What's with the weird bidding history? One account bid it up from $9.50 to $226 in a span of about a half hour, and then the last guy came along a few hours later and made the final winning bid. Maybe an alt account driving up the price so it seems like it's an actual iphone?

Seller might have known he had a sucker on the line, and used another account to shill bid. Seller will likely be SOL if buyer squeals to feebay.

Just had a buffoon ask me if my $15 dummy tablet had stable WIFI, I'm glad he asked before buying.

I almost was ripped off by two different febay sellers. I bought two cheap watches from two Indian febay users. When they eventually arrived a month later from India, they originated from the same address. So it's a guy with multiple accounts trying to dodge all the negative feedback he's been getting.

Both watches were broken in different ways: one ran too slowly and the other was dead with a misaligned dial. The guy ignored everything febay and I said... and eventually febay forced a refund for both. It's the first time I've had to get febay involved. Apparently the guy is big enough that febay leaves him alone for the most part, despite so much negative feedback.

Make sure you make a separate complaint against him regarding the dual IDs. Extremely rare for feebay to not side with the buyer, but I've heard that the big sellers have a better chance.

Both accounts were created a month apart in 2002. He's been around a lot longer than I have - I'm sure febay is well aware of the accounts but looks the other way because he brings in so much money. I got my refunds so I'm done.
