Seems a little off?

This guy puts up 4 or 5 spyder clones/tippmanns and they sell for really good money and get lots of attention considering what they are. You think its newbies going for this stuff or maybe trolls driving the prices up? I don't know it just seems a little weird to me

I've thought the same. Checking out past bids and info on each auction, they do seem to differ. If I was bidding I'd be disturbed by all the new/ 0 feedback bidders driving up the price though.

Always on a tile floor. And the listings are pretty identical to each other.

Ive always wondered about this guys listing. See them all the time for crazy money...

Could just be laundering money.

Found a few accounts a while back that where selling the same vintage guitars.

Bid on one and lost, then saw it relisted later.

Won the bid on it and then recieved a message saying item was out of stock and then it was re listed.

They where laundering.

Reported to ebay and the next two or so days the accounts didnt exist anymore.

this guy seems to only post one listing up at a time but in his feebback has multiple positive reviews on the same day; and often the same "buyer"...
another thing thats strange is that allot of the "buyers" that left feedback are duplicate people.
as in:
person a
person a
person b
person a
person c
person a
person a
