I recently won a pair of Manitou 3s from a German ebayer.
The confirmation and invoice came through ok and I managed to translate enough using babelfish to sort out the wire transfer.
Problem is, I just found out since that ebay.de has a real issue with bid sniping - and I sniped!!!
The seller has gone all quiet on me now and my money has gone.

Are there any German members on here who would mind translating a brief email for me so that I can send it on, explaining my position and asking if he has received payment etc?

Please PM me if you can help. Thanks :D

(I fear that this is going to be one of those "hard" lessons!)

I dont see how sniping has anything to do with your money dissapearing!
If the stem doesnt turn up then the sellers in the wrong, not you!

Sorry, not being clear - I just suspect sniping may have "cheesed" him off.
I know he should be sending the goods any way, I just wanted to check with him.
