Yes...They sold it for $250....Then relisted it saying they made a mistake??? I thought ebay was a binding contract???
Just because she got in a hurry(like she admits) and used an old template doesnt mean you can back out??? OR does it??? LOL

I thought it was a legal, binding contract too Tom. Why have reserves if you can just say forget and relist it???


Thanks, Phil

Wow, what in the world ? Lets let everyone do that so that they can have a do over. Have a auction that there is no contact or payment now, is the person off the hook?

If I was the buyer I would put my foot down.

The buyer does have *some* recourse, in that they can get eBay to ding the seller, maybe even suspend them. But typically if no money or goods have been exchanged, and the seller doesn't have a bad history, they'll let it slide. No way for them to force the issue, though if the buyer wanted to they could take them to court. It is a contract...

Greed brings out the worst in people, especially when buying and selling.

I see an honest mistake happened when the seller listed it, Right or wrong, I don't see why she should have to sell it for what is an obvious loss. Mistakes happen

Quoted from first auction "All Sales are final", probably only meant to work one way.

I think it's the small things that we do that determine integrity. If that was me and I had made the mistake, I would sell it for the $250.00. Whose mistake is it and what is the right thing to do? It's these moments and the decisions we make during those moments that define us as a person. Only I know my intentions, everyone else judges me based on my actions. In this case only the seller knows their intention, we can only judge them based on their actions. In my opinion the seller is only serving their own purpose. They need to place themselves in the buyers shoes for a moment and then they will quickly realize what is the right thing to do.
KZ1000 I think you looking at this from the sellers point of view. bear in mind it is their mistake. You need to consider this from the sellers perspective. They bid on an item and won it fair and square. This situation was not created by the actions of the buyer but rather the sellers.
Just my 2 cents.

We are talking about a "BUY IT NOW" mistake, It was not an auction format where bids were made and then a seller changed their mind.
I find it very hard to believe that you or anyone else for that matter who meant to start an auction at $250. for a $1000. sign, BUT mistakenly hit the "BUY IT NOW" for $250. would let it sell for the $250. Again Mistakes happen and this seller is not a bad person IMO
