Gunbroker and "ghost bidders.."

Internet legend has it that a seller advertises a product on GB but nearing the end of the listing, it hasn't brought what he expected.

He can't simply cancel the listing. (Can he?)

So, he creates a false GB identity and raises the price. The listing runs out and he hasn't lost money on the actual sale of the gun.

But, he still pays a GB fee?

I'm only asking because I'm bidding on a particular gun and now that it's about to expire, a "NR" bidder raises the price to an unrealistic level. It might not be the seller. But it might be.

It just doesn't seem worth it. Unless he can claim the "winner" never followed through?
