https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/2018-19-Boreham-Wood-v-Arsenal-pre-season-programme/273355704224?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2060353.m1431.l2649

i got outbid few days ago on this programme which went up to £14.50 and all of a sudden 3 bidders have retracted their bids and i am now highest bidder at £3.79.
Looking at the bidders retractions details is this the seller with more than 1 account and bidding his own item up?

The bidder that has two bids on it has had 23 bid retractions in 6 months. 2% bids with this seller, It is dodgy for someone with a feedback score of 15 to be clued up on bid retractions but 3 retractions leaving you high bidder I would say yes but no evidence to prove it, still, only 80p higher than the opening price so no big issue I would say.

It's as crooked as they come. Three separate folk having their bids retracted, all on the same day? There's coincidences and there's skullduggery, and this is most definitely in the latter part. Quite why they've retracted them, unless somebody's onto them, is anyone's guess.
