On May 23,2015 I have the high bid on a 1997 Southwind Motor Home ebay item 131515582034. No one has bid for about two days. On May 25 I had one final question for the seller. I revealed to Zack that I had the high bid and wanted an answer before I bid any more. I got my answer and within 30 minutes I got outbidded. I bided again but was outbidded by the same buyer. My gut said stop that they are running it up on me as the RV was advertised as "AS IS NO RESERVE". When I called on 5/23 the salesman Zack tried to sell me the home then and stop the sale. I refused. Shortly after the sale closed and it was noted "Sold" on ebay , I received a phone call from Kenny Day wanting me to entertain a purchase of the home. He said the purchaser had not put up his money and they were ready to sell it to me if we could agree on a price. Note: a valid buyer has 24 hours to put up his money and it had not been over two hours. This was a clue to me that this bidder was someone within or associated with the business. Daniel was stopped by someone reminding him of the 24 hour wait period. I expected a call Tuesday. No call. Wed. I called Zack to see if the home was still available. Yes for $23,900. I informed him that I would come to see it. I called the store early Thurs. and requested to speak to the top person in charge. He was in a meeting but was to return my call. No call was returned. I go visit Friday with funds to pay $14000. which was the high bid for the home. I called in advance to make sure manager was there. He was not but would be back at 3:00pm. I said I would be there about that time , coming from Bowling Green, Ky. a 338 mile round trip. When I arrived he was reportedly in the hay field and would be back Monday. I saw the RV. Daniel was nervous but cooperative. He called who he said was the high bidder, D. Hawkins 219-637-4527 "in Indiana"and I heard that "# has been disconnected or no longer in service." Yet they were confidant to attempt a sale with me 4 days before. The bid history with ebay reveals that he had bid 28 times on 5 different items and 100% of his bids were with this seller. One bid had been retracted. I requested that they sell me the home at the price of 13, 700 which was my valid bid before the manipulator got involved on 5/25.Kenny said it would take 18,000 to buy it. He said he would try it again in about a week as another "no reserve". If it only brings 13,000 then he will let it go. He gave no explanation as to why he could not take my runner up bid today. Daniel may explained it when he said another Bowling Green man had called wanting to trade a pickup and fifth wheeler to it. The two Bay Bros. adventure a bait and switch technique of trying to push a different home off on me for $15,000. I refused saying if I can't buy a no reserve home for what I as a valid high bidder offered then I want buy anything regardless of the price.Show more...
