CBS Error?

Was watching CBS tonight and they were saying the winning bidder was that one website (will not list that site) but they aren't the winning bidder and that anchor gave them free advertisement. If you watched CBS earlier tonight, you know which site I'm talking about. It was like CBS was reporting before the auction was over.

She has not posted it yet. But the high bidder backed out.
Someone signed up just to throw the auction is what I read on a news site.

They retracted the bid.. :(
Here is the news story...

Even Andrew made the news on this story (the bottom part of it)

"VanDunk is not the first person to hawk her bod to advertisers. In January, a Nebraska man auctioned his forehead for $37,375 for SnoreStop, a snoring remedy."

I still do not get why eBay hasn't shut down the crappy bidders????

In my opinion alot of auctions that GP in fact won were ones of which went a bit too high to begin with. I think alot of these leech sites think that if they raise the bid they are helping the seller for when GP may come along. It appears that GP has caught on I am sure... if you check the time frame of Andrews original post about boycott the leeches that's the same time that GP seemed to stay low... it's possible that GP may very well be following sites just like this one and all the leech sites as well to determine who is trying to intimidate bids.

If GP does in fact read these boards and sees this post. You have one day to take a look at my auction. Please.... hehehe... JK

maybe its a good idea for anyone running a high profile auction to compile a list of these people who are known to bid just for the publicity and block them from bidding on the auction

it would kinda be both good and bad to do that...in the early part of the auction you don't mind those people as much...but towards the end you are afraid they will win it

I think we are getting slightly off topic here...lol
