weird bidding on my item

I don't sell much on ebay so this might be normal...

I'm selling a twin pushchair (umbrella fold, nothing flash) that my DCs have outgrown. There are 3 days left and I've had about 15 bids already, mostly from users that have joined Ebay on the day they bid (so no feedback history). It's making me suspicious!

Very strange.

Maybe it's a very special kind of pushchair without you realising. I think we need a link.

That does sound odd. You can set up your listings so it doesn't allow people with no feedback score to bid.

Definitely need a link smile

Does sound a bit suspicious though..

I'm a bit reluctant to post the link because I don't want to join up my mumsnet and ebay Ids... maybe just goes to show I am paranoid! It's only on about £20 now and it really is a basic pushchair. I've listed as paypal only so I can't see how anything untoward would happen. I mentioned it to my mum and she said "don't let them pick up from the house then." Agh!

If you think a bidder is suspicious add them to your blocked bidder list and their bids will be removed.

if they do pick up insist on cash only, if you are posting the item ensure you get signature (use courier) and only ship to registered paypal address.

Weird. But maybe yours is the only one on ebay in a 5 mile radius at the moment? Or maybe you've mispelled something and everyone is now assumiong its a really exclusive model or something?!
