I want you guys to beware of this seller: http://myworld.ebay....ithlovepeace777

 

I was trying to get this item: http://www.ebay.com/...cvip=true&rt=nc

 

I was going to bid during the last minute or so, when the seller pulled it the last 5 minutes saying 'no longer available.' I contacted the seller to ask about it, upset about the fact that I couldn't bid. The answer I got was "I was given offers, would you like to give me one?" I offered only a bit more since I didn't have much, but then they demanded $150 more than the listing price, so $350. The seller has two colors, and asked for $300 for the other one, wanting a total of $650.

 

Try to avoid this seller, they want way more than what they list their stuff more, listing to get you interested, then pulling it away to ask for more. It's a shame, too, the price was good enough to me, but to ask for $150 more at the end of auction was a joke. Expect them to cancel your bids if it ends with no bid wars, and then ask you for more money if you really want the item.

It's really surprising since they've been on eBay since February 2008 and have 100% feedback. :o I'm sorry for your loss. :(

Maybe... it was true? I always offer a little bit more by PM before bidding so I don't have to fight and risk losing...

They told me they got a lot of offers. So why they ended it just before the auction ended is beyond me. I have a feeling that if I had bid, they would have cancelled my bid or refunded me the money to get the highest offer. Which to me is shady and just plain unethical--a sale is a sale, eat your losses.

 

Regardless, I say avoid. No use buying from them only to be denied and they ask you to pony up more just to have it. I don't want anyone to fall into that trap.

Your guess is as good as mine. Maybe they sell other things online and get feedback on that instead.
