Thread Name: BS: eBay Strategy
Subject: RE: BS: eBay Strategy
.and as for those fools who leave ridiculously over high
proxy bids anything up to a week or more before auctions end..

.. actually i sometimes delight in playing a rather immature game
of chicken..

..bidding in increments just too see how high i can push the price up for them..

so far i've not come a cropper and ended up winning anything that way..

best one was when i left some twat to pay over £600 for a guitar
which i found another one available and bought for £65 only a few weeks later..

what goes through their minds..

" duh.. I know.. if i proxy bid £1000,000 for everything..
I'll never lose any auctions..
and surely no one else would be stupid enough to push the price too high for me....!!!!!???
