So I've been following a UK based guitar builder on Instagram for a while. I've liked his stuff for a while now but not wanting to waste anyones time, I've admired from afar, just like posts etc. So last night, a photo is posted of a rather nice guitar that turns out this guy is eBaying, so I follow the link and low and behold, it's up for £250 with a few bids and less than 24 hours to go. Fast forward today and near the auction end time, I slam in my max bid and wait for the minutes to tick by and result, I win with my £352 bid. Less than 10 mins later, the auction is cancelled and said item is relisted with a starting bid of £600 followed by a message saying:"Hi,Sorry to have cancelled the transaction for the (guitar) I was expecting to get more for it and simply cannot take so little for it when it cost me almost double that to make it.The guitar has been relisted at a higher price - reflecting the minimum I can take for it - if you're still interested at all?Kind regards, Guitar makers name here."What grips me the most is there was no reserve or buy it now to stopping me bidding ? The original Instagram post has now been removed and he's saying it back up for sale even though it sold.
I recently bought a very rare album for a very good price (with Buy It Now) on Ebay. After paying, the money was refunded with no explanation - when I asked, it was “because the CD had a bad crack in it that we hadn’t noticed”.Hmmm... hadn’t noticed when it was described as playing perfectly, or hadn’t noticed until they saw some other ending prices of the same album?I’m now expecting the seller to coincidentally find another copy of this very rare album, but with a price about five times as high.
