Beware if some of you are bidding into their auctions.

Very strange seller.
Bids on his own items

I got troubles in the past, by not getting games.

Pffffff

I think i have never seen more clear someone bid on his own items.
Just check bids for his items, almost in all (probably in all, i didnt checked) there is a bidder called o***m, he always stop bids when it reachs the maximum bid of the other person, then not a single other bid.......
Probably the bids from m***x its him too.
Check the bids for any of his items and click on o***m, that person only has placed bid on soukasen3 items in the last 30 days
Im sorry for all the people that got cheated, everyone should report him
Should be easy for ebay to check the IP from all those bidders

It is not possible to see names of bidders. They are all hidden.
Only the feedback you can see, and on hit items there are almost zero-feedbackers.

Ebay does not check on IP-adresses.

And it nowadays is very easy to use proxies to obscure one's identity.

I bought 2 games once. I received the items within 1 week. (Fray and Super Tritorn) . Both items were in very good condition. That's the good news....The bad news is that I think the bidding was not fair. The same trick as mentioned above. One bidder (the same for both games)gives exactlty my maximum amount and then stops. In the end I got the games for a reasonable price but the bidding process seems staged.

Its true, u cant see the name of the bidders, but u still see something like m***x for each bid of the same user
And ebay only checks IP adresses if they think there is something tricky

I'd guess it's just an attempt of the seller to get you to pay a maximum you're willing to pay, vs. a minimum that you need to win the auction. Such a seller is an asshole, and a dumbass too: if he's not willing to let go of items for cheap, he should just set a proper minimum bid (and perhaps re-auction items if no-one bids that minimum).

If you're confident it's the seller itself bidding, I'd just ignore it: let him/her overbid you. If you were the only other bidder, you'll either win without raising your maximum, or seller would have to auction the item again to get rid of it. No point to engage in a bidding war with the seller.
