I had that auction on my watch list to see what it would go for, now that it has ended something does not look right about it. The bidder bathingxchimp has bought a couple of things from the seller last year & I also checked the bidders bidding & he has bid on some other auctions from the seller.

I sense a red flag here, maybe bathingxchimp is a shill bidder. I could be wrong tho.  :-\

Also the seller is asking for the winner to apply 4% for the final amount which is against eBay rules.

Ebay seems to be getting out of hand lately. I just lost $145 in a non starwars related auction, and that was after I filed with paypal to get my money back. I have been totally staying away from buying SW on ebay, to many liars out there.

Mint condition C-10 Perfect!!!!........You finally get it and it looks like an hippo sat on it. That is the usuall for me. Sick of it.
Anyone got a ben for sale??

he replied to me and say he'll have pics up for me. i jst pray that the card and bubble is good and he hasnt done any touch-up.

as for the extra charges, can i complain to ebay?  :P

i dun really mind the shilling, since its a couple of dollars more but jst everything to be alright.

anyway the reason that bathingchimp gave for the bid retraction was 'he couldnt pay with paypal'.. what BS..

Hey Tan,

What a bummer.  Its a sure shill and it stinks to high hell.  BathingChimp and MonkeyBusiness, and both from Canada???  But what really stinks is the way he did it.

1.) BathingApe bids 225.00 at Mar-25-06 04:41:46 PST.
2.) The bid is cancelled by Monkeybusiness at Mar-25-06 06:13:25 PST  (in the last twelve hours the seller is the only one who can cancel)
3.)  Inexplicably BathingApe immediately bids 220.00 again at Mar-25-06 06:14:52 PST  (1 minute later and the exact amount needed to max out Tan's bid).

I'd say call him on it.  Tell him you feel cheated by this other bidder and that you want the card at your previous high bid of 191.00.  If he accepts, is cordial and can provide pictures, then maybe risk it; either way report him.  Very blatant and not cool.

-Scott

Tan, I think you should get this for the lower price too. He wasn`t even very
sneaky about the shill bidding, what a dope! If you feel uneasy at all about this
one, I`d back out of it. With the shilling and asking for paypal fees, he probably
won`t even neg you. Sometimes I really hate eBay!

Well, your buddy is at it again:

Same guy that had to withdraw his bid on the Fett, now bidding on this one.
I thought he couldn`t pay according to his reason for retracting his Fett bid?
Honestly, I would kill the deal right now and get out of it if it were me. Make
sure you send eBay all the info too.

I agree with Adam, there are red flags all over this. If he retracted his bid  because he can't can't pay with Paypal the other 2 bids he had should have been retracted too & to top it off he has won some auctions that I listed above which were Paypal auctions & he bid on them & won way before the Fett.

I would back out if I was you.   :-\

Well, he bid it up to $80. I feel like emailing the buyer and telling him to order from Sideshow for $50! Shill bidding at its best  ::)

That one looks real to me, the color on the staff looks correct and all. I don`t think I`ve seen
that seller before though.
