinite suspension of primary account.
