Ebay is not fair sometimes.
You have to take the good with the bad and don't take it personal.
You say you want anything that comes up on ebay?
That is a pretty bold statement.
Like Fred said, if you are Hell bent to win an auction.
There are sites that bid for you at the last second.
Its pretty cheap to use, but you have to pay in the end.
When I first discovered ebay, I too was frustrated at always losing at the last second. It happens.
You have to beat them at their own game.
If shill bidding is going on, they will get caught, especially when the same item comes up again and again after being won.
Slow and steady wins the race. Wink

Well said Fred... ebay and fairness are oil and water

Daron, I once won an auction at way too high a price (alcohol may have been involved) and checking the bids later it was obvious shills were at work. Contacted Ebay and they cancelled the deal.

It pays to keep your side of the street clean like Fred says.

I'm pulling for you to get a deal Mikey...

That Antares DC you sold me was so sweet and you gave such a great price. Thanks!

I'ts going to Bridgeport with me in a few weeks.

They are going to outbid me. But it will be someone who wants it more. More power to him. The owner will get a fair price.

Don't ever bid on 3 antique outboard motors on ebay at 3:00 am.  You wake up and discover you won all 3.. shipping was murder.. I did however, get a cool collection of vintage coleman lanterns the same way.. My favorite is a 1969 "sunshine of the night"

Speaking of 3AM bidding, since I recently finally am following many doctor's orders and exhortations to stop drinking etoh; packages are no longer arriving as a complete surprise. I bought these?

You guys crack me up.  The last thing I want to do is look on a computer when I'm drinking.  Now that I don't drink, all I do is look on the computer, phone or tablet.

When you are drinking all the time when can you look at your computer?

I never looked at the computer...I cannot discuss what I was doing due to the 12 years old language rule. Wink

I haven't been on e-bay in quite a few years.  I never sold on the site, but won/bought a few rods and reels.  Like everyone else, I got a couple overpaid items, as well as a couple of steals.  I used to watch some sellers who were close to me.  I know it is frowned upon, but I could have contacted sellers before auctions ending (but never did).  I bought some additional stuff from sellers after agreeing to meet FTF and inquiring what else they might have at that moment.

One of my overpaid deals was a used high end saltwater reel from an out of state tackle shop.  It appeared pristine, and was listed as "serviced" and with service/repair records.  It was serviced alright, but there was salt build-up on some of the noncritical internal areas.  And one of my best deals was a little used custom Calstar 760M trolling rod (I believe part of an estate sale).  The auction ended on the night before Thanksgiving (good time to look) and Calstar was misspelled in the listing, but labeled correctly, in script, in the accompanying photos.  I was the only bidder and the Reserve was an easily met bid.

Just "Buyer Beware".
