Default Ne1 else notice? What would you do?

SCP auctions prematurely ended every auction last night at 7p.m. They claimed it was a fault with their software. I had 8 distinct bidders who had bidded until the auction shut down prematurely on my lot. They then turned the auction back on with the 30 minute rule, in which all my bidders didn't know what was going on. (They thought it was over) I took a huge loss on my lot, and SCP's attitude is: "A auction is a auction" or "If you don't like it, go somewhere else". This is what you get for doing 30 years business with SCP. I wish someone else would have warned me here first, before doing an auction with them. BTW, it was Clay who made the statements! What an ass.

It will make little to no difference but I'm sorry that happened to you and the bidders. It would appear at first blush that the auction house handled it's response poorly.

2 words for you in that situation. LAW SUIT.

They did not fulfill their end by properly running the auction corretly, there fore they broke contract and not you. I am not a lawyer but I am sure that is a common rule of thumb.

I'm sure lots of lawyers will be clamoring for this case.

I have two words for you if you sue: "You Lose."

You can be damn sure SCP's fine print protects them from liability due to computer glitches.

Default SCP Auction

I noticed the auction closed right on time like they said, but instead of going into the 30 minutes extended bidding period it just closed. About 5 minutes later, it came back on and went into the expected 30-minutes bid process. As a bidder, I was a little confused but checked back a few minutes later to see the timer had come back on. From there, it seemed to be a normal process. So maybe it was just a glitch for about 5 minutes.

How could this be? Why should anyone lose $100's if not $1000's of dollars for their issues. What happened to customer service? If it was a glitch in their system then the consigner should have some rights, right? Just does not seem fair to any consigner.

BTW thanks for the spelling check guys

I figured I'd let Clay (SCP) cool off for awhile. I called today after waiting a few days to try to resolve my problem once again.

He said immediately after saying my name: "Oh it's you" and hung up. I'm not out $1000's, maybe a $1000. How petty of this jerk to treat his consignors like this.

Leon, maybe he was referring to a suit one would wear when filing a lawsuit!?!

I think it's a reference to Lichtman's wardrobe.

SCP told me I had 8 different bidders that were eligible to bid after the extended bidding period. Only one bid was made after they turned it back on. I know that the other bidders missed out, because a similar set sold for more when it was poorer quality than mine. It also had more bids than mine.

I'm letting the board members self-regulate their spelling.
