I assume that the only thing a few extra IDís would be used for is shill bidding. Did you know that at many auctions the auctioneer can bid on the item he auctioning. I did some research on auctions after going to a boat auction for damaged boat from hurricane Ivan. It was very eye opening.

Round 2 ended with a $16,500 bid. The winning bidder has no(0) prior ebay transactions.

I was kinda coaching a bidder who had wanted my moho, but procrastinated.
Surprised he did not jump at 16500, it was sure well worth that.

Shilling, false or friends bidding the price up,
Is out of control on Ebay.
If I'm bidding on something and a zero shows up, it is over for me and I ask for my bids to be removed.
Bad enough getting items grossly misrepresented, don't need more problems.
The more leget sellers are banning zero bidders on large items.
Scary to look thru a sellers history of items and se the same bidders over and over.
It is getting close to Halloween though....
