Yes, that really irritates me with ebaY's second chance offer.rsinige,Mar 24 2014 wrote: My only experience of this was when I bid just over £100 for a Beatles single. When I bid the record was at the starting price of £4.99. I didn't win the record as a last minute bid came in and beat mine by a fiver. Obviously I don't know what the Max was but I lost the auction. Within minutes of the auction ending I had an email from the seller stating the winner couldn't complete and I like the record for my maximum bid of the £100+ I bid !!!! In principle I declined cos I smelt a rat!!
Oh the record was a push out made in France Hello Goodbye!!!!
I've got principals, wish I didn't! Ho hum!!!
I saw this first hand last week and it was weird to see.I was only watching the item but all of a sudden the price kept going up £4 at a time until the bidder became top and then his last bid vanished.You feel a bit shocked like you are seeing a crime like someone smashing a shop window and running off with some jewellery but are not sure what to do. I meant to get the sellers Id and post it on here but forgot to save to my watch list.It was cheeky to say the least. I have also won an auction this way and refused to pay.The seller wasn't happy till I said about the dodgy bids and he quickly cancelled the auction and even gave me positive feedback lolRockySassoon,Mar 24 2014 wrote:
This week I had the case of someone trying to outbid me during the last few minutes in the smallest possible steps - then as he realised he went past my bid, he withdrew his last bid during the last two seconds, leaving me as the "lucky winner", ha ha...
