    Something like Fiverr review exchange groups... to fake/exchange bids on Flippa, below the reserve price, and attract more potential buyers?

    Today I posted my first domain for sale there, so I don't know yet how everything function.
    Does these groups exist at all?

    Shill biding tends to be illegal in many countries.

    This would be very bad idea. Some Flippa people are member here and they will catch you in no time. I remember one vip member before that needs help about bids. his account was banned very fast. The one who helped was also banned from flippa.

    If you have a decent site to sell, don't worry, bids tends to come on the last days.. sometimes hours before the auction ends. be patient.

    People watch for that kind of stuff. If they notice the same people bidding on multiple projects/posts you'll probably get called out and banned.

    Listen to the advice from the posters above ^

    Shill bidding is fraud and not to be taken lightly.

    That makes almost as much sense as "I don't want to steal the car to sell it to someone else later. I just want to drive it a little bit".
