I've seen a few ways it rolls:
1) They bid on multiple items and only want to pay for the cheapest one (probably what happened with my brother)
2) They get pleasure from bidding and can't afford shit (that one that happened with lethargic on your BBS) or they bid on shit to create chaos
3) They realize afterwards they can't afford it
4) They think that buying used off eBay means it should be new in box like they got it from the store and they're too stupid to understand anything (the dumbass that I had that won the lens and was too stupid to read)
What can you do. They're losers. But they get to act like pigs because eBay decided that they had to side with someone, and they sided with the general public.
It's viewed as a shitty company from an investment perspective:
The letters are the latest sign of pressure on CEO Devin Wenig, who took over the company following its split with PayPal in 2015 and made bold promises of returning the marketplace to prominence. But the results have been slow going and eBay continues to watch Amazon.com Inc. grow at a much faster pace and gobble up more marketshare and customers. EBay has launched marketing campaigns to expand beyond its base of mostly 50-plus-year-old men, but investors want more.
I mean, they're driving off normal people trying to sell something and keeping people who don't actually pay for things. DURRRRRRRRRRR WHEREZ THE GROWTH
