I think this is the appropriate place to put it because its a venting post, so i had my old bike on ebay to sell it had been on there for 10 days and no bids, had a few emails from a bloke, who ended up bidding.. and then one guy bid after him and won. Contacted the buyer let him know i gotta book the roadworthy in and he can pick it up after that so its a fresh 28 day roadworthy... got a phone call from him about 3 hours later, to apologise he isn't actually buying the bike.. because it turns out his 12 year old son had been bidding on a shitload of bikes.. because he wanted one. Now obviously i'm not the only victim here, but i was mighty pissed off.. i wait 10 days the bike sells and the blokes kid ends up being a smart ass bidding on all the bikes he wants.. clearly not knowing the repercussions. why are you letting your kid on your ebay acc in the first place? its just not fair.. you expect someone to bid and buy and actually come pick it up... i accepted the guys apology but i said to him you know.. this is bullshit.. there must be some sort of law where if you bid on an auction you buy it whether you meant to or not, just like if you were at an auction house. so i've emailed the other bidder and hopefully he still wants it. lucky i didn't get the roadworthy done before it was sold.. $100 end of rant. anyone else had this issue before?
