Here's an email I just received for a second chance offer on Maxwell's cover-ful Jade Hare (though it wasn't from Maxwell):

"You expressed interest in an item titled "The Jade Hare" (Item # 5939202063)by bidding, however the auction has ended with another member as the high bidder. In compliance with eBay policy, the seller is making this Second Chance Offer to you at the price of your last bid. The seller has issued this Second Chance Offer because either the winning bidder was unable to complete the transaction or the seller has duplicate items for sale. If you accept this offer, you will be able to exchange Feedback with the seller and will be eligible for eBay services associated with a transaction, such as fraud protection. To purchase this item, don't reply to this mail, just contact the seller at [email protected] To see this item, click on the following page: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 02063&rd=1 To learn more about Second Chance Offer go to: Electronics, Cars, Fashion, Collectibles, Coupons and More Online Shopping | eBay Mid Georgia (eBay Member)"

Yeah, I think I'll go right ahead and send him my credit card information via e-mail.  Some people, geez...   :wink:

Follow-up email states action has been taken (and they are shut down I hope and assume).  I have been tempted however to follow-up and express interest in the hopes of actually finding out who they are.
