Wouldn't have guessed that Yahoo Auctions would even accept a bid of 91 million dollars. Or that someone would pay that much for Gackt's jewelry... may have been a fake bid, though. At least, I hope it was.

It was no doubt a fake bid. I think something similar happened with one of YOSHIKI's auctions? Yahoo just doesn't do enough to stop these fake bids. I'm guessing that's why GACKT is taking it to his own site where they can have more control

I don't think anyone believes this was a real bid
