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

Yes, pretty sure I saw that post... I think the Grolm deleted his classified post around the time he chose to stiff Aia.  Sad.

yes, I remember seeing that too.

why not just start the bidding at the lowest price he'd be happy to sell for or just stick a reserve on it? I know ea of those costs more than a .99cent auction, but it would easily avoid a situation like this. Seems very unfair to Aia.

Lets set aside my negative experience...  At the end of the day i dint lose any money, the real point here is that i absolutely want to mark this seller as a shady dealer for future and less prepared buyers... What pisses me off is that ebay.de will likely cancel my neg and he will look like as a perfect seller after the "resolution center" bulls***t...  This is the most annoying part of the event!
What could i do more than what i tried so far??

Just got a note from eBay about this seller:

** eBay auction listing blocked by The Acaeum.  Seller is on our blacklist **

Look familiar? Supposedly, their account was "accessed by a third party" and may have been used for nefarious purposes. I guess that is what they call it when you attempt to pull a scam.............

I agree with your assessment regarding this EBay Seller.  Buyers beware.

I have no words.  Despite the odds, did it at least arrive unscathed?

Sometimes you just can't seem to find the right box laying around the house...  Most of us will go find one....  Unreal!
