I make the highest bid @$510 for the 550ex, as confirmed in the thread.
18 Jun 10:12am
A PM was sent to me to contact seller at his hp (the lost hp number was given)Congrats! u won the bid at 510 for the 550ex.
18 Jun around 2pm I read the PM and SMS him on his lost hp number
18 Jun 4:41pm Another PM from seller saying
I read this pm at 7pm. Since he missed my SMS in the afternoon. I decided to PM him instead of SMS.buyer @515 not able to meet me tomoorw, and gotta sell by tmrw coz i leaving for HK sunday morning...do u wanna purchase at $510? if not i will pass on to the next $510 bidder....
When I reached home at 9pm and still did not receive any reply, I read the PM again and realised he gave me another new number, so I PM him asking which number to call, (I think I SMS him on the new number as well)
No reply from him. This morning called him at 10am, but he did not pick up the phone, called him again at 11am then he told me that its sold to the $515 bidder who called him again to deal.
I understand that seller has their right to sell to anyone, even though officially I am the highest ($510) until someone called him after the bid closed to offer $515.
I guess the least I expect is a PM to tell me that it is sold. Nothing from seller till I managed to call him at 11am today. Another excuse he gave was that he will be busy today to deal, so he sold it yesterday since I did not reply (well he should know that he lost his HP).
Finally, he actually offered to sell me his 420ex, well if you are the highest bidder for his 420EX, you better call him fast, he will just sell it to anyone.
OK enough of my grumbling, thanks for reading.
