They're likely bogus bids. Ronnie you should be bidding this thing up to $160k to make your truck look more valuable.

Did anyone else notice that the seller's history went from one item sold to zero?

Look at his feedback of 50% - interesting

$90K, really? Me thinks that is over value for the miles, even if the 110 had a clean title. The bids seem very close together. Makes me wonder whether someone who's done their homework is trying to cash in on an Autocheck or Carfax claim....

The "seller"...has 11 auctions running. Only one other car has any bids on it. Who in their right mind would buy a car from a "dealer" with no history and no link to any information about his business.

One of the phone numbers on another of the auctions takes you to a shop in Atlanta. http://vriiautos.com/

I must say, I still find it odd, if I got a phone call informing me my NAS 110 was being auctioned off on eby by mistake I would make a phone call and end the auction. Auctions are ended all the time. I know Will says he is a good guy but it just seems weird to me.

So an inquiring mind decided to call Jerry....

Yes, VRII Body Shop is selling and they have no intentions of closing the action early. Yes, they know about the flood and title issue from CO. They already submitted the paper work for a "reborn" GA title and expect to receive in within three weeks. Said "not to worry, it was only a fresh water flood" and the truck just required a single relay to be changed. Sounded like the truck had a stopover in TX prior to heading to GA. Perhaps better for the double wash. LOL.

What a crock.

Fortunately, eBay auctions for automobiles are non-binding on either party (see eBay rules). This is even more true when the seller does not own the vehicle being sold.

And why not to use eBay auctions for determining sale prices of vehicles....

Wow, interesting thread. It will be even more interesting if Georgia actually issues a legal title for it.

So did the insurance company that paid the original claim, screw up?

No idea. Best to call Jerry who offered an opinion of what might have occurred. Thinking it was inferred earlier on this thread and perhaps he just read it here.

Generally speaking if an ins co sees a flood it is totaled no questions asked.

What a crock.

I do not know Jerry nor have I spoken with him in any regards. As such, I can't speak intelligently regarding what he has told you. But, I can assume from the context of what you've shared regarding your conversation that he has not spoken with Wayne since I last spoke with him. I can't tell you all where, how, or why a disconnect between the seller and the owner has occurred, only that there is a disconnect. Again, per Wayne (the owner), the 110 was listed in error and it not supposed to be advertised as for sale.

Do the states/insurance companies have different rules with respect to fresh water vs. salt water flooding with regards to claims? Colorado, being land-locked, would never see a salt-water claim, but Georgia, being a coastal state would? Since GA does maybe they have different rules for both and make an exception?

Regardless, a seller needs to disclose that the vehicle used to have a salvage title, do they not?

Weird - you can call and talk to Wayne, but Wayne can't call his friend and tell him to delist something on eBay....

Weird, smells a little fishy...not aimed at you Will - just an observation from someone without a dog in the fight, and watching from the sidelines.
