Default Buyer rant. Bocked me!

Found a nice auction with a 6139 case and ring. Messaged the seller asking for a better photo, or if the writing was still present on the inner rotating ring. They never responded so I set an alarm to bid in the middle of the night. Submitted my bid and rejected due to the seller blocking me.

I guess if someone asks a question before hand, they are probably pain in the ass. I was pissed! I have been following it for a week.

With that type seller, you were probably lucky.

Some sellers have their auction listing set to automatically block certain bidders, for example overseas bidders or bidders with low feedback... so don't take it personally.

I am in the USA, same as the seller and have 500+ feedback with no problems. This was set after I asked for a better photo or a answer to my simple question

I'm not sure how one can block bidders on Ebay (beside ones with two or three feedbacks), if anyone knows please explain it here.

Is It wrong to block someone with 0 feedback who says they just signed up to buy my watch as a gift?

Sounds like he knew you were gonna catch him selling something that was defective or knew you would complain about it after recieving it and blocked you to avoid any problems.
