"Oversized tee shirts, gauzy scarves, drop crotch trousers, vegetable-dyed leather jackets, and grunge-influenced plaid dresses give her urban warriors a disheveled, nomadic look for fall. Abstract prints and sun-bleached solids are paired with coal-rimmed eyes and cuffed ankle boots." -Coutorture
So i think i was kinda scammed on ebay yesterday, and i was wondering if any of you have ever experienced something similar . . .
I was watching these Genetic Denim jeans but I realized I was gonna be at work when the bidding ended . . . i decided to throw down $60 as my max bid and just leave the rest to fate.
When i got done with work i had a few ebay messages in my mailbox . . The first one was that i had been outbid (the jeans were now selling for $61), the second email was that there had been an "ebay bid change" and i was once again the high bidder, and the third email was that i had won the jeans for my max price of $60. This struck me as fishy.
Upon further investigation i discovered that there had been 11 bids on the jeans while i was at work, all by the same buyer, after my initial bid before I left for work. The bidder consistently raised their bid by $2-4 every ten seconds until they had just barely outbid me. . . then they retracted their last bid stating "entered wrong amount" WTF
This bidder has also retracted bids 8 other times in the last 30 days. . . Detective Molly at work. I did a little ebay research and found out that what this bidder was doing is called "shilling." I sent an email to ebay stating what happened so we'll see how things turn out.
If any of you have ever traveled around (or live/lived in) Buenos Aires/Argentina I would LOVE any recommendations you might have of things my sister and I just can't miss while we are there (a couple weeks in the beginning of May), We're staying, at least the first week, in a rented apartment in Palermo Viejo. We decided to do the apartment route because it seemed safer, cheaper, and a great storage place to keep all the amazing goodies we'll be picking up at the many flea markets.
We are big carnivores, love wine, dancing, and the road less traveled. Please give me any suggestions you think we might enjoy!!!
