If my account is suspended can they still arrest me?
I know this sounds stupid but was just wandering? Cause i also had a few other accounts which also got suspended for shill bidding. I didnt even list that much items either and it wasn't really worth much, im sure theres prob about millions of other people out there that do shill bid.
Opinions please.
I can't say 100% but I doubt you have anything to worrie about. I'm sure they have bigger fish to fry than going after shill bidders.

Welcome to the forums:

1. Please get the eBay stealth guide.
2. Shill bidding is a no no and you should not get other people aside from yourself involved. It'll only wreck your relationship with them.
3. I get the feeling that you are not telling us everything ?
I mean... eBay arresting people for shill bidding? What else did you do, that you are afraid of?

I don't think he is using the right term - shill bidding. I have a sneaky suspicion that, unless he clarifies, the OP is doing some defrauding...

You don't register seller accounts with repetitive shill bidding activity ha - be honest, what did you do for frauding?

If they have your real info, keep looking over your shoulder..

What is op? defrauding? Simple as i made a small mistake i didnt realise it was shill bidding at the time I only did it a few times as i dont sell that much stuff my bad. Nah its cause like i said i made a mistake and my sister has an account as well. so hers has been suspended. And my brother tried to set one too but he cant because of the link to suspended account so none of the family can go on ebay now.

Yes, be scared...VERY scared...shill bidding is illegal and immoral to say the least. People have been arrested for doing it. To assume so many people do "it" is wrong. It is pretty easy to spot shill bidding activity from even a buyers/bidders point of view and if you are dumb enough to do it off of the same computer than you deserve what is coming to ya....

Aspkin....can you start requiring some sort of common sense/morailty type test that people have to pass prior to joining the forum? JEEEEEEZZZZZZZZ
