Burned on E-bay
I guy I work wanted sell his wife'* 1998 Toyota 4Runner. He didn't have an Ebay account, so I said I would sell it for him. Placed the ad on Ebay and had no bids but 15 watchers. opening bid was 2k, reserve $3200. A bid came in for 3,000, and a minute later 3,200, from the same guy. This now displayed the reserve price. I was surprised someone would bid so high with 5 days left in the auction, so I checked out the guy. Member of Ebay for 16 months, yet no feedback.
Today I received notice he canceled the bid. Stated he entered wrong bid amount. My guess is uses one screen name to identified reserve price. Now the reserve price is (was) displayed to all.
Changed the ad to state bidders with less than 3 feedbacks must contact me prior to bidding.
Remember when Ebay use to be cheap to sell on and people were sincere..........
