Question Dogging Ebay Auctions?

When I bid for 14 Amiga Games then it seem like someone who is Ebay sniper knowing how much bidding I put in the end.

Click image to zoom it



Does this sound dogging ebay auctions?

Could be a bot setup to auto-bid near the end of the auction.

I bet there is a a threshhold that the bidder setup to do this so they could indeed try to snipe it from you.

Then get it and resell for the new inflated pricing

this is what I have won on



I seem think they worth about £70 to £80

So I don't know why someone bid £125 for it as you possible might be right that is bot setup to auto bit end of the auctions!

I think I would sell Worm and WWF as not fan of them but possible one of team 17 games if I already got them!

Dogging? Your definition of that word is obviously different to mine.

Send a message via ICQ to lilalurl
I can edit the thread title to correct it. But that might remove part of the uniqueness of the thread.

Your call AF2013.

You put in a max bid, say 100 and if the bid is currently 10 something like 11 will be bid for you. If someone bids over you, you automatically bid again slightly over the previous bidder. Until your max bid is reached.

Something like that.

That is how ebay works for quite some time. One of main reason I don't bid or use ebay at all...

I do the same. Sadly many "buy now" prices on retro stuff are stupid prices.

So sadly, if I'm going to bid on something, I'll ONLY bid on it at the last minute. I wont even show my hand before that.

Unless I'm drunk. Went home from party once thinking "crap! If I win that one, the wife is going to KILL me" lol.
