I'm semi-new to ebay. is it a rule violation for a seller to pull their auction down before the end date? reason I ask is some dude in the UK pulled 3 auctions which I was in the winning for. The items were quite low, and I was quite excited to get such a great deal...however 20 or so hours before the end time, all 3 were "closed due to lost or broken item" I think it's a bunch of BS, my guess is the seller realized he wasn't going to get anywhere near what he was hoping, and closed the auction early. If this is the case, ebay sucks. With that type of mentality, I would theoretically be able to list many things and if I see a loss in profit/money - close them early? I searched ebay about this, there's info about reporting the seller for suspicious activity, yet at the same time, it's noted that this is a legit action any seller may take.
