We have a strict policy against shill bidding.
Shill bidding happens when anyone—including family, friends, roommates, employees, or online connections—bids on an item with the intent to artificially increase its price or desirability.
If we detect shill bidding, your account will be subject to a range of penalties, including suspension of buying and selling privileges and outright cancellation. Shill bidding is illegal in many places and can carry severe penalties.
If you think you see shill bidding taking place, please contact Customer Support. We thoroughly investigate every report we receive.
