    Default MY Ebay RANT!!! I won an item but apparently its been stolen? READ THIS!!

    Arrrgghhh! Its so annoying.

    I was watching a hedge trimmer a few days ago, emailed the seller asking what they wanted for it as it was local, they said £40, I said no way, so they come back with £25.

    I said I can buy a new one for £25, id be interested at about £10-£15.

    Didnt get a reply.

    Watched the item and then on Monday night saw it was on £3.20 with 25 mins left, thought id sneak a bid in.

    Put a £5 bid, was out bid, then put a £10 bid and I was highest at £7.01.

    20 mins later I WON THE AUCTION!! RESULT!!!

    NOT!!!

    I got an email from the seller 20 secs after winning saying this:

    "hi there i have had to contact all my buyers. i have been away all weekend and my outdoor shed has been broken into all my ebay items have been stolen amongst other things i have just got bk i am genuially so sorry and gutted for people on ebay as you can tell we dont live in the nicest area other people shouldnt be at loss through this thief i am sorry once again".

    PATHETIC!!

    I replied with: "
    I dont believe you. Ill contact ebay in the morning. Funny how you didnt make £25 or over and now its been stolen straight after auction ends!!!".

    The reply I get was:
    "
    dO what you like mate i have to contact 6 other people who won the auction aswell, its pointless making accusations when its not just ebay things i have stolen its other things aswell how do you think we feel !!! i could not end auction because lile i said i had been away all weekend and you can only end a auction and cancell bids 12 hrs before! i got back about a hr before! im really sorru but when you get home and find ur shed has been broken into and u realise exactly what has been stolen. rushing on ebay straight away to revise your item description is not your first priotiry. have you ever had this happwn to you ?? obviously not or u would be more compasionate. i emailed you straight away to explain and i was more than polite and aplogetic. its u that has taken ot on yoursef to start throwing accusations".

    Do I give them benefit of the doubt or do I report them? Seems too much of a coincidence to get an email straight after the end of the auction!!

    Ask for the crime reference number and police station investigating to allow you to cancel the auction

    how can 6 other people have won the auction too? but if he is genuine then youre just causing more aggro - i'd just keep any eye out to see if it gets relisted anytime then persue it etc
