I am a member of Bidz.com. Tonight I attempted to bid on several different items. The same name of the top bidder kept cropping up, bidding above me. I began scrolling through the items up for bid and found the same bidder was top bidder on about 16 different items. I contacted Bidz and they swore up and down they didn't have a shill on board. Hah.
I put several of the items that this bidder ( Zobellion) was top bidder on, on my watch list. I also printed out a copy of the some 12 items that this shill was bidding on at about 7:00 Pacific Daylight time and have two copies of same. There is no way that Bidz can deny that Zobellion was shilling out some of the bids. I don't know if They can disprove that I bid on these items, but I did.
I gave up once I began scrolling through their current list of items and saw that Zobellion was top bidder on more than 40 items for the current time frame. It will take a lot to convince me that Zobellion is not a shill and operating soley for the purpose of making the bids go higher in favor of Bidz. com. I have printed off copies of all the items I put on my watch list tonight, just to prove how many zobellion had control of in the space of about 5 minutes of bidding and just how interested to see how bidz actually shows my final watch list.
I personally do not trust them any more and will not attempt to make any more bids against shills.
