I don't know. Last fall I saw a father son team who like to do the "secret bidding" thing. The father cupped his chin and move his index finger across his cheek to indicate his next bid and his son would also make sly little moves to bid. Standing next to each other they ran an item up a couple of hundred dollars bidding against each other. They didn't know they were both bidding.
My wife, at her 1st auction where she was bidding, got stopped by the auctioneer who told her she was bidding against herself.

Stopping her was the sign of an honest auctioneer. We have a local one who uses his floor helpers to run up a bid. Most of the locals have caught on and will not bid once he starts this but it is not unusual to watch a newcomer fall into the bidding trap.
