Let Sleeping Cats Lie?
Posted 16 July 2003 - 05:42 PM
This little kitty seems to be doing the rounds. The first time round it was removed "seller ended this listing early because the item is no longer available for sale" a couple of days before the auction was due to end.
It then reappeared a few days later (no changes that I could notice to the start price or description) and second time round it was ended for the same reason with less than 6 hours to the auction end (not sure exactly when during those 6 hours as I was asleep).
Wonder if it will come round again?

The auctions have suddenly ended.
If the auction already has bids then I so don't think it is fair to ask the seller to end the auction.

I was so disappointed.

I suppose on the bright side we all had a bit of excitement at the prospect of getting hold of a rarely seen solid for the collection and we get to keep our money!
Roll on the next lot!!

It's seems like collecting has become cut throat.

Like you I had the page up ready to make my bid & the auction ended. I was so disappointed (after watching it all week) I also emailed the seller who told me she had an offer she could not refuse from a private buyer & as it had not reached it's reserve she didn't think it was going anywhere fast! What rubbish - I told her it was very unfair & unethical particularly as she was obviously an experienced e-bayer & knew the ropes - the real bidding is always in the last couple of minutes. I'm sure I speak for most of us but it really does make a mockery of the whole e-bay system if people can buy & sell like that.

You speak me from the heart - I am absolute your opinion - very annoying!!!
Somewhat completely different(very pleasing)one that I wanted to ask you already for a long time. From where do you know so well German???

Actually I wanted to offer on this sleeping cat. Then I controlled the feedbacks of this seller and decide however not to bid on this item - in order to not let destroy all my good experiences I made on eBey.
That the seller ended this listing again early fits absolutely to his "machinations"!
Have a wonderful day!
