Suspicious Ebay bidding?

Suspicious Ebay bidding?

Is there a way to report suspicious bidding on Ebay? I thought there used to be, 10 or more years ago but it was long enough ago that I may be wrong.

I have an item I was watching and today it has been bid above what the cost is new. Early on there were a few bidders with history but today 3 new bidders with 0 feedback and having only bid on this one thing have started. Just seems odd, one I can understand but three?

I *think* the seller can but I'm didn't see anything where a buyer could.

shill bidding is still a no-no. Sellers cant do it, buyers can but sometimes sellers have their friends do it. IT sucks, but at least you know what sellers to stay away from
