set of bidders (mostly from USA)and mostly newbies. Weird. Seller's feedback hidden but has done satisfactory deals.

I looked again and the top bidder with the variable (often) name jumped from £500 to £3333.
He/she seems a "fruit case" with a host of name changes and retractions, as well as keeping feedback private.

We'll probably never know who bought this deal and whether it was ever completed.

Even the banks chosen for payment, reek of suspicion, but the sale is over and I'll resolve this.

Talking about good deals on eBay. If today's Daily Express is correct, then the owner of Chelsea football club as instructed his legal people to put in a bid of 85 million for a not yet built yacht or ship that's being advertised on eBay.

Apparently, he already owns three similar vessels, with a market value of 65 million on his best 'toy' of the fleet.

I think you are right.
He saw what we all saw - spelling mistakes in a gaudy presentation, lots of ambiguities, and payment methods which were almost guaranteed to disappear into a black hole.............
......but he DID something about it!

But will the highest bidder have a bad feedback, or even worse,have their eBay membership cancelled, for not honouring a contract? :o)

bidder, if you look at his 'about me' is supposed to be a protector of honest bidders. Think I'll keep an eye on his feedback just to see.

Not only the vendor who keeps his past to himself.
The bidder has a weird record too. 4 deals, three positive feedback, one negative "wouldn't pay"

During the same period has made 19 bid retractions!

that could be how he is protecting unsuspecting buyers...
