From: Richard Colton on
Sold an item tonight and stated that I'll post to the UK only.

Along comes a German bidder with two seconds to go who then wins the
auction. I contact him and confirm that he is actually in Germany, and then
(politely) point out that the auction was quite clear that I'd only post to
the UK.

He then decides to shut up and leave a neg (approx 1 hour after the end of
the auction).

Is there anything I can do to get the neg removed?

TIA

Yes, negs left within 24 hours of the close of a listing are removable under
the "malicious feedback" rule, plus in your case it should also be
appealable as the bidder did not adhere to the terms of the auction. Appeal
it and it should be removed.

Well his address and phone number are on his 'ME' page along with what looks
like a shitload of anally retentive instructions. Let's all order him some
German skips, taxis, pizzas...... shall we? ;o)

By the way, just out of interest why would you not post that item to
Germany? I know it's the principle of the thing (your item would not have
show up on ebay.de so he must have been browsing the UK site for items which
did not have shipping available to Germany) with an idiot buyer like that
but would it have been easier to just add a fiver for postage and sell it to
him?

....or maybe he is pissed off at missing out on some profit seeing as he is
selling your item for �30 more on his selling ID?

No, I'm not that petty.

I don't sell often and prefer to keep things simple. I suspect that your
guess about missing out on profit may be close to the remark, but it's a
moot point as the feedback has now been removed thanks to a nice short live
chat session.

Thanks to all for the advice.
