Your feelings on second chance offers on eBay?

On eBay, a second chance offer is often given if a seller has more than one of an item in stock or if the person who buys their item by outbidding you does not pay. The seller might offer it to you for the price you were willing to pay. I've been offered quite a lot of stuff lately, and it's wigging me out. The second chance offers that I feel are legitimate don't come right after the end of the auction. Are these sellers doing something wonky to "up" the bids and then offering to sell to me when they realize I'm not paying more than I intended, or am I just paranoid?

    The price isn't the question. I'm wondering if some sellers create second accounts to up their bids to see if we're willing to spend more. I seem to get them often after bidding wars.
