It highly unlikely a seller is setting up seperate accounts just to bid on their own stuff. Its very, very difficult to do that now days without ebay busting you. Ebay allows you to have seperate "buying" and "selling" accounts, even a "business" account but they are tied together and you cant bid on your own stuff or ebay shuts down ALL accounts. There are forums dedicated to out foxing ebay by setting up new accounts. In fact, getting a sucessful account set up with ebay (thats NOT connected to any other accounts) is so hard, scammers will pay money for them.
The old days of ebay where you just set up an account and run up your own auctions are long over. Now, can your friend, neighbor or relative run up your auction for you? Sure, once or twice. Maybe even several times as long as its not often, like once a year. But get busted by ebay, and they do catch people no matter how sly they think they are, then you and whoever helped you will forever be "tied" as a same person account. You cant get a new account either, you will forever be effectivly banned.
If you are seeing accounts with no feedback it could be scammers using higacked accounts that have been dormant or abandoned. It could also be scammers using a new account but usually they "season" them by buying from other scammers to get some solid feadback numbers. It could also be a newbie user that has never left feedback so never got any.
Forget trying to bid in the last few seconds, programs have been available for years now that do the last second bids for you. Nobody, no matter how fast of a connection they have can bid in the last half second like the sniping sites can.
Ebay is a whole different place now days...
