Default Ebay member: murrayandsmith, probably simple, but what should I do?

The member has changed his name. It is now: sellingbaseballcards2u
Former names:
murrayandsmith Jun-23-11 Oct-05-12
toppssterling Mar-22-08 Jun-23-11
joseph3859 Oct-31-05 Mar-22-08

I've been busy with school lately so haven't had any time to pay attention to cards, but after having a card up for over a month at a price and getting some decent offers close to what I wanted I decided to just move it to auction since there were multiple people that wanted it. It ended up ending higher than my original BIN price and as far as I can tell the highest the card has gone for. The winning bidder won with $73 and the second closest, of course, was at $72. Well, just log into eBay and I get this:

"Hi. I'm truly sorry but can I ask you to re-list this card. I'm in the middle of a nasty divorce and literally just paid my attorney $11,000. I'm broke right now. As you can see from my feedback this is not normal for me. The attorneys fee came out of the blue.
Thank You, Joe."

Doubt the second guy would accept a second chance offer....Any advice?

I personally would file the NPB when you can.

If I send the second chance offer out, will that negate anything with the original bidder? Would it make sense to just cancel the auction (if I can) or go the NPB route?

File NPB and tell him to find a cheaper lawyer

actually i just got a message from him on an active auction


Hi. I am truly sorry but I must retract my bid. I am in the middle of a nasty divorce and I just had to pay my attorney $11,000. The attorneys bill came out of the blue otherwise I would never have bid in the first place. Please notice my feedback. This has never happened to me and never will again. I'm truly sorry. If I win you can simply re-list your item. I called eBay and they are well aware of my circumstances. Again, I truly am sorry. Divorce sucks for a man.

he has not cancelled his bid yet... does he expect me to do it for him ?

An SCO will not negate anything. You either have to send the Mutual cancellation and hope he agrees (he can decline and you will be out your fees), or file the NPB, wait 4 more days and close the NPB. Then you are off the hook.

It doesn't sound like he is going to retract. I would cancel and block ASAP.

It sucks to be the only other bidder here because if MAY look as if you did this on purpose to the other bidder.

Personally I offer it to the 2nd bidder at $68 delivered.

Tell him I'll just go the NBP route instead of the mutual cancellation someone brought up and he says:

"
I will send you the fees so you can re-list it. Just tell me how much and your PayPal ID so I can send you the fees via PayPal.
Thanks, Joe."

Told him my PP, ugh, against my better judgement. He doesn't want to go the NPB route.

EDIT: Case is officially done and the seller has changed his name to sellingbaseballcards2u.

I like how eBay says you can close the case exactly 4 days after opening (time exact), yet doesn't openly list the time on the case open as if I'm suppose to remember it or search through the depths of my account to find it. I'm pretty sure it has been four days but I'm going to wait till tonight to finally close this case. I needed money for some school stuff and I've had everything tied up with this. Such an awesome buyer.

Is there anyway to change the title so I can put his new name in it?
