    I was searching for nice 1973 mint sets with quality Ikes in them, and finally, I found one sold by jrcor -

    We agreed on a price for the set and then - boof! He cancelled the sale, saying he is 70 years old and he lost the set, despite the quality Ike. I posted a feedback on ebay that was moderately mild, saying just this. And then started his campaign that has now lasted several weeks to harras me over it. Then I think he managed to get ebay to remove the feedback. Which just goes to show that ebays feedback system is garbage and not to be trusted. And this seller, think twice or even three times. He is at minimum potentially harmful to interact with.

    I see your feedback in his feedback list.

    Yeah - it was returned a few moments ago, after I filed a complaint about it. Some progress. At this point, I just additionally want him to stop spamming my inbox on ebay

    Life is too short to worry about stuff like that man. He had it listed, he misplaced it. If he truly didn't want to sell it why would he have listed it? Don't sweat the small stuff. I have had some "weird" things go on with auctions before, but I don't consider it mine until its in my hands. Getting riled up over such things will shorten your lifespan and make you hate your hobby.

    I think it has an MS66 Ike in the set. And hes not that old. I have 70 year old mates who lift the anchors. Otherwise I would agree with you. If he was an 85 year old man and could prove it.

    Yeah, but if you get in a twist over this, you will simply have a miserable hobby experience. Don't get too invested in a coin until its in your paws. I learned that lesson years ago. If not, you are setting yourself up for aggravation in what is supposed to be your relaxation.

    Just my opinion/advice. Do with it what you like Rueben.

    Agreed. If the Army taught me anything, one of the most important to me was, don't worry about things you can't control, concentrate on those you can.

    I'm curious how he harassed you. Was it just emails or something more? Depending on what he did or wrote, you might be able to file a meaningful complaint with eBay.

    "Lost" coin is a ploy used regularly by some shady sellers when they don't want to honor an auction or sale. Then they suddenly "find" that "lost" coin and put it back up for sale.
    I do the same thing you did and give them a negative. And if I see they have a history of doing that stuff I will call eBay and give them a little more notice. Hopefully the paper trail of "lost" coins and cancelled auctions catches up to them.

    agreed. It would be forgotten already if he wasn't continuing to nag me.

    Call eBay and report him for his threats.

    I checked his feedbacks and I saw he also received a neutral for cancelling a previous transaction . You can bet he's doing that on a regular basis, because most buyers won't say anything.

    And to no surprise his auctions are "private listings", which to me is another red flag.
