Default Dude hasn't paid for almost two weeks but gave me this story, what would you do?

Here is his message with the name removed:

Dear jjohnnym65,

I am very sorry for the delay. My son died and we had to bury him and clean out his house. This caused us to get behind, but you should have it soon. thank you for your patience and understanding,

If this is true and I gave him a strike I'd feel horrible, but at the same time this is like a $16 sale and that includes shipping, so not exactly a ton of money. The item ended 11 days ago.

No, haven't opened a case because I didn't want to look like an @$$ if this was true. The guy has well over 1k feedback only a few negatives which you would almost expect with that kind of volume.

I remember reading another post from a BO member in the last couple of weeks. They had sold a card, and the buyer had the EXACT same reason for late payment. I tried to find the post, but couldn't. Maybe it was posted to a different section? I wonder if it's the same buyer?

If in fact his son did die, I'm sure your strike won't really make a difference to him.

Found the thread alazarevich was talking about. Thanks man, I appreciate it...
Here it is... Does he have any feedback recourse if I just say screw it and relist? Everyone will be able to see that no payment was made and that I relisted 2 weeks after it was sold. Shall I name names now?

Ok so he doesn't have time to ship or pay, yet he can bid or set snipes?

I'm curious if it is the same ID from the first thread? If so, you could feel fairly certain whether he is giving you a BS line or if he did have a death by looking at end of auction dates and so forth. I would not relist without filing a non paying bidder to cover my own butt.

Same guy, seibercollectibles. I'm giving him 'til the end of the business day on Wed. If this really happened to him though wouldn't he just ship out all sales ASAP, take down all listings and cease activity until he was good and ready to start again. Why keep buying cards?

Even if this is a kid - quite a morbid excuse to use. That alone is worth a strike. Granted it's an excuse...

Opened a case on Oct. 18. He paid on the last day before I could close it (the 22nd) shipped his card out right away. Needless to say I've blocked him (seibercollectibles) I suggest y'all do the same.

Same exact message just came to my ebay inbox from the same seller. I won a printing plate.

They put a DC# but there is no info for the # so i hope it's a legit number
