I read it too, it has gotten insane. I'd love to read the final resolution w/o all the yelling, infighting etc. I've had problems on EBay and did little to punish fraudulent sellers.

There is no real fraud here; just a possible deceptive business practice and, maybe, a breach of contract.

"Real" fraud would have been taking the deposit or swithching cars to a different model.

The gilted buyer's recourse is to retain a lawyer in the locale of the dealer and sue for breach of contract. Given that he is likely to spend as much on litigation as his perceived "loss" on the aborted eBay transaction, this is pretty moot.

Ebay is not a consummer protection agency.

In Trade Law, you can recover all legal fees. This would have been legal for them to end due to thier discalimer, however the auction ended making it a legal binding contract. My wife specializes in Consumer Law and Contracts and I am asking her to review the case for fun.
