were you the underbidder?

Never accept any second chance offers without confirming with the seller first. I can't tell you how many people have emailed me asking if I've sent them a second chance offer when I haven't. eBayers who were like 3rd or 4th highest bidders even.:shrugs:

I am the underbidder. I'm actually the 3rd highest bidder. After reading what you just wrote , I completely looses confident in accepting the second offer. Ebay is indeed a scary trading place. Thank you again smoothoprter for your advice.

Opps! Sorry I had it in the wrong forum. Thanks Swanky mama for moving this to the ebay forum. Sorry my explanation wasn't detail enough. I received the message from my personal email acct. There's no messages in my ebay mailbox. I think this might be a scammed.
