It is not that common for a sharp, reputable dealer to step up to the plate on bogus "auctions" like this one run on hijacked accounts and bid to the skies knowing there is nothing really being offered. At least "paypal" guarantees the integrity of transactions which is vital with all the fake, phony, frauds out there.
