Hi nkb999

 

It's not a scam if you didn't pay.

 

No, it's not reportable.

 

The item is still the seller's until the hammer comes down - he can raise the price by $600 more if he wants.

The seller should be thanking you. Your lowball offer made him take another look at his item and realize that it was worth more than he thpught.

While he has undoubtedly put you on his BBL, you probably will make him a substantial profit.

Would a reputable seller behave this way? Walk away from this interaction knowing this seller doesn't meet your standards of professionalism and good faith! Who would ever want to transact with a greedy manipulating rude weasel? Don't waste another breath on this and continue your search for your item from a polite respectful human. Good Luck on your quest!

Scam?  What scam?

 

The only policy violation here is you offering to buy items off eBay (your request for unlisted - i.e. multiple - items).

"but gave no explanation."

 

That's because you are not entitled to one.

 

Find another seller as I'm sure this one has placed you on their blocked bidders list.

 

A scam would be if you paid for something and got nothing or you paid and got something totally inferior to what you thought you were buying. There was no scam here.

Scam? How do you figure?

Reportable? No.

Find another seller.
