    Is the Peterman one the same one that you offered before at $50 and $90?

    So you welched on the deals you previously had? You offered items for sale. You set the price. Several members on at least two separate tries of yours to sell the same item responded that they were willing to buy, and you didn't follow through.

    I completely agree with Carter and the others on the earlier post that this type of activity ought to lead to suspending the user. If a user doesn't follow through to complete a sale, or doesn't pay up on Ebay, they're banned. It's breach of contract.

    With respect, the first inquiry backed out. The second gentleman informed me of the grave mistake I was making, and all other potential buyers I told the item was pending. In short, I never sold it and now it's being re-listed.

    I had no "contract" with anyone. I may sell to whom I wish. Was I ignorant in listing a quality briefcase for $50 to begin with? Yes, I was. We aren't all perfect. However, I have good feedback with all the people I've dealt with on here. If you want members names for conformation I'd be more than happy to provide them.

    Regardless, the briefcase has been listed on ebay. It goes for what it goes for. Whether the auction ends at $50 or $500-- I will sell to the highest bidder.

    So... after the second guy warned you off, you told everyone else in the queue that "the item" (I take this to mean the sale?) was pending, even though the first buyer backed out?

    Yeah, actually you did have a contract. You offered to sell it at a specified price, someone offered to buy it at that price and then you backed out fo the deal. You welched on the deal that time. You again listed it and had others ready to buy and welched on the deal a second batch of refusals to honor your offer.

    But if you have them listed at Ebay - why are you then trying to sell them here as well at the same time? Isn't it a TOS violation at Ebay to list items for sale in more than one venue?

    But in any case...it's bad form at the very least.

    It's not for sale here anymore. I just edited it.

    And yes, I'm aware I made **** poor decision to list for what I did and then backtrack. However, I never committed to sell to anyone nor did I didn't screw anyone over. Both of which have happened to me before.

    Come on, give this guy a break! Just because someone is in a 'queue' to buy, doesn't mean the seller has made any agreement with them. Unless they spoke directly about the sale of the item and had at least come to a verbal agreement, the seller should be able to do what he or she wants! I don't know the details of this whole thing, but I'm guessing the rest of you guys don't either. But maybe I'm wrong here as well...
