Ebay getting sued?? - Page 2

post #11 of 15
I know what they are talking about because I've seen one of my bids like that...say 4 people bid, I put in a bid for 100.... the high bid is like...72...so mine goes to 73.00...check later and it is at 75.50 and no bids in between so yes their system does that...

Exactly, its not at all random it would seem.

But that ebay raised the price on specific items.. not because of a higher bid.. but simply because they wanted more $$ .. the difference would obviously go to their pockets...

Thats serious.

Now thats interesting. Ebay denies all allegations, yet after mediation they agree to pay 2.1 million to charities, 800 grand to plaintiffs lawyers, and 100 grand to plaintiffs, ok. Apparently plaintiffs did some data mining and (presumably) could prove the allegations of their complaint. They had to have some proof to force ebay to shell out the $. I think what the plaintiffs are complaining of is when you are high bidder and there is no reserve and you bid again (raise your last bid) your actual committed bid goes up. I've probably given ebay about $5 doing this. The plaintiffs apparently had some data mining skills and some "creative" legal thinking and probably put together a complaint designed from the start to force a settlement. Interesting indeed, small damages to any given class member (so that no one class member gives a crap), but a large enough class so that the lawyers give a crap. If I wasn't so lazy I would write the clerk of the court and request a copy of the complaint, as I am a class member and it is public record. A good example of the fact that a substantial percentage of US civil law is about lawyers finding their way into somebody elses pocket, for their own benefit (and as a side note, their clients' benefit).
