I was selling a purse on eBay and it already ended earlier tonight. I was so excited because the ending bid was a good amount. Well I sent the invoice to the winning bidder. She emails me back saying that there was fradulet bidding on the auction and she reported it to eBay. I'm thinking that she just doesn't want to pay and has buyer's remorse. So I email saying that. Then she comes back to further explain herself that her acct. was hijacked and that is why she reported my auction. I apologized after that but she didn't explain that in the beginning email. I later receive an email from eBay stating that my auction was cancelled because of some fradulent bidding or something to that affect. I was so ticked off that this happened to me. I then contacted ebay live help and they weren't very helpful, but my fees were credited back to me. Is it better to do a BUY IT NOW or BEST OFFER anymore with auctions or what?? How can we protect ourselves in cases like this?
