Online auction and bidding websites are increasingly getting crowded by software-controlled auction snipers or online bots. Auction bot fraud prevents human bidders from winning auctions and even allows sellers to use bots to bid for the item to inflate the prices, making it impossible for genuine users to buy listed products at a reasonable price.
Auction bots also frustrate auction companies when fraudsters steal bidder information from auction websites and offer to sell them the same items, they are currently bidding, thus drawing bidders away from the legitimate auction sites. This results in dissatisfied bidders who often blame the brand for lack of transparency. InfiSecure helps online auction and bidding websites know in real-time if a bid is made by a bot or a human to eliminate unfair bot auction activity.
Fraudulent sellers use automated shill bidding bots on auction websites to unfairly inflate the bid value of an item to be sold. Shill bidding is also used with no bids or interest from the buyers, creating an artificial interest on the item.
Fraudulent buyers submit very high bids to discourage other bidders from competing for the same item, then retract their bids so that people they know can get the item at a lower price.
Fraudsters contact bidders and offer to sell them the same item they are currently bidding, thus luring bidders off legitimate auction sites. Bots are used in bid siphoning to stealing the bidders' contact and bid information from auction sites.
