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?

Ciaoo

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

The way ebay seems to work at the moment is that if you threaten or even imply that you will neg a seller they will remove any negs you leave for that seller no matter how justified. You can neg a seller but if you tell them you are going to neg them it won't stick. Over something like refusal to sell I'd just note the name of the seller, not buy from them again and let it go.

Aia's issue isn't sitting well with me.  Some of you all are much better at this stuff than me, but am I correct if in recalling the Grolm posting about his auctions in classifieds, and now the post has been removed?  Checking his post history, shows 10 posts made but only 5 remain.  I'm not really sure, did he remove his Acaeum ad at some point, suggesting the cancelled sale was deliberate.  Could someone confirm if I'm mis-remembering.  If not, that behavior is really bad form.

Don't know what one of these might sell for another time, I wouldn't sell out my credibility for the sake of a few bucks on one sale.

Aia, can you post the seller's details so we know to avoid him?  Unless of course the item turns up.

Ok before my first alert here on the shady dealers the classified of the grolm was still on our boards...  Of course i find it reasonable that he removed it since he felt guilty for his behaviour.

Details of there seller are here:  eBay listings

The auction wherr i had problems is a couple of posts above the current one.

Now, i am in a corner as in the resolution center he posted his request of cancellation and i can either press the button for the acceptanve or wait util my acceptance will be automatically considered if i do not press the button for it... This is what i call an efficient end-to-end process ...

hmmm.. I don't know which way you should go on the ebay resolution. One thing I know for certain is that ebay is not in anyone's corner except for themselves. I would not keep your hopes on whether ebay will do the right thing.

I do recall seeing posts in the classifieds that Grolm put up. However, I think past classifieds posts will be erased/fall out of the list after a while as more and more new classified posts are created. There's either a time-limit on each classified post or there's a fixed number of posts. Foul or someone can clarify that.

Ok just to be extremely straight and honest: that post has less than 1 month of life...  Theauction ended on april 3 and he posted it nearly at the beginning, hence one week beforehand...

This is the post
