I got a big Ebay prob with a seller

I won a dash cover on ebay for 11.50 and the I emailed the guy to say that I would like to pick it up in order to avoid the 10$ shipping charge. He then wrote back saying that he didnt get the money he wanted and didnt want to sell it. Now he is bitching because he screwed himself. Is there anything I can do to screw this guy in as many ways as possible. BTW his seller name and maybe real name is Frank Bejan

I appreciate any help

If he didn't have a reserve price, he has to sell it to you for the amount you won it for. Tell him that, if he still doesn't go for it, either report him to ebay, or negotiate prices with him and report him afterwords.

Selling on ebay and to 2002 people in general is trust driven.

A bad reputation preceeds guys like him-eventually. I believe

your only recourse is to give him negative feedback in both

forums. So far his feedback isn't bad. He may be motivated to

avoid another negative. However, he may give you negative

feedback also-even if you did nothing wrong. I guess I would

put it on the line to him-honor the deal or suffer the

consequences.

enough to file a small-claims action against him. The auction is a legally binding contract. He might not let you pick it up if he doesn't want it done that way, but even for 21.50 that's still not a bad deal. Who makes these covers anyway?

....if this just gets ignored YOU may be the next victim. That's

what feedback is all about. I, for one, think this unethical

behavior should be dealt with.

HE IS OBLIGATED TO HONOR THE DEAL .

I AM FAMOUS FOR LISTING NICE STUFF FOR A PENNY WITH

NO RESERVE . MY STUFF ALWAYS SELLS BUT EVERY NOW & THEN I DO SHIP PARTS FOR ONE CENT .

IT IS ALL PART OF THE GAME & I ALWAYS LIVE UP TO MY END OF THE DEAL .

HE NEEDS TO GROW UP OR GET OFF E-BAY - IF HE CAN'T PLAY BY THE RULES HE SHOULD GET OUT OF THE GAME .

The ad says, "shipping and handling $ 10.00", which to me is a fixed price. In eBay world the sum you owe is the bid plus $ 10.

If you wanted to pick it up and not pay for shipping, you should have emailed prior to the end of the auction and ask about this.

There was an eBay item a few months ago on this board where the same issue applied ... that's my $ .02 worth

I emailed the guy back saying that i would be willing to pay his 10 dollar shipping charge to ship the cover across town and this was 2 days ago and still nothing. I really appreciate all the help ive been getting. Small claims is a good idea. I feel it is my obligation to fix this so it doesnt happen to anyone else.

as well as save them to disk. Also print the ebay auction page and the ebay rules so that you can document everything to show the judge. Remember is small-claims you can't get

damages, which to me would be what you have to pay to get a set somewhere else plus all court costs. Actually, this might be a case that you could earn money at by seeing if Judge Judy would take the case. Seriously, as online auctions are of interest to the viewers and very topical. I think you would also make money at it too, above and beyond the normal small-claims case. Plus you would also set a precedent you could threaten any future ebayers who try and pull something similar. I don't know how you'd serve the guy other than using a Marshall, so I hope you were/will be able to get his residence address before you make him aware you will pursue the matter. Document everything carefully.
