    I emailed the winning bidder to tell them they arent to smart

    Dear ------,

    Valentine one you are bidding on!!!! Man the Valentine one is $399.99 from the Valentine company directly. Plus their shipping is not so pricey...you will overpay by $40...Know what you are bidding on and know the factory cost.

    people have more money than sense!!

    reason is

    sense you have to learn (which some people never do)
    money you have to earn! (which anyone can do that!)

    Hey Volvo, I applaud your intentions, but emailing him is a very bad idea. This type of behaviour is called auction interference and is reason to be thrown off ebay.

    I have not seen the auction, and unless the guy is being mislead somehow by a false description or something, its not your business if they bid $20,000,000 on it.

    I've sold detectors and other items on ebay often at or above retail price. Often it is to overseas buyers who cannot buy directly from the manufacturer. So long as everything is properly described and delivered as promised, the price is a matter between the buyer and the seller.

    auction interferance i have yet to get called on that and only once did the seller contact me and i reported him to ebay for misrepresenting an item.

    Fine ebay can kick me off for informing people of the stuff they deserve to know and should be told. I watch my steps through ebay...and beware if you choose to misrepresent an item on ebay i will come after you. Excuse me for being a nice guy and thinking someone should know the truth...

    And besides I congraduated that seller on the profit he made off those stupid bidders..Play both side you don't get caught

    Any item on ebay that i know is fraud i report. don't commite fruad on ebay is the lesson

    Again, I did not see the auction link as it was deleted before I saw this post. But assuming there is no misrepresentation, I really don't see how the price an item is being sold for is any of your business. Now if the item is being sold with a fraudulent incorrect description or something, then I don't have a problem with what you did at all, although ebay might. I commend anyone who helps to ruin the life of fraudulent sellers online. But making an outrageous profit on an item that is correctly described etc is not fraud.
