I'm not sure if I'm dealing with a 10-year old or just an adult acting like a 10-year old. He won an auction then decided he didn't have to pay. And "eBay isn't going to do a thing to him".
So if you don't want to have your time wasted block him from bidding on your auctions. I did.
Truly it's not a big deal. Guy changed his mind and doesn't want to pay for something. No big deal to me. But there were some other folks bidding on that item and he's also wasted their time plus ultimately denied someone else the chance to win something they wanted.
But the thumbing his nose at eBay undermines the entire premise of how eBay is supposed to work for both sellers and bidders alike.
As a seller how do you feel confident your item is actually sold when the clock winds down to 00:00. A week later you're still waiting to be paid and dealing with someone effectively going Nah, nah, you can't touch me.
As a buyer how do we feel knowing some guy is going to bet the house all the while knowing he's going to back out in the end. Second Chance offers reflect your highest bid. So you potentially end up paying a lot more because someone doesn't play by the rules.
I for one would like to see some changes made to eBay's policy on how they deal with deadbeat buyers. Let's call it the Louis Rule.
Ive had this happen a couple times. Last time someone bid say $43 and didn't pay. So I offered it up to the next highest bidder who was at $42. Not a big deal. I do file complaints. Since you can't really do much to deadbeat buyers thats about it.
