EBay - Is it honest?

Received an email from eBay saying certain (5) items were ending soon (I had them on "Watch"). All the items in the email showed "Current bid" amounts. Checked the items, as unusually none showed any bids at all a few hours earlier ... NO "bids" have been made on any of them.

Checked the items, as unusually none showed any bids at all a few hours earlier ... NO "bids" have been made on any of them.

So is that honest or just downright misleading or what? Could there be
another reason for the email showing bids on items ... when there are none?
