, and anyone who'd buy ANY stamp from a snake oil salesman huckster from ARGENTINA like this, with PRIVATE FEEDBACK (i.e. you cannot see all his shill bids) deserves to end up with regums.
Gotta love those apparant ebay "bargains".
Private bidders, so sent this:
Private bidding is a breeding ground for shill bidding. There is absolutely no valid reason to make bidder's ID's private, EBay does that already.
I won't be bidding further on this item, or on anything else where bidder's ID's are hidden.
I am not suggesting that you are engaging in anything untoward, but hiding buyer's ID's is a real alarm bell. Perhaps you may think about this, and change your mind. Without even the scrambled ID, there is no way to see if it is the same people pushing the price up.
Got this in reply:
hello, it is not exactly as you think, if it is not private does not appear the nick name but appears the amount of the transaction and with that i lost some clients in the past, there are a lot didders and dealers looking for this kind of information for stealing clients. just think...why is there on ebay the private treaty if you can not see the bidders? it is simple i do not cheat so if you want to you can bid or buy items and then you can inform ebay you suspect there is something wrong, then they will open an investigation. the result will be ok, as i have nothing to hide.
thank you and please be free to email me if you have questions.
I did notice the gum, and altered my maximum bid accordingly.
