    make sure to file a seller non-performance complaint. at the least, it'll get him kicked off ebay.

    Heh, I was watching that auction. Some eBay lamers don't understand the concept of listing items on eBay. Looks like this guy was just listing it as a back up plan, and probably had the lot advertised in his local paper, and who knows where else? I can't believe he actually sold some of the lot, without even saying anything about it in the auction... I mean he took the time to update the "mistake" on the sealed Kirby's Adventure... what a douche.

    Well , whats the worst here are the circumstances. If I had won this auction for $5,000.00 this would not have happened. He did mention he might end the auction early which was fine I can live with that. That he had this collection listed for sale elsewhere is plausable. I knew upfront before I bid so I can accept that. But here he just put that in there incase the auction didn't sell for enough money.

    ALL of the items were sold TO ME.

    In your first email you said I was your "second" if he backs out NOW you say some items were already sold. Thats ok play it your way. I can't stop you but don't expect me to believe any of this crap.

    I had a similar problem a few years back when I won an auction for an SNES lot with a Super Scope, Avantage, Mouse, and like 50 games for around $100. The seller mailed me within minutes after the auction ended saying that the listing was a mistake, and was supposed to be removed. So I informed him of his binding contract, and he told me that the lot was already sold. ... I could understand why he didn't want to let it go that cheap, but to lie to me about the listing being a "mistake", when I knew he was most likely frantically clicking "refresh" the last ten minutes of it, kinda pissed me off.

    I reported him- probably won't work since I'm not the buyer.
    Buyatari should be reporting him & getting him kicked off.

    So let me ask you this. Would you even want to send this guy $1500.00? Now you have to send to someone elses paypal account since his isn't "working right now". Its one thing to be shafted its another to be ripped off. I've given up on getting this stuff. I was pissed off for a day and its over. If ebay suspends him good if not I have to move on and find the next auction.

    I would never have bid. Why bid on an auction that does not accept paypal? Check/money order provides no safety for you.




    But assuming I did bid, YES I'd give him the money if he agrees to sell the goods -'cause I'm protected by paypal & credit cards if he decides to steal the money & not deliver. Plus I'm obligated to pay.

    But if he still refuses- a likely scenario- I'd follow option #2 & report him to Ebay.

    If he accepts, see if there is someone on DP in his area who can act as an intermediary. If he was in my area, I'd do it for you.

    Well at least he can't brag about 100% positive feedback anymore. Also paypal provides you no real protection, those dicks don't care about you. The seller can send you a box of bricks. As long as he has a tracking number that shows he sent you something there is a 95% chance paypal will side with the seller.

    I find these sealed NES lots cause nothing but problems. Remember the large one from Hawaii that had a BIN for 13,000. The winning bidder also didn't get it. I bet some eBayer saw that it went for "low" price and decided to offer the seller and extra couple of hundred for it.

    ebay is a catch-22. According to ebay rules: A seller does not have to complete a transaction but a winning bidder must pay.

    Reason why is either way ebay gets paid, so they dont care. Blasphemy!!

    How did that go when you filed your complaint with PayPal over those Playstation games?

    Well I might as well never have bid. Same difference. Anyway he did have perfect feedback with an established account back to 2002. But now that he lied to me and hasn't replied to my last email calling him out I'd never send him any money. The auction is over , I bid and I lost. I can move on, it was a big deal for a day or so but honestly its the norm for NES sellers these days.

    I would never have bid. Why bid on an auction that does not accept paypal? Check/money order provides no safety for you.




    But assuming I did bid, YES I'd give him the money if he agrees to sell the goods -'cause I'm protected by paypal & credit cards if he decides to steal the money & not deliver. Plus I'm obligated to pay.

    Not so

    http://pages.ebay.com/help/policies/...rformance.html

    Seller Non-Performance


    When a seller lists an item on eBay, and a buyer bids for and wins that item, the seller and buyer have entered into a contract. Both members are expected to honor that contract. In accordance with that contract, the seller may not:

    Fail to deliver an item for which payment was accepted.

    Significantly misrepresent an item by not meeting the terms and item description outlined in the listing.

    Refuse to accept payment for an item at the end of a successful sale.

    Refuse to accept a buyer’s PayPal payment using a credit card if the seller included the PayPal logo in the listing which signifies the seller will accept PayPal payments. Sellers are not permitted to state in their listings that PayPal payments made via credit card will not be accepted.

    Violations of this policy by a Seller may result in a range of actions, including:

    Listing cancellation

    Limits on account privileges

    Account suspension

    Forfeit of eBay fees on cancelled listings

    Loss of PowerSeller status

    Referral to Law Enforcement

    A buyer who believes that a seller has not honored a contract should read the Additional Information section below to understand what remedies are available to the buyer.
