Default Reason for concern?

I have 24 items listed right now on my account, of those the current high bidder on 5 is the same user, now normally I wouldn't think too much of this except I sell clothing and of the 5 items she is bidding on none are the same size, they range from XS up to size 14, in fact its XS, S, Medium Tall, 14 Petite and Large. And she only has 2 feedback, so that kinda worries me that this is trouble waiting to happen, I mean why on earth would one person buy clothing in such a range of sizes, being new I kinda wonder if she realizes that it only comes in the size listed or is she gonna think that she can just tell me what size she wants after it ends. Any thoughts? Am I just being paranoid or would this worry you as well?

Well think about it, in the US, its almost time for back to school. Maybe that buyer is shopping for some clothes for some people that they know for their own kids.

I would just straight out ask the buyer on what are their intentions. It works most of the time for me.

She could be buying multiple sizes for any number of reasons. It wouldn't hurt to do some research on her username, email address, real world address, etc.

Well I looked at her feedback left for others, she's only left 8 feedback and 3 of them are negatives they all say "Seller didn't send what I ordered, wrong item" one says "Sent wrong size refused to replace" and the other says "Terrible seller, wouldn't work out issue with item"

So now Im pretty worried, she's been outbid on one item so I hope that happens with the other 4 too and I won't have to deal with her. I've never cancelled bids before but I know that if you are the bidder you can request to have your bid cancelled, can a seller cancel someone's bids if that person hasnt requested it?

Some people do buy clothes for their family. 2 feedback...while CAN be worrisome - could mean she is just trying things out...has she bought clothing in the past?

That being said - IF you are paranoid about it, just block her bidding and move on - all depends on if you aren't sure about her status - decision is yours.

If I were feeling troubled like this, yes I would cancel her bidding and block.
