    eBay sucks.

    Sooo many idiots bidding and emailing asking me to "cancel" their bid. WTF. Don't bid if you don't want the item.

    I've been thinking of putting something like this in my auctions ,I get so tired of these *******s wanting a bid canceled or winning a auction and then not paying for it and ignoring me !

    "please bid VERY carefully ! do NOT bid on my item unless you are sure you want it and secondly will pay for it if you win ! I will report non paying winning bids to ebay !!"

    So some 0-feedback tool snipes my auction even though it says NO 0 feedback bids and asked questions without even reading the item listing/description, and is now refusing to pay. I love it. I ****ing hate ebay. What a giant waste of ****ing time.

    What are you trying to sell?

    Stopped using ebay when they supported the seller who sold me pirated hard-to-find dvd's and refused to take action against him and I gave them indisputable proof

    1st gen iphone, nearly perfect condition, 1.1.4 unlocked w/ 2 cases and a headphone adapter. the auction went up to 376...the next highest bid was 371 and this idiot bid w/ out reading ANYTHING. he then sent an email asking q's that were already answered and goes "i'll pay for it when i get answers" -- no response since i replied w/ "answers"

    I'll give the guy some time. There's a possibility that I'll be totally wrong.

    I put this in every one of my auction just like this in red bold,that way if I don't get the funds or at least hear from the winning bidder in 3 days,I send them a email stating that they will not get the item and do not send any funds,and if they do send funds I return it asap to them,then I sell it to someone else and report that flakey bidder to eBay in 7 days.

    when I am asked to end an auction early,I never do ! I have found that never works out.


    this also helps with a lot of stupid email questions like,
    what forms of payment do you take?
    will you ship to egypt?
    is that the actual item in the picture?
    blah blah blah...



    WILL SHIP TO USA ONLY

    I ONLY ACCEPT PAYPAL FOR PAYMENT

    PAYMENT MUST BE RECEIVED WITHIN 72 HOURS FROM END OF AUCTION

    WHAT YOU SEE IN PICTURE IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU GET
