In your screenshots, you stated DS97 is your friend. Can you please tell him to respond to this Player Report stating he did not bid on the item, or post a screenshot of him verifying to you that he did not offer on said item?
Hi Bread, shouldn't it be the seller's obligation to reveal the person who made the c/o when requested in case of a fake bid? In this case, when the ign of the person with the c/o was requested, DS97 was offline and it rose suspicion that it might be a fake bid. Further, the seller should be the one showing the SS as proof when requested instead of asking Littlepuff to to approach the person who made the c/o for clarification. It doesn't seem right to ask LittlePuff to get proof from the bidder (i.e. DS97)
There is also evidence (as attached) that the seller is being suspicious with the c/o. If the c/o of 1.2k was set by DS97, why did the seller sell me the item for 1.2k (I am not DS97)? There can only be two possibility: Seller is giving a fake bid or both seller and DS97 is creating a story for a fake bid of 1.2k.
