It's not part of the identity fraud scheme, but it still peeses me off. What? Why the ending of auctions early phenom:

Hawaiian Inn mugs

Just aggravating.

Midnite,
That auction ended early because that seller had those mugs for 5.99 each in her space at an antique mall and couldn't sell them. As such, she opened the auction at $24.95 for all four in the hopes that she could sell them on eBay for at least what she was originally asking for in her antique mall space.

I emailed her and offered her $10.00 each ($40.00 total) which was 60% more than her original asking price if she closed the auction for me. And she did - can't wait to get them. Oh wait - I'm just kidding.
