I won't buy from that seller as they won't pack well. It is just a priority envelope with books thrown in. First lot all had a nasty corner dings and extra spine creases that weren't in the pictures when i bought them. The picture of that B10 was pretty too, showed up all mangled. Second purchase I requested better packing and they added a small piece of cardboard. Whatever.

I wouldn't say it's shady but only because I've accidentally done the same thing. I was selling a large lot (so many items per week) and when listing items for a particular week I somehow forgot to delete the pictures of one already sold the prior week and I just listed it again as I thought it was part of the new week. Doh! Still lame and I wish I had been more careful.

.  That's a shame, that dealer sold many shrink wrapped items that went well into the $100 and $200 range. I would be extremely upset if I ordered one of those and it came in damaged.

It happens. Twice last year I sold something I couldn't locate, all you can do is apologize and give a full refund. With ebay stock sometimes getting mixed with convention stock, mistakes occur.

This has happened to us also. Feel like a real ass when I can't locate the item.

I literally dropped a high priced item in the mud and stepped on it for good measure while hurrying to my truck to mail it. I'm still not sure the buyer believed my story.  PDT_Armataz_01_04

Oh well, what are you going to do? It's funny because after I initially responded to SH60B, I sold something on the RPG Auctions facebook page and now cannot find the item to save my life. I literally just took pictures of it and now it is gone. I've torn the house down looking for it as I know I didn't accidentally send it anywhere else. Buyer is super nice though and not in any rush so said take a week and see if crops up.

You sure are right about that. My basement is just a long maze of stacks of books and boxes. I think there might even be a cat in there somewhere. My wife wants to know why we even finished the basement if it is just storage....lol.

I once lost a RPGA1 for years....literally, had it in hand one day, and then it was gone. Tore the house apart, looked in umpteen million boxes, shelves, drawers, etc. Figured at one point I either sent it with another order, or accidentally threw it away. Then, one day, I was cataloging some box contents and I found it...it had been turned around, and another module put in the same bag facing forward, with a backing board...so it was completely undetectable unless I physically took the first module out of the bag. Have no idea why I did that, but it was fun to find a RPGA1 that I thought lost for a couple years.

When I was really sick I had to have everything boxed up and moved with me up to Vermont. Now that I've moved back to Delaware I'm still unboxing but everything is completely disorganized. This is amusing for maybe the first few dozen banker boxes, but it loses it savor soon after that.

Her response:


Thanks for your question. This listing was posted a week ago for a 7 day auction, and is ending this evening. I hope that answers your question. Thanks.

Am I wrong again?

What was the question?



Can't imagine why anyone would be upset about someone failing to honor the results of an auction only to relist at a higher starting price than the original final bid.  :roll:

I have smtg similat here:


** expired eBay auction **


I wrote several times via ebay,  i sent pm from here to the seller, i used the messaging system of his website...  Not a single byte of reply... I waited nearly one week for the reply now i am pretty sure he wants to avoid this sale...  I can understand its a bit frustrating seeing an uncommon item going for 1 euro but i cant be blamed if no one else put a bid on it,  it cant be my fault...

What should i do now?

Neg him, of course. That is reprehensible. Also, report him to eBay for not honoring the sale.

Do you wanna laugh?  I wrote him an ultimatum and 10 mins later i got a request from the resolution center in order to cancel the transaction...  I obviously sent him a neg immediately but i have no other option than the acceptance of the request of cancellation...  Now i have two questions:
1 how can i report him as a fraudster on ebay?
2 how cani avoid that my neg will be deleted upon his request of cancellation?
Pls do not tell me to write to ebay support as i always get copy&paste replies with always the same link to the (hated) resolution center...  Any direct link to a specific ebay page to report him?
Thanks a lot!

Ps it might be helpful to create a sticky withsome hints and link to similar problem in order to fight these shady dealers...

Is the seller a member here?  I thought I saw this item before somewhere, maybe in our classifieds
