    hi everyone,

    thing is, I won a all included brand new Nokia 7310 Supernova from eBay through bidding for a cool $20.50! Would you believe that?

    So now, my total cost would be $45.50 ($25 for the shipping).

    however the seller sends me an invoice for $279.50, saying that the extra cost is for 'special packaging, phone testing and admin'! What a load of horse crap!

    I tell him that I won't pay all that since he didn't mention anything about it in the ad, and I filed a 'non - performing seller' case against him.

    Today, he sent me a message saying that it's unfair that I ask him to sell the fone to me for that price (market value is $200-$230).

    i replied saying that he took the risk by putting it up for bidding, and he's paid the price.

    However, only after I sent it did a great idea flash through my mind! I thought "Why don't I ask him for about $100 as compensation for the profit that I could've made by selling it here in SL?"

    What do you guys/gals think? Will eBay take any action for me for threatning him?

    Cheers!
