Private bidding and listing

I have bought and sold on e-bay for about 6 years and never came across private bidding until today. It confused me as I was bidding on a painting that no one else seemed interested in, and then, yes, a private bid.

I then looked at the sellers other items - and you guess it...more private bids. 

If something smells like a fish, looks like a fish and has fish written all over it, then it's probably a fish.

So, do just a little homework and check out feedback, look at the other items someone has for sale - if you see similar bidding patterns on items that are completely different (in this case a painting, and a silver salt cellar) then beware.
