Hi,

I just placed a bid, a $1  addition to the last bid, and got an instant notification of being outbidded by another person.
I placed another + $1 bid and got an instant reply too.

This looks fishy to me.
Please what exactly is going on here?

They are proxy bids.  You can place a bid that will automatically bid up to your proxy bid price.  So if you are willing to bid $100, and the auction is only at $10, it will only bid the lowest amount needed to beat any other bid.  

See the example here - https://www.dynadot.com/community/help/question/how-to-proxy-bid
