Default What happens when?

What happens when a customer wins an auction and bids on and wins subsequent auctions?

Unless the customer is bidding on 1911s or exceeds the yearly limit on Garands, he or she sends in the paperwork and money and gets the items.

If 1911's, the limit is one per customer regardless of whether it is received through sales or auction. If someone bids on an auction after already receiving a CMP 1911, the bidder will be disqualified.

I should have specified it was the 1911 auction.

This has happened at least a time or two, and CMP keeps an eye out for it. Not sure what other sanctions they impose on those trying to get around or abuse the rules.

It's happened at least 13 times since the 1911s were being auctioned. I know they've said that when/if someone wins multiple auctions that the winner is given a choice and the gun not chosen goes to the next highest bidder. Some of the multi-winners were all during one auction, but the latest multi-winner has won 1911s in 3 separate auctions. If the extra wins aren't re-auctioned, the multi-winners are just driving up the bids for the runners-up.

So what is your question at this point.......?
You seem to have answered your own question.
And hasn't this been beat to death in several threads in the past?

I don't think I answered my own question.
A bidder in this latest auction won a 3rd auction. That is 3 separate 1911's in 3 separate auctions. That is the second instance of a 3 time winner in 3 separate auctions. I understood from previous answers from cmpauction that multi-bidders would be advised that they cannot bid on another 1911 and if they continue to do so that they would be banned from the auction. This apparently isn't so. So, what happens?

Have you notified the Auction site managers?
Email your concerns to them?
