Phoenix, AZ -  The Arizona Court of Appeals says a Phoenix woman must pay for backing out of an agreement to sell her diamond ring through eBay.

Court documents say Julie Rohr put her 10-carat diamond ring for sale on eBay for $100,000 in 2014 and Evangelos Armiros chose the “buy it now” option.

The records say Rohr later canceled the agreement when she was offered a higher bid. Armiros sued for breach of contract.

The court in an opinion filed Thursday said Rohr breached a valid contract when she changed her mind on the deal.

The three-judge panel upheld a lower court ruling by deciding that the “buy it now” option amounted to a contract between seller and buyer.

The high court also validated an award of $135,250 to Armiros. He did not get the ring.

So many normal people are sick of the tricks and shenanigans that go on on ebay and other online venues.
I shop a lot online and I was once sold a fake watch on ebay. The seller tried to use every possible trick, finally having UPS leave the package without a signature any claiming they never received it. I was ultimately made whole.
Another time I received a watch in pieces and the foreign seller succeeded in making me give up.
I have hasd sales cancelled after completion so I am glad this is finally getting the legal attention it deserves.

Speaking as a long time user, I think that you are being unfair to eBay.

The only reason this story made it to the news is the unusual expense of the transaction. In fact, eBay has very effective dispute resolution process, and will go to bat for an aggrieved party...I have used them a number of times over the years, each time with successful results.
