    Do you think the seller listed the item for 99 cents maliciously, or do you think it was an honest mistake?

    I appreciate you disappointment. I might be a little disappointment, if it happened to me. But it sounds like it was an honest mistake. So if you decide to press the issue, then I would say that you would be the one trying to scam the seller.

    I would let it go.

    Yeah, I found a Bach tr300, fairly new, appeared to one owner and in good condition, new seller to ebay, 0 feedback. After winning it for $100.00, seller said she had wanted $450.00 or more out of it. I left neutral feedback and comment that seller was unfamiliar with ebay. I hope that wasn't too punitive. Now, more recently just got a Yamaha ycr2310 from ebay, seller listed it as a ycr2310II, improved version. I didn't bother to research differences before hand. I got it for 104.00 plus shipping, with some surface wear and dings, asked for $25.00 back, he countered with 20.00, I countered with 15.00, he seems okay with that, I intend on leaving positive fdback with small note.

    Thanx for all the replies... my initial feeling was to just let it go... then I wondered what everyone else would do.

    I will just let it go... I knew when I did the Buy It Now that is was WAY too good to be true, I mean who does a Buy It Now OR Best Offer and starts at .99!??!?

    Thanx all!

    Nobody. The guy intended it as the opening bid but screwed up his sales preferences. I know, I've done it!
    Do me and yourself a favor. Put FeePay on hold and use one of the nationwide Craigslist search engines. I've gotten many great deals that way. Not everyone is on FeePay old Sport.
