Should dh be scared of this bidder?

Dh is selling some Very Nice sunglasses on ebay and has had two email queries (the same question) from the same bidder.

Same guy has also left two queries (STILL the same question - which, yes, dh replied to first time - in dh's ebay account.

And here's the weird bit: this person is the ONLY bidder, having got himself from 99p all the way up to 29.99.

Do we smell a nutter, or is this normal ebehaviour?

well... if he put a bid in of, say £50 then every time someone else puts in a bid of less than that, it will just show him bidding again, and will not show the other bidder, so that in itself isn't an issue.

The question thing though... maybe he doesn't know how to work the "send" button, or perhaps he is a nutter...

has he told you he has $1.2million in an account in Lagos?

The queries that he emails you also get sent to your ebay account, this is what ebay does, it is not the guy.

Doesnt sound weird to me at all. Its impossible to "bid yourself" up to £29.99. He could put in 6 bids of different amount, but it would only show his initial bid unless someone has bid against him.

Every time he asks you a question, it will be emailed to you AND show in your ebay messages (so it migth seem like he has sent the message again)
