Bought the new Mondo Jaws drop on a Buy it Now auction from this jerk and paid $117.00 immediately (listed as free shipping). An hour later the seller contacts me saying that "he unfortunately didn't get the print" and has to refund my money and tries to cancel the sale.
Original listing I paid for at 8:51 am pst as stated in the auction:
I went to look, thinking, "honest mistake", but then I noticed that the auction he is trying to cancel has already been relisted and has been sold to another bidder at 10:38 am pst.
I call ebay later that day and they inform me that this relisting, unlike the one I paid for first, has NOT been cancelled.
What really happened: the seller realized that he posted the poster on ebay for less than he could have and decided to not honor our agreement, and resold a poster he'd already sold to me for $160 plus $15 shipping ($62.00 more than he originally sold it to me for). There were other similarly priced prints on ebay at the time. By the time I was through dealing with this, anything close to that price was gone as was my chance to get this for under $200.
Add this guy to the list of Sellers to avoid. (They sell Mondo posters and action figures), ID BMattingly32.
Thanks for reading, avoid this guy to avoid similar disappointments. Dealing with unscrupulous sellers like this on ebay is a frustration I hope I can help others avoid.
