Dealer refusing to honor Ebay Sale
Does anyone have any experience with a dealer refusing to honor their auction post closing on Ebay? There are apparently numerous horror stories about unscrupulous sellers not honoring their sale, but I have now become one of those victims :angry:
I won an auction on a 2012 911 Turbo S for $100k, but the dealer (Platinum Auto Group, Victorville CA, Platinumvv.com) is saying he forgot to place a reserve, so he doesn't have to sell it for the struck/close price. He's gone so far as to re-list it and say he has no intention of honoring the auction. They claim $100k was an unreasonable bid on the car, and I should have to pay their reserve (whcih they conveniently neglected to post or observe over the entire course of the auction). He says he'll " work with me on it" and has offered the generous price of $139,000 for an auction already won. I'm exceedingly disappointed in the lack of integrity of their dealership and management. Any thoughts on legal recourse or Ebay's ability to enforce the sale?
Then again, maybe a phone-in campaign (877-449-8849) from the L4P community might make them reconsider :spank:
