    Hi all. In ebay i know you can see a buyers feedback and then view the items he has won (if he received feedback).

    Is there a way to query every item won (regardless if feedback left)? Or a way to tell what auctions that user has bid on?

    I smell some obvious shillings and want to see what else he has been bidding on or winning?

    THanks

    Go to search.ebay.com
    Select "Items by Bidder"
    Check the box next to "Include completed listings"
    Enter the user's name and then hit Search.

    Despite appearances, as of recent you can no longer view items a bidder is currently bidding on. Thanks eBay.

    Toolhaus.org is also a good site to check feedbacks between two users if you suspect them doing shill bidding.

    Keep in mind that smart sellers doesn't really do those "easy to get caught" 1 on 1 shill. It could well be a group of 5-6 sellers who's bidding on each other's items. You won't see low feedback bidders in this case, and it's extreme hard to catch the bidding patterns.(Even harder with this new stupid ebay policy)

    I really hope ebay is opening up the door for other auction companies.

    Are they saying second chance offers (my understanding is the changes made were to avoid these offers?) are worse on ebay than shill bidding?

    If you are an ebay user and are not informed enough to avoid second chance offers or paying with western union (or any of the other shady things) than that is a you problem...

    Although it makes sense...Second chance offers may take money away from ebay (if the offer is outside of ebaY) and shill bidding makes money for ebay..Why wouldnt they lean that way.

    2nd chance offers are normally a crock of shit especially if the seller sends it to you the day the auction has ended, the non payment procedure takes up to 7 days to complete so you shouldnt get a 2nd chance for at least 3 - 5 days.

    You can send second chances if you, as a seller have more than one of the same item. If I have multiple I will often offer my 2nd highest bidder a chance to have a copy at what he bid. I actually did that when I sold my botcon attendee stuff.
