Check out the seller of this Smart Car on eBay. The highest bidder is currently 'breakdance69' but if you check the feedback of 'breakdance69' he had previously attempted to sell a Honda Prelude and had the following in his item description "WE ARE ACTUALLY SELLING 2 CARS, THE OTHER IS A "SMART" IN AQUA GREEN, WE JUST WANT TO SELL BOTH TO GET A BETTER CAR. FULL INSPECTION IS ALLOWED AT ANYTIME ANY DAY."

This means that the high bidder is also the seller.

I know this sort of thing goes on all the time on eBay but I've not seen many sellers as stupid as this one (hope the seller isn't a member of this forum).

I suppose you have to expect this sort of thing in any auction whether on-line or not. He's just being a bit too overt about it IMO.

I can see why he is doing it but I think it a little unnecessary at this point in the game. If in the last 5 minutes it wasn't going to hit what he wanted, I suppose he could either stop the auction or bid what he wants the car to achieve and see what happens.

So when he WINS the auction he can re-post saying:-
"Re-advertised due to time waster".
