in certain activities will result in being banned from bidding.
the vast majority of our bidders follow the rules, a few do not. We
have adopted a zero tolerance policy on this. Doing any of the
following will cause you to permanently lose your privilege to bid on our
vessels. We will notify Ebay to enforce the ban and will keep track
of banned bidders by their real name so changing identities will not get
around the ban. ProjectBoats.net is
here to stay and will be expanding so, before doing any of the following,
you should seriously consider the ramifications.
to pay a bid. In accordance with our rules, you are not obligated to
complete the sale if there has been an error in describing the vessel,
however, if the vessel is as described, you are required to complete
the sale. Sellers suffer
losses when you fail to pay a bid.
retractions. Although entry errors do occur, the vast majority of bid
retractions are designed to injure our auction. If you need to make a bid retraction, contact us to do
it for you. For those of
you who a) bid for the specific purpose of placing negative information
in a retraction to discourage other bidders, b) place high bids early
to prevent competitive bids followed by a late retraction and c)
people who bid high to find out what another bidderís proxy is, then
retract - we donít want your business.
For those of you who are retracting to assist another bidder,
we will not sell the boat to the other bidder and both parties will be
other bidders. There
is no legitimate reason to contact other bidders.
If you wish to contact another bidder, go through us.
Other bidders invariably inform us when they have been
contacted so you will be detected.
negative feedback. In
theory, negative feedback for a seller is supposed to be a warning to others
of unscrupulous activity such as accepting payment and then failing to
deliver goods. Negative
feedback left for us, however, has always been false and made in bad
faith. We are happy to work out any problem in a reasonable
manner, however, we will not be subjected to blackmail and those who
leave negative feedback may not do business with us.
conduct. For some
people, the anonymity of the Internet puts them on their worst
behavior. If you cannot treat our staff in a courteous and
businesslike manner, we do not wish to do business with you.
