Received the following email from -

The following bid attempt was placed per your request:
Item #332907933253: Samsung Galaxy S6 G920A AT&T Clean IMEI Fair Condition 4-569
Final price: 69.00
Snipe: 91.99
Status from eBay:
Your bid was too low due to eBay's bid increment system

This is automated email, do not reply.

With Best Regards, bid department.

Snipe was set to 4 seconds.

I'm not sure why the sniper did not pick this up as the final price was far below my snipe and I did not manually bid anything.

The current bid was higher on last seconds of the listing, so your bid was rejected by eBay.
Then the higher bid was retracted.

That looks fishy for me. I would contact eBay and suggest to disallow last seconds bid retractions to avoid such issues.
You can tell them that you would bid higher, but your bid was not accepted because of that higher bidder whose bid was retracted on the last second.
