So back on Jan 29, I bought this:
GIJOE ROLLING THUNDER WITH LIGHTNING ROCKETS GI JOE - eBay (item 380099954382 end time Jan-29-09 17:07:32 PST)
it was paid for within 24 hours of the auction. A week passed and I got no shipping information from the seller, so I asked if/when it might ship. Nothing rude in my tone, I just asked.
I got back a response that the Rolling Thunder had been damaged beyond repair and that I'd be getting a refund. Unfortunate, but fair enough. Another week or so passed and I finally got my refund from a second email account.
Then, a second auction popped up from this froshe85 featuring the same item. Well, I felt a little burned because I figure he just didn't get what he wanted from the item the first time around and was trying his luck again. The starting price now being significantly higher than the 35 bucks I paid. I watched the auction end and sure enough he got more money.
Now this shows up.
I find it both funny and sad. If you want a certain amount from an auction just start the price there. I wish I could go back and change my feedback and half a mind to report the auction anyway.

That's just pathetic.
This is his third time selling the vehicle? Is there any way you can report his ass for dishonesty? EBay should have all the records of these sales, and since they are so focused on buyer satisfaction now... you may nail the SOB.

Yeah... report this suckhole. Good memory, and way to keep checking. (sometimes you just get that feeling that the guy was pulling your leg)
Thanks for the heads up.

eBay is full of scams these days. I got so many rants for that site. The problem that really gets me these days is that ever since eBay changed the negative feedback policy that prevents sellers from leaving negative feedback for deadbeat flake buyers, I get a lot of people that bug out of paying.

At first I was going to say that it was his perogative to sell it or not BUT if a buyer were to bid on an item they enter into a binding contract to pay for said item if they win. I think the same should be said in reverse. If a buyer wins an item then the seller is obligated to sell it to them at the price they won it for. Unfortunately, eBay cannot prove this is the exact same item for sale in all three auction and not three different toys...
