I very much doubt that you could ever make a completely anonymous bid to buy a piece of real estate, because that's ordinarily done by having a form of contract prepared, complete with the buyer's name and address and signature.  At least in theory, you could hide the "real" buyer's identity in a few different ways, but each one has expenses and risks involved.

If you have a real concern about this, you will need to get far more deeply into the facts, with a lawyer in your area.  One place to look for an attorney is our website, http://attorneypages.com

The attorney providing the answer was not serving as the attorney for the person submitting the question or in any attorney-client relationship with such person. Laws may vary from state to state, and sometimes change. Tiny variations in the facts, or a fact not set forth in a question, often can change a legal outcome or an attorney's conclusion. Although AttorneyPages.com has verified the attorney was admitted to practice law in at least one jurisdiction, he or she may not be authorized to practice law in the jurisdiction referred to in the question, nor is he or she necessarily experienced in the area of the law involved. Unlike the information in the Answer(s) above, upon which you should NOT rely, for personal advice you can rely upon we suggest you retain an attorney to represent you.
