Definately bidding up his own auction

 

1st ad - http://www.ebay.co.u...T-/151644087124

Winner was 100% activity with the seller. Item relisted very quickly and no feedback left.....?

 

2nd ad - most recent in this thread

 

2nd bidder was same buyer as before.

 

Both times, the shill bids have been around £1200-1300 which is the figure the seller said the car owed him on here. Very bad, ebay rules been broken...

Busted!

What a turnip.

I thought you were a sound guy, but that is terrible to be honest dude. It's wrong and you should be ashamed. You're the one who went and bought it and Just because you were not aware of the work needed... tough **** it's a bit of a state once had a proper look, that doesn't mean it's okay to do it to the next person though.

Oh and no I'm not interested in the PC anymore

Regardless of whether you drove the bidding up or not, still doesn't make it alright lying. It's annoying because you clearly don't give a ****.

Meh

Based on this I've got a very good mind to remove your buying and selling rights on TMF.  You clearly have no morals and I certainly wouldn't want to do business with you.

she payed the deposit to cover my ebay fees thats fair she comes tomorow i show here around the car shes see the damage it up to her if she buys im not gonna cover up the damage with something am i ******* theres no hiding it

no one shows the biggest damage on ebay as no one would buy once your in front of the car your more likely to buy it when u see the damage as u start to attach your sell to the car and seeing urself in it

no matter what buy it or not that women will leave my house nown everything that needs doing on that car

I'm assuming that when she finds out you've lied about the condition of it you'll be refunding the deposit and probably giving her some money to cover her wasted time?

I've only just seen this! Unfortunately, we are all aware that there are many sellers out there just like you who are somewhat less than honest when it comes to the listings - not just on minis, but many cars. Decent people advertise the bad bits of the cars. Look at the ads on here, many of them will list the good and the bad points. 

 

You are completely missing the point. Just because you spent the money on the car (which was obviously too much) and feel you got conned, that does not give you the right to con someone else. You messed up, you have to take it on the chin, learn from it, don't be a giant douche and take it from there. Advertise it honestly, and you'll get a fair price for it. In the same way that you are saying she has the right to walk away, you had the right to walk away as well. If you spend as much as £1300 on a car blind on eBay, bigger fool you. 

 

Seriously, in the morning, do the decent thing. Give the girl a call, explain that actually there is a bit more work required and that although it has an MOT, it shouldn't be on the road and will need extensive welding to put it right. Take your losses, learn from it and don't make the same mistake again. You probably don't care, but your reputation on here has clearly taken a battering to the point where anyone who has seen your threads on this car will be unlikely to buy anything from you in the future. 

 

Also, you mentioned that you spent money 'doing it up'. Doing what? Don't just put new wheels on, or new seats and leave the car to rust away around you in the hope it will just go away as it doesn't. 

 

To get your money back now, you are probably best off stripping the car for parts and selling like that (not on here, as most people won't trust you now). Next time you buy a car, make sure you get a proper checklist and have a proper look around rather than just buying something that looks good in a picture on eBay. And for the love of cars, don't screw anyone over. 

 

Like I said, give the poor girl a call and you might just redeem a little bit of your reputation.

Just...Wow...

 

I really have seen everything now

 

Actually wait, i haven't seen an ant eat it's own head....

 

I just hope that the winning bidder does actually get the chance to walk away and that you don't hide the serious issues from her. Even if you do, it will be a huge waste of a day for her.

 

WHEN you re-list the car,please use an honest description

That's the thing, Mini people use Mini forums, it was only a matter of time before the winner saw this thread, just glad it was before they bought it.

 

Sorry to the OP but you can't post up photos of all that rot on a public forum and then attempt to sell the car claiming it to be sound. It just doesn't work
