    Default Deadbeat! @%&(!!

    I use a selling assistant since I have so little time and zero camera skills- this allows me to recoup some money and is a way for my wonderful friend to earn some money.
    So I sell a black GST with gold HW in pristine condition. Buyer doesn't respond. My seller contacts her, after several days and guess what her response is?
    We know we have several choices:
    A. I didn't know my little brother/ baby daughter/ whoever got into my ebay account and bid on this.
    B. I lost my job.
    C. Suddenly my car broke down and I'm facing costly repairs.
    D. My son/ DH/ sister/ whoever, had emergency surgery and I can't pay.

    My buyer chose option D. and I'm so disappointed.....
    Do we have a deadbeat - block this bidder column here?

    One of the reasons I love Ebay. It's all about the buyer.

    Arrgh! So disappointing! I had that when I was trying to sell my gaucho on ebay. Someone bid for it and then wrote and said, she's a college student and someone had bid on the bag as a joke when she went to the toilet and left her laptop on a desk in the library. Errr, weird enough to be plausible?

    They could be telling the truth?

    No, I am sorry we don't. Ebay offers you the option to block and cancel bids from members you do not wish to sell to.

    No chance, I used to be a big seller on ebay and the amount of times I heard "my sister, baby, friend, dad, dog, college buddy", got into my ebay account and bid on this by mistake.
    The bottom line is people see something pretty and get itchy trigger finger then realise they actually dont really want what they bid on or dont have the dough to pay for it. We've all won something on ebay and realised we dont REALLY want to pay for it.

    the buyer has buyer's remorse. just file a NPB report and block them.

    My selling assistant (and friend) did file an NPB but I kinda was anxious to sell the purse and more importantly ..... make a little money!
    Back to square 1.
    Since I did obsess unhealthily over what the deadbeat did, I looked at her stats just a bit, something I don't normally do, and I see she has won several small items from different sellers, gets her feedback but can't be bothered to ever do feedback for anyone in return.
    She's just a thoughtless person, is what she is. She doesn't even deserve my GST so here you go, Deadbeat, I gotta special place for you here.....

    This reminds of a time once when I was leaving my house to go to school and there was nobody home and my key broke in the lock. There was no way that I was going to leave the house unlocked so I waited for 2 and a half hours for a locksmith to show up. When I finally got to school and told the teacher my story, she didn't believe me of course and I could see that she had changed her opinion about me. And it was all true!!! So, the point of my story is: you can never really know!

    Welcome to the deabeat bidder club.

    There are no ways to avoid them so might as well just forget them.

    My 8 year old son bid $555.09 on a Star Wars Lego set he wanted. !! Only time I ever used that excuse AND it was true. I was frantic because I didn't want to pay for something like that. Ebay wouldn't help because the auction ended in less than 12 hours. Thankfully I finally got ahold of the seller and he was very nice. He still made very good money on the auction. needless to say, he did not receive the item that was at the top of his wish list for Christmas. It really does happen. But that was the only time in 10 years that I had a false bid placed.

    LOL! My dad (who is NOT very computer literate at all) once accidentally bid $2,000 on a knife that he meant to bid $20 on It was quite funny, but we just did a bid retraction and placed a bid for the correct amount. It wouldn't have been funny if some crazy person decided to put in a high bid of an outrageous amount and my dad got stuck paying that much.
