Don't know if this guy comes here on RB but he is a complete Image

Ebay is a place for bargins to be had from 99p to £500, but when you bid on an item and think your a winner as the seconds count down only for the item to disappear
and then Ebay says item is no longer available...FFS He has done this on all his items, What gets me if he ain't willing to let the item go for the start bid, he shouldn't list it.

Anyway this is the guy and beware of him! As a friend off here says 'his ebay name fits him'.....''justintime''.... what to withdraw from the sale! Image

Evenin' all,

I have to agree with the Right Honourable Mr Raleigh - as per the following email from ebay :

"eBay Bid Cancellation Notice - Item

Dear eBay Community Member,
The bid that you entered for the item (121113141053) has been cancelled. You can view the reason provided for the cancellation by selecting the (bid history) link from the individual item page.

Please be cautious if you are contacted about purchasing this item after the bid has been cancelled and as always, avoid paying for your eBay item using instant wire transfer services through Western Union or MoneyGram as these payment methods are unsafe when paying someone you do not know.

Regards,
eBay "

To say this is unsetting is a slight understatement. The items were brake blocks but this seems to be outside the 'spirit' of ebay - saying that i suspect that the spirit has just about gone! Not a chance of a bargain with sellers able to do this and without purchasing, there is not the opportunity to give bad feedback.

Have a great weekend all RBers,

Richard

The kick in the teeth is.... the brake blocks was put back on but at an higher price this time, wonder if they get taken off again :facepalm:

New listing of the blocks...

Old listing of the blocks..........

Or should I bid and see what happens, then retract the bid saying entering wrong amount! Shoes on the other foot then.

I agree, if he doesn't want to sell them for less than a certain price, then her should start them higher, or use BIN... I'm sure there's not an honest ebay user out there who hasn't lost out because things they thought would go for a decent price only sold for the starting bid. It's happened to me, and I never once thought about cancelling the sale, even though I knew I would have won more had I given it away!

Maybe you should buy the blocks anyway, then leave him some negative feedback... he only has 43 votes, so one negative will knock him back quite a bit :)

What I've done is put ALL his items on my 'watch list' and I'm going to see if any get took off
within the last minutes of the sale, Most likely report back on this thread what he/she did.

Wonder why this seller feels the need not to show pictures of the actual pads! Hmmm! Worn badly maybe?

Author:  Muddy paw [ Sat Jun 01, 2013 7:02 pm ]
Post subject:  Re: Unfair seller on Ebay...Grrrrrrr!

Maybe the pads are worn badly or he's just to thick to understand what the customers want to see but times nearly up and no one's bid :lol: ..

Winning bidding activity with the seller is just 3% So its obviously 'Billy No Mates'

Post subject:  Re: Unfair seller on Ebay...Grrrrrrr!

I'm right about this shit-head :roll:

He ends his items before the listing actually ends! I bet he bites his nails something rotten :!:

''This listing was ended by the seller because the item is no longer available''

I see the seller is listing his 'no longer available' stuff again!!!

Shimano levers & toe clips are back on!

Surly this guy is breaking ebay rules and needs to be sorted!

Post subject:  Re: Unfair seller on Ebay...Grrrrrrr!

Very much stretching the rules - simple to sort - you have the evidence of this seller pulling his sales, simply email ebay and they will look into it. Totally agree with you that these sort of sellers need outing as poor traders.

This is bullshit! Trying to contact ebay that is!! So hard even with all the listing numbers they say they can't accept old invalid listing numbers!FFS

Post subject:  Re: Unfair seller on Ebay...Grrrrrrr!

they make it difficult but the complaints department is here:
eBay UK Ltd, Complaints Department
PO Box 659, Richmond-upon-Thames
Surrey, TW9 1TX

or email - either way it's a bloody minefield, and in the real world what will they do? slap on the wrists and the seller continues on his merry way.

alternatively contact the seller direct and see who this character is and then take his/her answer to ebay and see what they say.

watch and wait for it to be relisted and then report the scumbag to fleabag.

Just add him to your list of blocked sellers.

Why would you want to buy from him.

Not to say I don't agree with you making others aware. By all means we should all block him.

Fair point mate and a worthy idea as we can't remember all the idiots on the bay so blocking them has got to be a smart move ;) ..

I had the reverse thing happen when I listed my DMR pedals. Bidding ended with the winner getting them for £22 plus £5 post.

Then I get a message from the winning bidder, "Sorry mate, I made a mistake, I meant to type £20 but the phone put in £22."

Really? For the sake of two quid?

I know legally he is bound to pay what he bid, but rather than get into all this with an obvious waste of time, I just withdrew them. He can keep his £20.

They are listed here in the 98> forum, rather they go to an rb'er.

Ebay becoming a joke now.

I had a war on with seller in Germany who said I'd overcharged him on the postage!

Listed a model car and the postage came to £8 to ship to Germany,
The full cost including packing was £8.75p! The seller wanted the 75p
back and sent me dozens of paypal invoices for the 75p, I deleted them
every-time and he even sent me an letter via' email from him, threatening me!!!

I contacted ebay direct and told them my concerns and they looked at my item and
my p&p charges the outer box/labels & the weight! ebay said I've not overcharged and
have told the seller to stop moaning about seventy five pence, Every since then has been blocked.
