You should file an Unpaid Item Case.  These bad buyers don't have any repercussions when sellers just allow them to cancel their purchase.  With the Unpaid Item Case they get strikes on their account and after 2 in 12 months most sellers will have them blocked from bidding on their items.

Bid or bought/won?

For a winner:

For  a bidder, see the site map below, then cancel bids.
