Let's suppose for a millisecond that Laszlo is correct, BIN acts as the reserve. This is a lost cause.

Then:

1. Why eBay is still investigating this issue?
2. Why the dealer said "the price was a mistake" when apparently this auction tactic is completely planned and intentional?
3. Why suddenly an offer was given below the BIN price outside eBay if in fact the BIN is the reserve?
4. Why there is a "You won!" confirmation of this auction if the BIN was never exceeded?
5. Why this thread even exists if this was completely on purpose?
