So, i've been trying to get my FIL a certain Christmas gift on e-bay.. (motorcycle license plate). And some jack wagon keeps out bidding me.. I've lost like 7 auctions so far.. They always swoop in with 2 seconds left and bid above me... My question IS: HOw DO THEY know what my highest bid will be?? LIke it will SHOW $76.00 as the bidding price.. but i had made MY highest/increase bid to say $79.00..(and that doesnt show, to anyone but ME.. right??) So then how is it they always bid like 1 dollar more than my top bid at the end of auction and win the auction?? Can they SEE my highest bid price?? Because i cant see theirs! And i'm getting mighty IRKED!
