Re: EBay Question
ebay won't do anything to the seller for ending the listing early, but they prohibit offers to buy or sell items outside of ebay, once that item or one like it has been listed. About all you can do is report it and let ebay handle it as they choose. Did they email you through the ebay messaging/email system? I'm assuming that's the only way they could reach you. If so, you'll have proof of what happened to direct ebay to.
Help stamp out, eliminate, and do away with redundancy.
