Yes if I had the time I would have bought it at that price and advertised on here (surely got to be worth £100+)

He is well dodgey.
It was originally up with a BIN price, so I grabbed it. Seller emails me half an hour later saying it was a mistake and he'd already relisted (at a higher price) but he would do me a deal.
Turns out the deal wasn't much of a deal as he had it in his head that his stickers -which are for a carbon lobo frame- were worth loads. Obviously not.
He had the auction running for 3 hours before I put my bid in. That would've given him plenty of chance to alter it.
He also had the same frame on 3 different auctions at one point.

So I thought bugger it. Left the neg feedback (which knocked him down to 50%)
Fortunately I never had time to hand over any money. :evil:

Probably worth a complaint to Ebay customer service.

I have been very impressed with them when I've spotted dodgy
goings on (2 people suspended within 24hrs of my mail !).

Not worth the hassle now. That Lobo is long gone.
Will try and remember it for next time though. Hopefully serious bidders look at his feedback first. To have only had 2 auctions and one went sour doesn't look good.
