I know it's not soul, but some people - this guy is selling 5 singles, they are all common, the rarest is the beltones and thats only worth £10 but incredibly he has one bid, and it's for his reserve of £250! His last 6 winners all have similar names and have only one feedback each. Ebay are fcuking useless if they can't spot what's happening.

Think I know what you mean. Ebay UK seemed to have changed the rules a bit so that the bidder's identities are 'masked' until the auction closes - hence seeing Bidder 1, Bidder 2, Bideer 3 etc. This is to stop other people offering the same record to the bidders while the auctions are running...however, strangely, it doesn't seem to apply to all auctions, which is confusing.
