Oh stop being weird!! Why has someone bid more for my item than it's worth in a shop?

Should I be concerned they're going to dick me around?

They already asked if they could pay by a post dated cheque for the end of the month and even though I specified paypal only I said yes they could bid only if they accepted that I would wait til it had cleared (10 days) and that i would only send it recorded delivery to their name and address registered with ebay.

With one day to go it's one pound more than you can buy it in a shop.

What could possibly go wrong? hmm

they'll get hold of it and demand a refund.

Lauriefairycake Sat 23-Aug-08 18:02:32

which I don't need to give them right?

What is it?????

expatinscotland Sat 23-Aug-08 18:07:52

no, you don't. especially if they pay by cheque.

they can give you negative feedback, but a lot of folks don't care about one or two of those anymore.

it's this one

maybe they don't know how much it is in the shops?
Not sure though, if it were me I would check first probably.
I'd be a bit suspicious tbh - but as expat says, you don't have to give a refund.

eandh Sat 23-Aug-08 18:49:45

Pop the item number on I'll find it and try and do the link smile

twinsetandpearls Sat 23-Aug-08 18:50:19

Your link doesnt work. Strangly if you c+p it to the address bar it does work, but not if you click on it.

I think that some people dont know how much things cost in certain shops. I quite freqently see stuff from Next going for more than it is in the shops.

If you get cleared payment and then send it tracked to registered address then I would think you were safe.

twinsetandpearls Sat 23-Aug-08 18:51:48

that didn't work either.

goingslowlymad Sat 23-Aug-08 18:51:56

try this?

paddingtonbear1 Sat 23-Aug-08 18:52:18

It doesn't work yet, but I got it anyway from the 1st link by deleting the mumsnet bit and just leaving it with http://cgi.. etc

eandh Sat 23-Aug-08 18:52:45

maybe this time?

paddingtonbear1 Sat 23-Aug-08 18:53:05

goingslowlymad's link works!

eandh Sat 23-Aug-08 18:53:17

Lauriefairycake Sat 23-Aug-08 18:54:01
