Not sure where to ask this, but I figure more eBayer's hang out here (collectors board) than elsewhere, LOL! I bid on and won and auction the other night. I got it for what I thought it would go for, but the bidding in the last 30 seconds was odd. The items are some 1995 guide books of MK, Epcot and MGM. Someone had early bid, but I knew it would go for much more. With about 18 seconds to go I bid $42.57. High Bidder...for about 3 seconds when it said I was outbid. Cursing to myself (as I knew I should have just entered my max, lol), I quickly rebid $50 and managed to win the auction at $47.91. In looking at the bidding, I was surprises to see 4 bids in row, 1-2 seconds apart. Each entered with a it's own timestamp (ie, separate bid?). I'm guessing this is some sort of snipe attempt? I'm just curious what was going on as if it was single, higher max, it would have simply jumped to that level and be shown as a "automatic bid". Or was someone using some sort of service or "tool" to bid for them? And to what end? Just enter your max and you either get it or you don't and you don't have to worry about spending to much?
