Looks like sanjay's bids were removed, but their account is still live. Couldn't see any obvious link with the winning bidder and the seller though.

Or maybe sanjay just stopped bidding at $2,080? It was obviously an auto-bid because sanjay hasn't logged in since the 9th and his
last bid was placed on the 10th. The eventual sale price was $2,220. It is odd for a newbie to place a very high autobid like that and
not even check in to see how his bidding went.

The seller seems to be a Mac dealer and sanjay isn't bidding on any of his current auctions which all have multiple bids.

I'll reserve judgement on this one.
