Crazy! I think I will buy one just to see what happens!

Edit: I bought all of them.


They have 99.7% positive feedback with tons of items sold....maybe they were just cleaning house!

He refunded my purchase today Said they were supposed to be $41 apiece and he can't sell them that low. "wups"

Maybe I'll see if he'll sell me one for half off.

You can force that issue with Ebay, or give him 7 negative feedbacks.

I once bought a really professional Simpson meter that worked perfectly for 3.95!

The guy marked it at that price with no reserve, then after a week, no one bought it, so i got it.

He got upset with me that I didn't want to let him cancel the deal.

The meter had been there on sale for a week and no one bid but me.

Is that MY fault?

I told him he should have put a reserve on it, or started the price higher.

He was careless and not well informed and that was that.

Ebay says: a contract is a conttract.

I think you should negotiate.

If YOU made a mistake, would he cut you slack? I bet not, because
" business is business."

Definately contact Ebay as their auctions are absolute...seller doesn't have a no sale option that he is attempting to exercise. Nothing may come of it other than the seller being booted off of Ebay but he should honor the contract.

I wouldn't be a jerk about it, it was obviously a mistake. If you *need* a hood pad, cut a deal with him for one at-cost

Workin on it, he doesn't seem very willing to negotiate.

Be fair. We all make mistakes. You didn't rely on getting them at that price, and you're not out anything. Think Karma.
