    I was thinking about this set of tires that was on ebay, local, and very very cheap... Was SUPPOST to close the next morning so I got up to check and make sure I was up on time to bid and the FULKER closed the auction! /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif
    He just emailed me about 6 hours earlier said he didn't have pics they where a friends tires and that they where 80-85% tread left.

    Then two days ago, I spied a couple auctions about 20minutes away for a hood and core support for $5 each and they only had a couple bids (still under $10). I get online to bid and the FOLKER cancelled the bids and closed them early. Then he has other auctions that say email me for parts, do not bid on this auction.

    Is the same seller doing it on all of their items? I was dealing with a seller who would list items for a penny (the items usually sold for around $90, and I think they are drop-shipped) and then cancel the auctions near the end if they weren't bid up high enough. I emailed him and told him what he was doing is against ebay policy. He was a jacka$$ about it and told me that it was his stuff, he could cancel it if he wanted. I turned him in to ebay for "circumventing ebay fees". The next day all of his items had a reserve price. I'm with you though, I don't like to waste my time with sellers who think ebay is just a game, and when they cancel the auction early it makes bidders want to stop searching for bargains.

    He listed (used) fenders, hoods, doors and other truck parts, all listed at $5. Most had about 1day left and where not over $10.

    I've noticed he also does auctions saying not to bid on a $.99 truck but to email him for parts and he would list that part up for auction.... I want to snipe one of his truck posts for $.99 and go pickup the truck but he closes all of them at about 14hours (ebay has a 12hour policy on items with bids, so he cancels the bids at about 16-14hours and closes the auction early. I've noticed it ALOT because hes on my local sellers bookmarks.
