Does this look odd to you?
There are some Canon Pixma MP480 printers up for grabs - ending
about 3pm sunday (apr 25). All from the same vendor, all with 3 bids
against them, all at the same bid price (£18.05) all bids from the
same three people, in the same order.

It wouldn't be unusual for one person to have bids on several items at the
same level if he kept getting outbid - I've decided I want to pay £20 for an
item and kept bidding on ones about to finish until I succeed. For three
people doing this at the same time.... a bit fishy indeed.
