Buying from e'Bay

Well, I was watching this auction, and it was about to end a few hours ago. Anyways, I came home to place a bid on it, and bam, it said the auction has been removed. But I also looked at the seller's profile. It says that his account has been removed. He had been a member since 2002 and had about 600 feedback, all of which were positive.

I thought for e'Bay, there was a wait period after your final transaction before you account was canceled, so that all transactions are made sure to be completed?

This really bugs me, as it was a really cool RG that I wanted...

Re: Buying from e'Bay

Sometimes in those cases someone has either hacked his account with a fishing thing or someone has sold an item as a 2nd Chance by a scumbag scammer, and the original account was suspended.

I had a Les Paul for sale last year, and when it didn't sell, almost everyone who bid on it emailed me saying they got a 2nd Chance Offer and asking if I was serious (one guy for like 500 bucks when the highest bid was over 1500 and didn't meet the reserve). So, there's a chance the guy seller will get everything straightened out and relist th guitar.

Hmm, so even if they are suspended, it will say that they aren't a registered user?

I was watching that one too. He got turned in for shill bidding his own auction. It was so obvious. e'Bay killed off his account for shilling.

How do you know for sure that he got turned in for shilling? Just curious.

Because I know who turned him in and examined his shill bidding. It was really obvious and stupid.

Oh I see. Oh well, so much for that

I wish the seller wouldn't have done that...
