Good. They actually put pics up this time. The seller was asking $5000 buy it now and starting bid $3000. Looks like a good collection, some nice Melos and Echinos too.

Hmmm, wish I wasn't so broke right now.

I didn't think they could refuse to sell, reserves were supposed to be outlawed awhile ago. How rude!!!

Hang on - isn't the 'buy now' thing a 'legally binding contract'?

I reckon you have grounds for recourse. Go to Ebay and shake the tree, Prickly; the apples should fall...

Oh, and watertrade - your avatar's very cute now! Laughing

Prickly - They are legally bound to sell you the cactus. Contact ebay and let us know how you got on................its not fair as you won them confused

yep... the seller assumes all responsibilities for listing any item, by bidding you are agreeing to a legally bound contract in which you must pay for the item if you are the winning bidder and the seller must send it.

So all that 'legally binding stuff' is just garbage. What about consumer affairs or the police...isn't that fraud?

You should be aloud to contact the police about it. If i was the seller i would have moved the collection by now though.

I hate to suggest it, but maybe some prime-time publicity will emabrrass the non-cooperating parties.

Mention of lawyers and reporters might make them shift their sorry backside.

Might...
