Default SO how bad should I mess with an eBay seller?

OK, so i came across a vintage stereo receiver listed on the 'Bay that was listed at $0.99 BUY IT NOW with free shipping. Of course I clicked the 'Buy it now', but I knew that I would get a message about a screw-up because obviously he will be out money with shipping a heavy ass receiver across country.

I figured they would be upfront and state that 'yep, we screwed up the listing price' or buy it now or reserve, whatever.... But I get this message:

Hi Eric.

There's been a huge mistake.
This receiver is not
sellable.
It was sold and shipped to another customer, and was damaged by
UPS.
We had placed the listing in the "Suspended items or Scheduled items"
section,to review it when it was returned by our customer.
After we got it
back, it is damaged beyond repair, and we are not able to sell it.
We just
forgot to pull the listing, and it posted on it's own when the listing date
came up.
I am sorry for the hassle.
I will send a "Cancel the Sale" email
through Ebay.
I hope you understand and your not upset,
This has never
happened to us before.

Thanks in advance for you
help.



My reply:

Hello,

Thanks for the update on the purchase.
I would still be
interested in it as I already own one of these and could use it as parts. Do
you have pictures of the item in the current condition?

Thank you,


Their reply:


No.
It was returned to our repair dept in Phoenix.
This happened about 3
or 4 months ago.
I don't think the Tech's saved any of it.
We don't
usually sell receivers, just musical gear
Thanks.


HMMM.... how do you have a 'scheduled listing' that eBay only lets you schedule 3 weeks out, but knew about it 3-4 months ago?

I smell BS. Is it that hard to be upfront and honest on something?

I got a new set of headlights, parking, and marker lights for my silverado because of a screw up by the seller; $45 plus free shipping

They tried telling me they were all out of the backout headlights so they had to cancel the order, I refused and told them to ship me a set of the chrome headlights instead along with the black park/marker lights. Maybe I should have let it go, but I said hell no when they gave me a bunch of BS about not having the lights, they had 10-15 other ads for the exact same thing

I asked: "If you knew about this 3-4 months ago, how was it still on your scheduled item list when eBay only allows 21 days out?"

I got a cancellation request in return.

seriously, you're fucking with a scammer, not someone who actually has any emotional ties to any item you're buying or selling on ebay, you aren't even amusing yourself by fucking with him.

I realize that it isn't worth a lot of time messing with them, but how do you figure they are a scammer?

I don't see it that way.... if he was trying to pull a scam, i would suspect it would be listed for the going rate for said item. Being blatenly the wrong price, I see it as a typo when listed.
