Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I will try my level best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can.
If you have someone bidding there on your behalf, then they would just notify the sheriff or other official that the bidder is you, not them, and that they are acting as your agent. They would need a power of attorney to present to the official to show proof that they have the legal ability to bind you by bidding for you on your behalf.
The deed isn't issued that day, as it normally takes ten days or so for them to prepare it, so you can have the deed issued in any name that you want. They just care who is responsible for paying for it, not whose name the deed goes into.
As an aside, I have bought dozens of foreclosure properties over the years..
