Cant believe the cheek of it!

I was bidding on an item on a f/b selling page.
Only i had bid and it had 15mins to go.
So i was getting it a cheap. I actually bid a bit higher than I could have, as didnt wanna rob her lol.It was only a hamper of kids pencils, book sweets etc. Worth 8 quid at most, i bid £4.
Anyway I asked how much it had gone for, cos i couldnt find it on wall.
She said,, I've held the auction cos someone wants to bid on it,and cant till tommorow''
This has to be the best yet.
You cant do this surely!!!!
Shant be doing anything about it, as its not worh it, but blimey.

People are actually setting up 'Selling Page' Accounts & use that in their names, often having a few different accounts so not using their full real names

Know absolutley nothing about FB, was about to ask what sort of protection have they got on there for buyer/ selllers?

zilch really. The onus is on the buyer to ensure the transaction is safe I suppose.

Or setting up a Scammers page like this seems to be the way forward(but doesn't stop them opening a new account!):

You can tell if someone has done that in most cases. You can choose who to deal with, I would only deal with what I thought to be a genuine profile who had no problem letting me access their account.
