    Hey all,

    My brother placed a bid yesterday for a MacBook Pro on my account, thinking it was his. I can't remove the bid since it's less than 12 hours away. I just checked my email and realized what was going on. I sent the guy an email through eBay just a few minutes ago. The listing ends, as of this post... in 2.5 hours. My brother changed his flipping mind and doesn't want it :rolleyes: and now I'm stuck since it's on my account.

    What to do? I don't have $400 laying around... it is a good deal though, I might add. My (his) max bid is $451. No other bids...

    What do you think?

    I am pretty big on Ebay, I can say, chanced you'll get outbid are good. I think the avg. price for such a laptop is 600+, right? I haven't done any research on the prices, but that's a good guess.

    Unless it's damaged..

    If win your brother would have just paid, no? I mean he wanted the machine so it's irrelevant which account he bid under.

    Are you serious? He bid so it's his responsibility.

    Lock your computer / account from your brother. Else he might just take it, sell it, and say, oh my bad.
