I always thought traders had to be transparant on Ebay, but it seems not.
I recently listed my car on Ebay and it attracted a lot of interest locally and finished at £620.
I was surprised to see that someone 150 miles away had bought my little car.
I got in touch with the buyer and he said he would send a driver down on the train to collect it.
I met the driver at my local train station and he said I will just appraise the car.
Hang on, I thought you bid to buy? He went around the car picking up all little niggles and doing the old plumbers drawing breath through his teeth thing.
He then said £500, I said what ! He said my boss buys theses cars of Ebay and I just collect them and I have to apraise them and then knock money off.
He would not budge on the price and said if I dont sell at £500 he will leave it as he had another car to look at.
I feel this practice is wrong as the buyer bought the car at the winning bid price then offered me £500 on collection.
So be aware who is bidding on your car as maight be a trader looking to haggle you down to make himself a quick buck off your loss.
This is the last time I sell car on Ebay.
