Default Disturbing.......

I just got an email from an auction house telling me what the high bidder's ceiling bid is and if i take the next bid, Im the high bidder. Has anyone ever heard of this? Auction is ending tonight!

Very unethical and probable hidden reserve

It was NOT SportscardLink and they told me if I went one more bid, I would get the card.

In my opinion...

You shouldn't even start a thread like this without going all in with the information.

And, the title should be "Disturbing..." not "Interesting..."

I was asking if anyone has ever heard of this before. Its not easy to figure out which auction it was. It was not ebay or Sportscardlink. It was a Joe Jackson card and I was told if I made one more bid, the card would be mine. I now believe there was probably a hidden reserve because how would they know that I wouldnt have gotten outbid.
