    Example:

    Bidder 1: $100 (min bid)
    Bidder 2: $200
    Bidder 3: $4000 (WTF????????????????????????????????????)

    Why would anyone bid so much above the current bidder? See this shit all the time on Flippa. WTF??????????????

    Another example:
    Min Bid = $20, no bids.
    Then some guy comes in and bids $500 - FIRST BID! WTF??????????????????????????????????

    That happens sometimes, but I think it's mostly sellers trying to pump their prices :suspicious:
