Seller had 2 auctions for the same widget and I won the one that went
for the lowest price and I get a refund without an explanation. Three
hours after the refund I ask why, and get a near immediate explanation.
I'm prepared to give the benefit of the doubt, but this item is now
showing as unpaid.

Do I get the chance to close the transaction off so she can't file an
NPB, or must that come from the seller? I went to the item, then
-> act
-> resolve a problem
-> I want to cancel my purchase
Then it asks me if I am the buyer or the seller, so I think this is just
a question and answer page, and I guess this is the wrong approach as it
makes me look the baddy.

Neg or neut?

I also notice there is a telephone number to contact ebay on this page
also

Ask the seller to cancel the transaction. Inform them that they will get their
fees abck.

How reasonable did their reasoning sound about the refund?

Yeah, been there a while now and is quite helpful.

Impossible to advise as you have not said what their explanation was. If it
was an honest case of an accidental duplicate listing then I would just not
leave feedback as I am sure everyone has made a honest mistake at some point
in their lives.....haven't you?

Why are you only thinking to punish? Is that what the world (and Ebay) have
come to these days? So sad. If sellers could still leave buyers non-positive
feedback would you be feeling to vindictive? I think not.

Its not punishment, it about leaving honest feedback so that others
buyers can make an informed choice about who they buy from. I would neg
them for wasting my time. I wouldn't care if sellers could leave negs,
a buying account feedback is useless.
