Depending on the amount, Paypal may hold the money until buyer posts a postive feedback or seller produces a shipping tracking #. The holding period depends on the amount of the money involved, usually is not longer than 30 days. There is a very good chance that seller may ship a fake coin, since the pictures of all listings by this seller is not in a good quality and the buyers (most likely not a knowledgeable coin collector) may not be able to tell if the coin is a fake or genuine. In addition, the scammer may make offer to the second highest bidder and do business outside ebay to avoid holding period required by Ebay/Paypal protection program.  This is the reason that many sellers state clearly in the listing that no second chance offer will be made to any buyer.

well, anyway, it's over :thumbup: ebay sent a warning today but I'm quite sure, he did not make so much money. I know at least 3 bidders/winners, including myself, who did not pay :lol:

I don't think there is a real alternative to the "high" bid, if it is done this way (one day auctions) with ebay preventing you from posting reds before 7 days have expired. Next time may be, we can split the auctions between some of us and go in well above market value but not to excisive. That should keep most of the real bidders out and I'm actually waiting for such a guy sueing me for non-payment :001_tt2:

Even a seller with high feedback isn't invincible. Also with that sales volume in just a few days it should have caught ebay's attention (well, with some help). Nice job at finding those stolen pictures. :thumbup:
