Ok I have been wondering if I should say something or just let it go, I vacillate from one to the other but have now seen a post and all I can think is Karma baby. Ok this is what happened: I had a bird on eggbid, someone who is also a BYC member bid on it, we spoke back and forth via e-mail so there was communication. At the time that person also bid on another bird some one else was selling. Right before the auction ended a second bid came in and won. When I went to contact that person the e-mail did not exist. After a little investigating I am almost 100% sure that the person with the original bid made up the second bid to avoid buying the bird. Now the two of us had spoken through e-mail and BYC and turns out I had bought eggs from them before all of this happened. Anyway there is no reason that this person could possibly have thought I would force the bird upon them had they changed their minds, all that was needed was to tell me. I would have been happy to re-list the bird and let them pull out of the auction with out any $ spent (turs out I sold the bird locally anyway) . Instead they wasted my time with me contacting or trying to contact a fake person, it was annoying. Now turns out that the chooks they did buy are sick (that's the karma part). I contacted the person after the auction just to make sure and told them that the winning bid (just $1 above theirs) was a fake and that by default they had won the auction, no response, big surprise. Now should I confront the person via e-mail? Put a negative feed back on eggbid for them as a buyer Just let it go and say to myself that karma got them back, the only problem with this is I am sure they will do the same to others and my auction was a very low one but it could really mess up someone else selling a more expensive bird if they did the same thing to them. So what do you think?
