Something's Fishy on Ebay

May 11th, 2007 at 02:35 pm

I put 2 exercise DVDs up for sale on Ebay this morning and happened to think to check on them around noon today. Imagine my surprise to see that they both had bids on them for over $25 when I had made the starting price $7.50! As I investigated further I see that only 2 people have bid on these DVDs and the same person outbid themselves a couple of times. Both people joined Ebay May 3rd. It just seems fishy to me.

Who in the world would pay over $25 for an exercise DVD??? I will hold back my excitement at making so much money until I find out if it's legit or not.

    the real concern will be when they pay. make sure you send it after you receive payment. I've bought 30 items and have had sellers wait until everything clears...when all is said and done, report any payor that doesnt pay.

    This is probably old news, but I'm just mentioning it in case you're brand-new to ebay. Sometimes it *looks* like the seller went back to outbid themselves, but actually they might have just gone back to put in a higher price to make sure they get the item. So it's very likely legit! Of course, since this was so long ago, you also probably know that, too. :-)

    I like your site -- just found it today and am enjoying looking through it.

    Have a great day!

    Thanks! That very well could be what happened, but so far neither of those bidders has paid. And at least one seller left feedback on the one bidder that they did the same thing to them and never paid. Oh well...
