    I don't get the stink about shill bidders. If you don't want to pay a higher price, don't bid. I agree that it's shady, but illegal? I don't see how... People will only pay what they are willing to spend. If it's just enough to win over another bidder, who cares if it's a legit person or something else? It very well could have been another interested party.


    And to clarify, I have never nor will ever do it. I'm just stating my opinion.

    I agree with u some what.

    But when it comes down to certain things.
    For example sports cards. If your bidding on a card and its very limited and your only bidding against the owner of the card not other collectors........ Thats just wrong.......

    I am reminded of a quote by George Carlin. "Selling is legal. Fucking is legal. But selling fucking is illegal!"
