Ebay is a lottery, some you win, some you lose. We all know there is bad behaviour and total jiggery pokery. If you are bidding as others have said, set yourself a limit around what you think the item is worth and don't exceed it. There ARE bargains to be had but many items listed as buy it now are priced far beyond their worth and sellers have unrealistic expectations. Never get drawn into a bidding war. You have been warned !!!!!
