Ebay user latentauthor who bid $153,000.00 retracted from the auction citing "Seller [Alex Tew] changed the description of the item".

Two other users - lost.river.trader and ast1155td retracted saying they entered the wrong amount while bidding. Both had entered $160,000,00+ in their pixel bids. A $25m and another $6 million bid were cancelled as they were found to be fake.
