Default eBay Seller to Avoid

Hey everyone, so I won a 2016 Rookies & Stars Peyton/Archie Manning Dual auto last week in auction form. Wake up the next morning and I have a payment reminder from him, not even 12 hours after the auction ended.

Get home from work, check my email, and he had cancelled my purchase about an hour before, not even 24 hours after the auction ended, citing “damage”.

I sent him a message and asked him why because I still wanted the card and was just about to pay for it and he says the card has “damage” but will still sell it to me (for what I won it for). I just told him to keep the card and that I don’t wanna deal with him.

Seller’s name is: emperorlemur

At least he didn't just send you the damaged card and make you go through the pain of returning and waiting 10 days to get your money back!

True. But i am fairly certain the card had no damage.

He originally listed it for $500 (i think) BIN OBO. Didn’t sell. Then auctioned it & put a reserve on it. The reserve was apparently $150 and that’s what I won it for.

Obviously i can only speculate, but I’m assuming he wanted more out of it, didn’t get it, so made up the “damage” scenario. But this is just speculation.

Then why not take him up on his offer to honor the price?

Because he said the card was damaged?

I wouldn’t wanna take the risk to buy it, if it were in fact damaged, and then have to return it which would take even longer (and if it were damaged, why would i buy it for the price i won it at? The damage wasn’t stated in the auction so it apparently “happened” in the 20-22 hours after i won it).

I don't think his end of the deal included buying a damaged card. Seems to me the seller was just testing the market on his card.

I get that. I was responding to OP's contention that he didn't believe the card was damaged at all.

At that point, I'm pretty sure the seller would purposely damage the card before shipping, since they claimed it was damaged.

And then the seller gets a damaged card back after the return which kills the value the seller thought he/she had. I don't believe the card was damaged like has been previously said.

And that’s your right to believe that. But i don’t believe it was ever damaged. There was no damage stated in the description and I’ve sold thousands of cards and have never damaged a card from the time i sold it until the time i shipped it.

Here’s the awesome description, btw:

What I was trying to say is why not pay for the card at the price he was going to honor. Best case you get the card you bought at the price you wanted to pay. Worst case your return it for damage.

Going off of the fact you don't think it is damaged

If it were in fact damaged, I’m not gonna waste my time paying the full price I won it for, then get it in the mail and if it’s truly damaged, send it back. Too much of a headache that I don’t feel like dealing with.
