Basically they are bid until they find your maximum bid then retract their last bid so you are the "winner" and they get more money. Yes I set a maximum bid and stuck to it, but artificially raising the price by shill bidding is against eBay's policies not to mention immoral.
So, I gather the shill bids are placed hoping to induce you to raise your bid, and then when that doesn't work they retract the phony bids at the last moment or they'd wind up buying the item. Seems like you beat them simply by sticking to your maximum bid and not falling for the bait. Most people do get caught up in the bidding competition, so I bet shill bidding works more often than we know.
