If you use BIN options you get the item right away and dont have any hassle but at the same time i always feel like im being screwed and over charged for something that would and should have cost half the amount.
The main problem i have at present is that im TRYING to buy a 'wall mounted fireplace' for our new house which we will be moving into in the end of february. Now the issue i have is when i look for BIN options for medium sized ones i find they all usually cost £70ish. Yet theres loads of auction versions of these but it seems odd to me that when i look at the BIDS on all these wall mounted fireplaces i have tried to buy....whats the main thing you think ive noticed? all the NEW bidders or older bidders seem to be bumping the price up...and have something like 0 feedback or AT MOST 10ish feedback and ive also noticed these so called bidders just HAPPEN to come from the same area the item is being sold from.
I thourght ebay said they would put a stop to this sort of thing? its clear as day its either the seller or a sellers friend who keeps bumping the price up and ive had this happen now on at least 12 auctions for a wall mounted fireplace. I just find it very very suspisious that these auctions all end around about the £65-70 price range and never EVER any lower than that, even when ive been up at 3-4AM and have put bids on....it seems theres at least 2-3 other bidders up at that time who just happen to be after the same item?
Its just starting to frustrate the hell out of me because getting something as simple as this shouldnt be as difficult as its turning out. I dont mean to come across as being jewish with money but every penny does count in this situation. Its costing us £7000 for a deposit and then £800 in solicitor fees and then god knows what the removal men will charge us for...
Ive already paid out over £700 in stuff for our new house which we needed like new wardrobes+drawers and various other stuff. I need the wall mounted fireplace to help make the room...well MAKE the room basically but i just feel im getting screwed over by dodgy sellers here

Leave it to Dead Metal to have the word 'Pronz' in his signature.
