Some bright spark at eBay has come up with this new policy. You wil no longer be abled to see what user ID is the highest bidder on an item. The higest bidder will now be refered to as " Bidder 1" " Bidder 2" etc. The user ID will only be available to the seller. Now how dose this prevent shill bidding?. According to eBay is dose!!!! Im sorry but they dont act on half of the bid bumping that gose on on that site. I reported one that was so blatant it could have smacked you in the face!. I received an automated reply and no action was taken.
