I think there is a lot of bidding. Can't prove it, but I had 3 items in the last three weeks, where I was the first to say I'll take it, and emailed seller for address. On 2 of those occasions I didn't get a reply email, so I emailed the sellers again, and they both said its sold. The other, seller emailed his address, at 5:45 the following day, I was at the fire dept the next day, and could not contact him, the following morning, when I got home, I emailed him, he said it was sold. I checked his post, and he had put....emailsent!!!! no reply!!! btt!!!, it was 29 hours after he emailed his address. I think I got out bid? I don't know how you could tell, much less stop bidding. This isn't ebay!.........I don't want to post negative feedback on someone, unless they don't produce the goods, who knows maybe they sold the items to a friend, and not on this site. I have bought quite a few things since finding arfcom, and all but the 3 above have been fine.
