Ebay messed up and cost me the sale...

I had my supercharger up for sale on ebay and they had a fraudulent bidder so they took it off. I had the bids nice and high and now I am afraid I have lost out on the sales. If you want a imagine auto kit please respond to this and email me jay@agesevents.com 2200.00 can take it home. That does not include shipping, insurance, or the ecu.

6-speedonline,ppbb,babblers.org,criagslist.....Those are the only other sources I can think of that you could sell it on.

Hope that helps.

I had the same thing happen last week. My item sold for $1025 to a sniper that had hacked someone's account. When the account owner saw the charge they contacted eBay. They deleted the entire auction without a re-list option, so I have to type the whole thing up again. But they did reimburse me the listing fee. But I guess it happens to the best of us!

Wow Todd good eyes!

What gave it away? The single plenum between the intakes?

Single plenum intake, the DME harness, the intake tube, the fact the motor is facing the wrong way when attached to the tranny, the coolant tube hanging down, the fuel rails..... Lots of hints

Good work Sherlock

Wondering if the seller is just clueless, or trying to pull a fast one

Either way I just e-mailed him to give him a clue... Hopefully we'll save someone some real heartache. Can you imagine trying to buy a 3.4L and getting a 2.5L instead??? Hopefully someone would figure it out sooner rather than later!

JAAY,

I think in your situation ebay has a list of the bidders and they will allow you to offer the sc to them at their highest bid price.

I know of this only because I was the 2nd in line and got my item on some parts.
