From The Hereafter

New buyer (no ratings) bid / won auction.

Winning email notification sent day auction closed. No reply.

Reminder email sent 3-days later. No reply.

SNC filed. Buyer responds to remit payment.

Buyer sends email, from email address registered with BoB and 'signed' with Buyer's name (as shown on BoB), saying Buyer has passed away, but Buyer is willing to remit payment for the item, less shipping, and I can keep the item.

Seems there ARE some things you can take with you....internet access.

Amazing the tricks some people will try to get out of a transaction they no longer want to complete

If there is internet access, there must be internet banking too. LOL

Indeed! It is strange that in some cases a buyer will respond only after being notified of an SNC filed against them.

 

I filed one a couple days ago (after no communication or payment for 10 days),so buyer sends me an e-mail "So sorry, I forgot to pay,is the item still available?". I replied and said "yes the item is still available". - Have not heard a thing since, and I am not holding my breath either.

Shipping cost? None. Send it along with someone who passed away recently. Just put it in the coffin. It should reach the buyer soon, at no extra cost.

Good one Miems. But will the "dodgy" buyer be in the same place where the item is supposed to be "delivered"

Which bank would be the best to offer this service? FNB would be too expensive.

Perhaps the buyer passed on to greener pastures (as opposed to passing over?) LOL

I suppose it's possible that a spouse or partner replied using the buyers email . If not , it's a really sick excuse to use for the late payment.

Sick...yes. Original...beats 'the dog ate my homework'.

Will be interesting to see if Buyer bids/wins other auctions and whether or not they are completed (payment made, parcel shipped, etc.)

I was thinking the same thing , it will be interesting to follow up and see if any further purchases are made by the same buyer.
