rick1827 said:I would be very careful of Massy. I willing to bet there is some catch. I wrote extentively on this site two years ago when buying my 04 XLR how they lied repeately to me. To make a long story short. Back then I won the bid for the XLR, called them, sent 10K deposit and told them I would be there in 5 days to pick it up (as I live in Cincinnnati and they were in Texas). Everything was fine til I showed up. They sold the car to someone else (while holding my deposit) who offered more AFTER I had already won the bidding. I immediately got my lawyers involved. I demanded my money back on the spot plus my airfare. They told me they would have to mail me a check. Long story short, It took 3 months and a lawsuit to get the money. They wanted me to wait for another car.
That's almost like bait and switch. I hope you nailed them for more than airfare. Your right, any dealer would take that car off their hands for a lot more than 91k.
I have already alerted ebay, but honestly I don't they care. It took 20 minutes just to fine someone to take the complaint. They don't care until after the fact and I doubt they care then. I have had my attorney already sent them a letter. I guess we will find out in a couple of hours. BY THE WAY, I just took delivery of my V here in Cincinnati. So, If any of you guys want one, I might have one for sale. My dealer has already told me he would give me 95K to take my place.upstate said:Having sold many cars on ebay and over 1,000 transactions let me offer this advice. First if he attempts to bid up his own item, it is a violation of Ebay policy and will be suspend imediately. You need to alert Ebay of this if it happens. If you suspect it they have ways of investigating it. I know I've seen it happen to others. Second he can just cancell the auction at anytime and its over. He just pays Ebay the listing fees and that is the end of it. Even if there are bids on it he can cancell it. He may not be able to do it in the final 12 hours, I'm not clear on the Ebay policy on that. The only way he can get out of this legally (Ebay rules) now is to end the auction (only if the 12 hour rule doesn't apply). If he bids on it or you are the high bidder and he does not honor it he's got a problem. Let us know how it proceeds.

I hope you get it, but don't get your hopes up until you shut it off in your garage.
Bob (K for my V) I'm not jealous, I'm not jealous, I AM NOT JEALOUS
standby said:If you love E-bay, why don't you put it up for sale on e-bay instead of putting it in the wrong catagory on this site. We have a catorgory for putting items up for sale.

rick1827 said:I sold it tonight. By the way, they tell me they have more than 1. I put it in this forum so that anyone following the threads would know about it.
Sold it. My dealer who sold me mine bought it. Camargo Cadillac.standby said:How come we haven't heard anymore about the V you won on E-bay? Did you got to Massey to pick it up or did you sell it and the new owner is picking it up. I'm dying to hear about the face to face at Massey, aren't you guys?
