What about eBay?

eBay-Facilitated Fraud is endemic on eBay "nominal-start" auctions ...

If you try to buy anything at a “nominal-start” auction on any eBay website, you need to take great care ...

Shill bidding fraud by professional sellers on eBay “nominal-start” auctions is demonstrably endemic; where you see bidders bidding early and often on such auctions they will most likely be sellers' shills, and eBay Inc. is the greatest knowing and calculated facilitator of such fraud on consumers that the world is ever likely to know - also demonstrably - and, doubtless, only the most naïve will believe that there will not be a trickle down effect of like criminal activity to other eBay operations ...
