    What is that latin saying, can't remeber it. Means "Buyer beware"

    This isn't breaking any laws, so who cares if someone is dumb enough to pay that much for that Carvin stack.

    Looks to me like someone has gone to type in a bid of $700 and typed in $7000.

    I sent him an email with the carvin info, hopefuly he gets to it before the auction ends.
     
  5. Nope; even if they did, it would've only bid a few bucks higher than the second-highest bidder. Those aren't legit bids, nobody could believe that stack is actually worth $7000. I'm guessing it's one of the following:
    1) seller decided he didn't want to sell it anymore but someone already bid, so he had a friend shill the auction higher than anyone would ever pay
    2) the auction is a scam of some sort and the bidders bumped up the price to keep some poor sucker from losing his money...perhaps the picture is stolen or something?
