2ND Turn Canada Auction

hi guys and Gals need some help could someone explain me how i am out bidded when i am close to finished time.
i was watching this past 1 day and i saw the price its $118 and the auction day its went up to $155 to higher bidder was Mr**29 until its almost time to close i start bidding to then the price went to $170-$175 but it does not make any sense how come the guy only bided once 2 days ago and i bided on auction day close to ened time and still lost it is it scam by site or glitch. here is the picture of bidders and times my name is by the red arrow.

Scam: so they want the item to be sold at more price and so keep outbidding every one until the bidding reach to the price they want it to be sold.

any help or advice will be appreciated Thank you.

Some people wait until the last minutes or even seconds to make their bids.

Unless you're watching your auction also in the last seconds, you have the possibility of being outbid.

Doesn't mean it's a scam. It just means you didn't win the auction.

As for the bid timing, some auctions allow people to put a max bid which then allows new bids to be generated automatically up to their max bid.

For example if bid increments are $1.00 and the current bid is $60, if I put a max bid of $65, my bid will go in for $61, and if you bid $62 the system will automatically bid $63 without further action from me.

The winner placed a max bid(i.e., a bid greater than $175 on February 5th) long time ago. Almost all online auctions work like this.

so if someone bid it max would it show at the current bid or not ?

The max bid will not show unless someone bids up to just below the max bid amount. If the max bid entered by the buyer was $70, and the bid increments are $1 and you bid $62, then you would only see $63 as the highest bid. If you bid $69 then you would see $70. If you bid $71, you would have won unless another bidder posts a bid of $72 or higher.

These bidding sites have people who work for them to outbid and max the amount of money they can get.
