I received an email that my "bid was retracted". They said that the reason was that "There is mold in the objective lens. It was not disclosed."
What ever happened here. It’s now marked “auction ended” and not shown as sold. Price is also back down to $9.99 with 0 bids, (it had been up to $109 a couple of days ago). Looks to me like some hanky panky went on here!
So, I'm not sure if someone that was bidding convinced them that this travesty justified eliminating an even playing field, or what. I've inquired to find out if it is going to be listed again. The person that answered said that they weren't sure.
Definitely seems a little fishy. In my email I almost begged them NOT to try and clean it. Hopefully they don't. Also, told them I hoped it was relisted, because it would be a shame to rob the people that were bidding in good faith.
So far, no further response.
I wouldn't be surprised that they don't list it again.
WELL!!! I WAS WRONG!!! is relisted, but look at the item description. What a tragedy. What the heck happened. I hope they didn't throw the objective away.
