The practice of contacting bidders and offering to sell them the same item they are currently bidding on, thus drawing bidders away from the legitimate seller's auction.
The practice of drawing bidders away from a seller's auction by contacting them and offering the same item for purchase elsewhere.
When a third party emails bidders in a running auction and tries to sell them a similar item for a price lower than the current high bid.
Emailing another sellers bidders and offering a lower price or better terms (not ethical)
Sellers make contact with bidders and offer to sell them the same item they are presently bidding on. This draws bidders from the legitimate seller's auction. Bidder contact data is not released until the end of a winning Bidz.com auction, so this practice is uncommon on Bidz.com.
