Talking Terrible Trick To Play On An Ebay Seller

So we have all seen listings where someone has a card at a ridiculous price like a Kaepernick Shield for $50,000 or they try to show a card off and have a BIN of $1,000,000. I have even seen people put up an 80ís base card for $100,000 as a joke. Here is a mean trick to play on one of these sellers. Wait until the last day of the month and hit their BIN without the intention of paying. They then will have the final value fee reflected on their monthly invoice and will have to pay it. They will have to wait until next month to recoup the funds. Wont work on an auction because of the max fee amount but fees on a million dollar BIN are like $10K. HAHA. I think itís funny anyway.

Speechless....to the idiot that this could backfire on if the seller wants to go through the legal trouble...

Ok...lets say that someone does this to "play the joke" what happens when he sends you the $100,000 invoice? Are you prepared to take a negative for a joke?

While I agree this is pretty lame...

It certainly is clever in a crazy person kind of way.

sellers can now report buyers. Not a negative, but enough that playing this game could get your account suspended...

I just wonder why someone would do this to someone else. Let the crazy seller put $100,000 on his $100 card, its his card...but to hit his buy it now so he gets drilled for a ton of fees is just wrong. Not sure why someone would come up with this idea.

OP-you think it would be funny to cost someone hundreds of dollars (or more) just as a joke? You are a world class tool and an idiot!

If someone did that, I would most definitely do a "quicky consultation" with an attorney.

Just stupid, immoral, unethical and dumb.
