Dear Folks: This concerns an experience I am having as a buyer, not as a seller. Yesterday I won an auction for a scarf. The opening price was low. There were only two bids and the first one was low as well, so it sold for a small sum. I paid promptly. Today I got an email from the seller pleading ignorance and asking forgiveness and saying that he had really wanted it to sell for about $35, which is nearly $30 more than my bid, because this represents what he paid for it. He also said he was refunding my money, which he promptly did. He has been on ebay nearly 3 years but he hasn't used it much, so his feedback number is low....less than 5, with one neg already. I sent an email noting that we had a contract that he was obligated to honor, and he should use this experience to, in the future, set up his auctions in a manner more satisfying to him, with a higher opening bid or a reserve, for example. I also noted that failing to honor my bid and accept my payment would leave him at risk of neg feedback. If he refuses to sell me the scarf, what is my recourse, beyond the neg feedback option?
