Exclamation How In The Heck Does This Happen?

31 auctions on EBAY for the same boat! I have run across duplicates many times that may have been accidental, but 31? The best part is there are 3 different prices.....$38,000, $35,500 and $35,000.

Imagine the mess this guy would have to sort out if he got bids on all these auctions?

He has been trying to sell it for over a month now. Every time he has at least 5 adds at once.

I saw that this morning. It is against ebay policy to have more than one identical listing. In fact they cancelled one of mine for a $4.00 item. But somehow this guy can have 31 auctions for the same boat at the same time..........?????
