    The yabemc has been emailed me about 5 days ago warning me about shill bidding (which I didn't even know what that term ment) and I just got another e-mail from him telling me it is illegal. They said they love how there are people with zero feedback bidding on my stuff.
    He is basically accusing me of shill biding. Who s this guy and where does he get off? Sounds a bit like jealousy.

    Mods, I realized my thread title seems a little aggressive, I didn't mean for it to be. I am just trying to fix an issue and if this is a fellow board member, I would like him to pm me. Also, if this is in the wrong place or something, please correct it, that's cool.

    Check his myspace under that name and it will answer your question. Another customizer who is probably jealous of your work.

    yeah, he's been sending me messages as well. such as "all shill bids will be reported" and "I'm coming after all the bad auctions and gonna shut them down"

    I told him, "report me, all my bids are legit" he then went on to how I have a shill bidder (no feedback) but I assured him the guy without feedback's been verified by me personally through paypal and is completely legit.

    I'm debating reporting him, for harassment.

    I think shill bidding's like trying to pump up the auction bids by getting dummy accounts to make higher offers....

    Anyway, seems to me that YABEMC guy's a paranoid, jealous, insecure fella.

    is it is.. didnt know what was the meaning of that but i do have a question ... if someone shill bids doesnt get the chance that i wont sale due to price being too high ? wouldnt a reserve price be preferable ?

    also i seariously doubt that ebay would do much because that means more money in their pocket as well and we all know how greedy ebay has become !

    but yeah i think he,s an insecure a-hole as well

    Absolutely! A reserve would be a better way to go, but it's been researched and people on ebay don't bid as much on reserve auctions.

    The guy's obviously a douchebag, I hope he gets what he deserves...

    Man! I just checked out this jerk's blog... what a complete @$$.

    Matt's Extreme Customs Blog

    His current poll? Who's the biggest shill bidder? Two of his choices are Sabrina Ng and Jin Saotomi. I looked at both of the auctions he mentions and neither of them would be "obvious shill bidding" in my books.

    Read some of the comments on his customs - what an arrogant tool.

    EDIT: His ebay auctions are even worse!!!

    This is the best one out there and will never be matched. I'm sorry for those of you who think my prices are too high. Just because they are not affortable to you, they are to others. If you want top quality, then bid. If you want crap, there's plenty to choose from out there. I thank those who have been lucky enough to own my work. How did they afford my customs you ask? Easy, they have jobs

    What a wingnut! :lol 

    It's probably best to ignore him. His shill bidding claim sounds unsubstantiated so don't worry about eBay taking any action. If he insists on harassing you, encline, you can probably report him to eBay customer service. Speaking of which, his ridiculous auctions appear to have some EXCESSIVE SHIPPING, something worth reporting to eBay. :D

    Wow this guy is pathetic!! I bet that poll which only has 5 votes on it, is himself voting! I wouldn't worry Encline...you have some amazing customs and he is clearly jealous!

    Hahha i did find this funny though, "This is HULKBUSTER done right. Check out Jeta's piece of shit on his myspace and then get back to me."

    He's definitely jealous of others.

    Not the word I'd have chosen.

    'Fuckwit' seems more apt.

    Ebay:
    Please frenzy_rumble, go pick up a couple of the same muggs as he has done and work your magic on them.
    Show this dickstain how a master does it.
    Then sell them for less than his...HEHEHE!
