Purchased 1828 R5 O123a to find out that it had been sold after purchasing to someone else on forum

I know it is a good error of service
But why did it happen and will I ever be made right

    I know parts of this story and it doesnt add up. I would like to hear the other party’s side… I will tag this person if they don’t come out of the shadows 👀

    This should be interesting…..

    To the OP, as a helpful reminder, the members of this forum generally need details and such to try to help, otherwise it will often turn against the poster when more details are presented (remember the eBay thread for example).

    Just trying to help, as already this seems to look a little suspect.

    That's a nice Morgan on your website, OP. You have a good eye for coins.

    I'd better hold my tongue. I have no proof of anything, but be extra careful dealing with the OP...I'll leave it at that.

    Item was purchased agreed and paid for. It was a paypal echeck

    Edit: after echeck cleared, the item was no longer for sale after money was issued to sellers account. Money returned. Waited two weeks for 0..

    So how many paper cuts left before we all die (laughing) from your dribble glass postings?

    At least we all know what does the fox say. You? Hell if we know.

    Don't think I'd want to buy from or sell to you now.

    If you have a problem during a deal with a member here, you should address it privately with them first. If you cannot resolve it, feel that the other party has violated industry ethics and you decide to go public, you need to tell the whole story and describe exactly what happened.

    Otherwise, readers cannot take you seriously and you are damaging your reputation.

    All you have in this hobby is your reputation. Protect it and act honorably.

    If this is true, then you might actually have a legitimate complaint. We await the rest of the story...

    Ugh. OP, enough of this ridiculousness. Give all the pertinent details right off the bat. It’s like you are basking in all the attention, so you are purposefully dribbling out details every 20 posts or so. You’ve done this before.

    If attention is not the goal, what is the intent of posting this? What do you want?

    Very simply: I purchased off the bst the 1828 r5 gave the seller my commitment to buy it and paid him.

    I issued a friends and family through paypal payment which took two weeks to clear

    I waited for the payment to clear first before the item shipped and upon the day of it clearing, seller tells me his assistant misplaced the item and it had been sold to someone else as I had already paid for the item and gave my commitment first.

    I can show copies of the PM
    Where an agreement was made, seller accepted the funds, and later gave me some reason that the item magically got sent to someone else on the day of the payment fully going into his account. Seller did refund the money, but the fact it was sold as a mistake to someone else does not sit well

    How can I trust people if they send me my money back after making a firm purchasing commitment by paying them?

    The item was offered for $300 I made offer $200 it was accepted. Is that the problem? Would you like to see the PM and decide for yourself

    You got yourself kicked off ebay for not fulfilling your obligations. I wonder if that sat well with your buyers. 🤔

    I did fulfill them
    I fulfilled every single obligation

    But what does this have to with me not getting what I paid for.
