Did anyone see the thing about the man who put the bid in on the manchester untied munich memorial match program?

He bid £660,000 and instead of pulling the bid ebay have told him he has to pay even though they later banned all such items

Anyone thing ebay only cares about their final value fees?

Serves him right I say. Can't bear ebay timewasters.

The guy who bid, shouldn't pay, the seller will mark it as no payment sent, the bidder will get a big fat -1. He probably wont even care!

7.25 % of £660,000 = Final Value Fee

There only doing it to get the massive fee sick of eBay but where else is there to sell apart from on here?

Yeah because making money out of the munich disaster is ok is it?

They pulled a few of his bids on others auctions (£1,000000+) but missed that one.

Stop blaming eBay just because some idiot was peeved that he could not get a program and then tried to spoil other auctions.

I think you'll find the fake bids were to stop people cashing in on the munich disaster in which 23 people died, People were given these as souveniers free, and most people, including myself thought it was in bad taste, ebay must have done too because all the other auctions were pulled.

It's nothing to do with not being able to get a programme

According to the local Manchester radio, the guy went to the match but failed to get a program. He then decided to spoil the auctions and messed up big time.

IIRC they even interviewed the guy about this.

They should lock up these people who make money out of other peoples deaths.

How do you think their families feel??

Disrespectfull doesn't even come close IMHO.

Like the millions of people who make millions of pounds out of 9/11 and 'the Holocaust'? In comparison this doesn't even come close. Don't talk nonesense.

Then explain this :

Looks like time wasting to me. Spiteful revenge because he couldn't get one. The question I would ask though is this :

Why did the organisers ALLOW people to buy more than one program???

Why try to put words in my mouth? Show me where I said that? You can't as I didn't. Whether it's 'morally' right or wrong to sell this item isn't the issue. The issue is he bid, therefore he is being called to honour that bid. Simple:thumbsup:

As I understand it, as much as eBay say it's a legally binding agreement etc., this isn't actually the case (due to them not being an Auction House, etc.), so I doubt very much thatthe guy will have to pay up.

Never been able to understand this thing about not making money from deaths, disasters, wars etc etc.

If people are going to take this moral high ground that nobody should be making money out of others deaths and the such then we would have no films, books, songs or other art works involving any true life situations involving death.
For instance films and books like Titanic, Pearl Harbour, Zulu, the list is endless, would not exist.

Have a look in your DVD/Film collection, I'm sure you'll find an example or two ?

There would also be no Newspaper/Magazine and no independant TV News coverage of any disaster or death.

You can't even govern just when it would be morally right to allow stuff to be produced after such events. The only thing I feel you might get agreement on is that anything in these areas that is produced is done so under a set of moral guidelines but again i doubt it could be made enforcable.

It's a price you have to pay for Democracy and so called freedom of speech and non censorship of the media.

Pretty much but as you agree to their t&c's when you sign up there is a contract formed on winning an item. The only way the seller could force him to pay though would be through the courts as its a civil matter, which is unlikely. We all know he won't pay, the seller will get the hump, put in an NPB to get his fees back and neg him. Then life goes on.....

In my case the film would get banned:w00t:

Out of curiosity I just checked completed items on ebay and I can't find it. So that would indicate that ebay have pulled it and all bets are off.

Ebay's answer to anything they can't handle isn't it:

Bury and ignore !
