When selling anything electronic there are a few precautions to take 1 - make sure your settings show that you DO NOT ship internationally. 99% of scam attempts will come from buyers overseas 2 - state very clearly in your ad that you do not ship overseas AND that you will ONLY ship to Paypal verified addresses 3 - Do not offer the Buy it Now option 4 - If anyone emails you asking you to invoice them or end the auction early, do not respond to them. If they do not pay through Ebay's checkout page then they are trying to scam you. Never give your Paypal account details to anyone 5 - be suspicious of anyone who outbids themselves. It's normal that if there are 12 bidders you'll see some of the same people bidding against each other. But if they are bidding against themselves, then they are often trying to scam you 6 - when shipping always send with a signature required on receipt AND insurance with anything electronic 7 - before you ship, take a picture of the item in the box right before you seal it with a time and date stamp to show the condition when you sent it. Also not the serial number. Scammers who have broken electronics will often buy one on Ebay, claim it doesn't work, then send you their broken one back. If you don't have a record of the serial number you have no proof you have been scammed

When a bidder puts in their highest $ they want to bid - the system will automatically bid for them in increments and it will look like they are the only one bidding - but it is just how the system works. That is normal.
