About 10 days ago i found my holy grail bag on eBay after waiting for over a year. The bag is mint so I didn't mind paying top dollar. I submitted and offer to the seller through Best Offer of $200 less than the BIN. She countered-offered by $75 via email and I told her I would accept. THEN, she sent me another email saying her friend outside of eBay offered her more and she wouldn't have to pay final value fees and wanted to know if I would go higher (another $30). I thought it over and decided against b/c I felt I was being hustled. So then she sends me another email saying she felt bad and that she should sell to me b/c she offered it to me first. (i'm thinking 'yeah right' she prolly made all this up b/c if she got a better deal off eBay she could just end the auction and save on all the fees). Anyway, I tell her I will go $99 more than my original offer with shipping included and that's final. We proceed and I pay her that night (10 days ago). She tells me the bag went out last Monday so I wait patiently. By Thursday there is no bag so I email her for tracking number. She finally gets back to me on Sunday (today) and apologizes (she is stressed with school) and gives me the tracking number. I plug it in and it says the item was accepted on Wednesday and to check back for updates. The item was shipped from another city (from a different side of the country! At this point, I totally do not trust my seller b/c she has been less than honest with me from the start. The only thing keeping me going is that this is my dream bag so I sincerely hope it is the same bag from the auction. She has great feedback for buying and selling bags and I can tell it's all genuine. I am just freaking b/c I don't like to be strung along and there is A LOT of money involved, A LOT. This bag had better arrive tomorrow! I am considering leaving her approriate feedback. I just feel icky about the whole process. Ahh....thanks for letting me vent.
