I entered a auction for a 1928P Peace dollar. At the last second I won it for $202.57 at 4:58. At 5:02 I received a congrats on my purchase from seller (probably a automatic thing). At 5:02 I also received a e=mail from seller saying;" hi,
inform you that my son changed his mind to keep this peace 1928 coin. please don't send the money. do you agree we cancel this transction." Well the money was already sent. I don't waste time paying for what I bought.
I wrote him back "You have got to be kidding me. Just because the amount did not meet your expectation is no reason to cancel the sell. This will not look good on your feedback." He sent the money back minus the tranaction fee, of course that won't fly. He sent a request for cancelation of transaction which I declined. What happens now. Anyone experience such a mess?

Do not agree and ask for a breakup fee of $10% of the deal value.

Actually, whenever you bid on eBay and/or win, you are under a legal contract to deliver. I would say to the seller sorry, but a sale is a sale. I've paid, and now you have to ship it. I'm sorry, but you are under legal contract to complete the transaction.

there is actually nothing anyone can do, even eBay will tell you the same thing if you were to contact them they would say they can not make someone sell you an item you were high bidder on. Taking it to court would cost more than the coin is worth unless someone just wanted to make a point with sellers and had money to burn. The taking off the fees is seriously uncalled for, why should you have to pay because he backed out of the sale. That is one thing I wouldn't stand for at all. I don't think there is much you will be able to do about the other though

Wow that really stinks. I have made sales and auctions (not on ebay though) where I was not exactly happy with the total received and recently actually sold an interesting triple punched coin by accident. I can't imagine just trying to reneg on the sale.

There should be rules on ebay to enforce completed sales. just not right.

Paypal fees are refunded when a payment is refunded. Don't know why he deducted them.

i agree with wd1040 I have sold some things on ebay that I was not happy with the final price but I am still going to send you the item that's the chance I take with the auction and I would expect another seller to do the same. if he did't want it to go below a certain price he should of put a reserve on it.

Well the seller wormed his way out of the deal. Refunded the money but gave me a song and dance how he was going to teach his son a lesson (yeah right). I don't think he understood what I was writing. Had to give him a negative, now from 100 down to 99.4. Still not happy,, wanted the coin.

OH! I guess that says it. I'll be staying away from this seller.

Well I've been on e-bay for a couple years now and only had two weird experiences, not to bad I guess. It's just that I hate waiting till the last 2 seconds and winning the bid and then something like this happens.
