Well, I was the high bidder on one of the DS9 gencon promos (+ ships) for less than 100 dollars (not that it would have stayed that way). The seller canceled the listing and re-listed it as a buy it now price for 175 dollars. Unfortunately, that is a violation of ebay policy and I did report it.

You mean "FORTUNATELY" that is a violation of eBay policy. Good job on reporting that and posting it here.

Yes. That is correct. Unfortunately for him/her I guess.

I hope it ins up not selling. eBay should make higher penalties for that kind of thing. I have bought things at a low price like that and never got them. Then two or three days later the same person has the items listed.

Anyone notice the 6 identical S'gorn auctions? This is getting ridiculous.

That happens a lot. I saw it with the Ti’Mur from the collective op.

Now that a Gorn release was announced, they want to dump them before the price tanks.

Sort of announced. So far I've only seen that ship list posted and reposted around the internet.

I was watching that auction out of curiosity and noticed that it had ended/been relisted. As someone who has had to jump through hoops to get a buyer to pay, I feel your pain.

If it's not something like this, it's the folks who message you and want to work out "a deal" outside of eBay. It's exactly this reason that I politely decline and finish the auction.
