Unpaid Item Strikes from E-bay

I have a doubt regarding the E-bay auctions. I came across this doubt when one of my friend placed a bid with e-bay auction and had not paid it after winning the bid.

He received some e-mails from e-bay that he will be entitled for 'Unpaid Item Strikes' from the e-bay, but he is saying he is not the one who is living for the e-bay account or ratings.

I want to know, accept(canceling) suspending the e-bay account what legal action e-bay can take if he does n't pay the auction amount which he should?

any suggestions would be appreciated.

Did your friend try contacting their customer care? I'm sure they will respond.

They must not be going to say that they wont take any legal action? Do you think they will?

I hope your friend wasn't joking when he placed the bid. If he's experiencing any problem paying the amount, he should notify ebay immediately. I'm sure they will listen.

Read their terms & conditions.

He was not... but he didn't expect also that he would win.

Whatever, the thing is can they take some legel action, if somebody will logged in and go for a bid, win and dont pay?

Their terms and condition says that they will start unpaid item strike and too many of these will lead to suspension of account, nothing else.

I am still trying to find, if they wont take any action then it would be seller loss, who could not sell his item and still had to pay to e-bay for keeping his item on auction.

What say?

Hmm, I don't get it, seriously! Why bid if you don't expect to win? That's sure a loss for the seller. I'm not too sure if the seller/e-bay would take a legal action.

But if the terms/conditions mention that the account will be suspended, don't expect anything else. But tell your friend - its not fun to cheat the system.

Yup Biggi, he himself had learned a lesson.

Got a piece of info that E-bay would allow seller to again re-auction for free. And will suspend account of that user so he can not bid any more.
