eBay jewellery store fined $400,000 for shill bidding | The Register
I wonder how much to a lesser degree this goes on auction sites like eBay all the time. Seems like it would be easy to have a friend artificially raise the price of a lot for you. I'm interested to see how many other stories like this come out.
I've been to a couple of charity auction before were I have seen people bid on items they didn't want to drive the price up to help out, and then sweat it out as they worried that they might win.
