I bid on an item with a max bid of $50.00.  With one hour left before the bidding stops ansd with the current bid price of 6.65, a ebay member bid twenty three times at five to ten dollar increments until he/she reached $51.00 which made him/her the highest bidder.  Witin three minutes, this person retracted their bid.  Now, I am stucck at my highest bid when I could have won the item at a much lower price.  I called Ebay customer support about possible shilling and they said that they could not prove it because the seller and the high bidders name was not the same; their address was not the same; their phone number was not the same and their IP adddress was not the same.  Regardless of what took place, they refused to look into it.  Also, Ebay policy says that one cannot retract a bid if less than twelve hours is left before the bidding stops.  When this person started the escalating bids up to $51.00 and then retracted the bid in 3 minutes, there was less than an hour before the bidding ended.. [continued below]....



Ebay is very deceitful in having its members believe that they are safe guarding buyers.  Their lack of attention to this manner is just another nail in their coffin.  Very deceptive practices.  By the way, I purchased thru PayPal for this item.
