20 years or so ago I went to an auction down by Milledgevile Illinois. There was a half dozen things I was interested in and bid on. About the 3rd item I bid on I noticed another guy bidding up and dropping out before he won the item. Got to the point he was running everything up and buying nothing. HMMM. Well a WD-45 came up and I got in a bidding war with this character and pushed the price up over $2000. No sooner than I bid he goes higher so I just stopped bidding and said to the auctioneer and everyone else there that this guy was a shill bidder and working for the Auctineer. Auctioneer sai that he didn't work that way but everyone there knew his reputation. I turned to walk away and this Auctioneer all but begged me to add another bid. I loaded and paid for the items I had bought and see this shill bidder get chewed out by his wife big time. A week later the tractor was on another sale of the auctioneer's and barely brought $1000. No sure if they learned their lesson or not.

When I suspect I'm bidding against a shill and its something I really want I bid as if I'm thinking every bid is my maximum. Makes them a lot more cautious about tossing out their next bid if they think they'll own it.
