I've been an Ebayer for a couple of years now. I have 171 positive comments on my account - and 1 negative (from a total moron). Today, I've done something I've never done before - I've withdrawn from an auction I won. This was a UK auction for an Asus motherboard. The reasons for my withdrawal are: 1. The auction stated the location to be London, UK - but the user's contact details are actually in Maryland USA. 2. Seller wants payment via E-gold.com. This is not a site I've even heard of before. They trade in gold only. I just don't want to get involved. E-gold.com was not mentioned on the auction. 3. Seller has not responded to my queries on the motherboard. 4. Seller has not responded to my queries about points 1, 2 and 3. I've emailed Ebay about this but have yet to receive a response. Something about this auction just stinks. The seller doesn't even sign emails with their real name. I smell a rat! The seller has a current rating of 1. No doubt he'll give me a negative remark, but he'll get one back which will do him a lot more harm than it will me. Just wanted to vent.
