    Getting The Winning Bid At eBay Counts For Nothing?
    Getting The Winning Bid At eBay Counts For Nothing?

    It has already become a common scenario when a dealership is refusing to sell their car to an eBay bidder who has rightfully won it in an auction. This issue may look simple at first, but upon further investigation it becomes apparent that the dealership might even have the right to refuse to sell their car to the final bidder. John McKee is the name of that unfortunate final bidder that has won such an auction.

    It was a 2009 Chevrolet Corvette Z06 for $56,600, or so he thought. In reality, once he called the dealership, the sales manager - Matt Kinder told him that he will only receive this car if he paid $69,500. Seems pretty ridiculous, doesn't it? Actually, in the state of Arizona all auctions of goods are presumed to be with reserve. So, the dealership had every right to refuse to sell their car.

    However, one could argue that this contradicts the law of "offer and acceptance." This law states that if a buyer wants to buy a product at a certain price, the seller can either accept or decline. If the seller accepts, he is legally obligated to sell that product at the agreed price. When McKee has won the Corvette with the final bid of $56,600, he received an email of congratulations on the purchase.

    Whether McKee will take this case to court remains unknown, however we do know that buying a car on an eBay auction can be much more trouble than it's worth, so beware!
