About three weeks ago I listed one of my basses on Ebay, it sold, but the buyer never paid. I contacted the buyer several times before they contacted me back. They explained they were having trouble with paypal, but would complete payment by the end of the week. ...I waited two weeks, messaged them and they did not message me back. Long story short, I relisted the bass and yesterday during the last 7 hours of the auction, the original buyer paid for the bass. So now, I have a bass being auctioned thats already sold. I wasn't sure what to do...I tried to cancel the auction but couldn't because you have to do so before the last 12 hours. Well, I got up this morning and after the auction was over I contacted the new bidder explaining the situation. He was upset about it and said he was paying for the bass anyway. I asked him not too, due to the bass having already been paid for. I thought it would be simpler that way rather than to refund the money, and then accept his payment. Well, he didn't see it that way and he called me a scammer. I called Ebay customer service, who recommended returning to old buyers money and completing this transaction. I contacted the buyer telling him what Ebay CS told me. He was upset and was being rude about things. He called me a scammer and was going to report me to Ebay. I messaged him back apologizing, saying that I had screwed up but had done everything in my power to complete the transaction. Also, I told him if I was a scammer, I would have taken his money and jsut sold the bass twice. But instead of doing that I was honest. I have a 100% feedback rating too. I ended up sending him a cancelled listing and he accepted. Selling basses on Talkbass is so much better. The people are friendlier...etc... Again, I agree that maybe I didn't do what was best at first, but in the end I tried to make things right. What a sucky transaction.
