    Not so sure about that alloway.

    Some members came out of the blue and confessed to having more than one. Perhaps they have all started a twelve step program(??)

    Step 1 .. admit you are in possession of a split personality.
    Items I have for sale.

    Why do today what you can put off till next year?

    I could not agree more.

    The "hardest" part was to get verified first (which I should have done four years ago in any case). One form to fill in and two faxes to send.
    Philately starts where the catalogue stops.
    Items I have for sale.

    Sorry for being the one to point out the obvious here but what would be the purpose of buying your own stuff? Can only be a loss.

    I imagine some people would not want some stuff linked to their main account, like the ***** enlargement pills.

    Bo en behalwe die webpage changes en sexchanges and username changes wil ek net nog 1 ding se voor ek gaan slaap.

    Hier is nou so baie usernames wat gechange het. Ek weet nie wie is wie nie! Hoe op deeske aarde gaan mens nou weet by wie jy koop. Het dalk met username "Seeroog" probleme gehad in die verlede, nou is sy naam skielik "Misty blue"!!!!????? Net 'n voorbeeld.
    Dit is verskriklik frustrerend. Laat dit dan eerder vir 'n ruk "seeroog/Misty blue"wees sodat ons gewoond kan raak aan de nuwe naam.

    On the contrary, it is (and has been) a VERY lucrative practice for some sleaze-balls among the traders past and present on BoB. It is most usually termed "shillbidding". Driving the price higher or simply buying the item oneself at a low price to prevent selling it for too low a price. All that is then paid are the success fees (a small price to pay in comparison to losing a high-priced item for below cost).

    It is fraudulent, criminal and infuriating!

    I LOATHE shillbidders!

    I have been to a couple of auctions and the same guys are using 2 auction houses to sell their goods on and they bid on their own items thereby pushing up the price.

    Wayne is right. But remember Auction Alliance who seem to be no more??? Somehow the sleaze balls do seem to meet their doom - unfortunately it takes time but it does happen!
    Yesterday I was clever and wanted to change the world.
    Today I am wise and am changing myself.

    Yes AA is just one business but even the smaller auction houses have these guys running around.

    We all know that. Have faith the size of a mustard seed - they are all being watched and if more people reported the underhand goings-on the sooner they will be "no more".

    The problem here is that some "auction bosses" know this is happening and because they get a commission on every sale, it is worth their while to let it run to get a better price.
