I Wonder What This Deal Is All About?

I won an auction on a car Wednesday evening for $118,000.00.
Within 5 minutes of auction close i sent the requested $1,000.00 deposit via paypal. I emailed the seller and asked how he wished to procceed, however i would fly to Nashville the following Tuesday to deliver the balance of funds and pick up the car. I also left my phone #. He calls and demands i pay within 48 hrs or i don't get the car??? he then mails back and says the car is no longer available?? I check paypal later and he has refused my deposit. during several calls to him he sounds like he's stoned?? This guy has several thousand "positives" and a dozen "negatives"
What are my options????? and do i leave neg. feedback and risk same?

Sounds like trouble, if he refused your paypal money, keep it and be thankful....And find another one from a new seller....last wek I had a guy call from Jersey offering a 69 Yenko with 7700 miles, would only take cash...$300,000!...said had tax problems....yeah right!

The seller's feedback is from sellers, not buyers. I'd be suspicious of a highjacked account. The listing started at $100K, yet in the listing, it says $20k was spent on restoration. That right there is a red flag to me. In the world of high-end restoration, $20k ain't gonna cut it.

Hurry hurry, cancel that payment and thank God that you still have your money. I'm sure your disappointed but disappointed with your money is a lot better than disappointed without your money!

The seller sure has a scarcity of words in his description. You'd think if he said it was 'done by the best' that he wouldn't keep it a secret on the auction as to who he thinks is the best.

Every seller I have ever known who owned a car like this wouldn't sell it with 50 words on ebay.;)
