A little over a month ago I sent an email to Ebay about obvious shill bidding.

Of course, Ebay never responded.

This has been going on for months with Ebay seller Stevew6.

Ebay seller Stevew6 is a consistent seller of GFA-certed forgeries.

But along with his selling of GFA-certed and other assorted laughable forgeries, there is shill bidding activity in his auctions and it is obvious.

Let's look at some of the shill bidding within the auctions of Ebay seller Stevew6.

Here are his Mickey Mantle/Roger Maris forgeries still active on Ebay


Now the bidding.  

You will have to click on all of the images that show the bidding to get a closer view.

Check out bidder l***y

As you can see, bidder l***y only bids on auctions from Ebay seller Stevew6.

Next auction by Ebay seller Stevew6.

Mickey Mantle forgery on a baseball with a laughable COA (to go along with the laughable Mickey Mantle forgery) from Stephen Rocchi and his Guaranteed Forensic Authenticators group.


Now check the bidding from bidder l***y

You will have to click on all of the below images to get a better view.

Joe DiMaggio/Ted Williams forgeries listed by Ebay seller Stevew6.


Now the bidding.

Below is a link to other shill bidding from the auctions of Ebay seller Stevew6.

Ebay refuses to act on it.


So, does Ebay now permit shill bidding?

its disgusting, 500 bids, on 65 different items, all with the same seller. duh!!!!  They do not care. They allow pathetic forgeries certed by Guaranteed Fake Always, shill bidding etc etc.  All of which puts more money in their pockets.  It is Coach's Corner with a larger audience.

It sure is, Terrier.

If someone's morals are so low they would knowingly sell bogus products then why would shill bidding be a shock. Ebay is so big and just a corporate giant that it takes time, if they ever get to it, to stop this type of activity.

When a buyer just blows big bucks without do some research, they are just asking to be taken. IMO.

Both parties are guilty. One of criminal intent. The other of stupidity.

Hi James,

Sorry to hear you're still feeling bad.  I continue to pray for you to get better.

And thank you for your nice comments.

It is frustrating for all of us.

It is definitely okay to vent here.  I do it all of the time, James.

Be well.
