The scammer broke into the poor guy's account. Most likely the top bidders will get requests for cash sent by Western Union, that later gets picked up in eastern Europe or Nigeria.

Email him and say you'll wire him $20,000 cash right now if he ends the auction and sells to you. I'll bet you'll get a response then.
