    some e-bay advice please

    ok so had my eye on an item on e-bay today and i went on with 30 mins to go

    no one had bid so i entered a bid of £12.50

    so it told me i was the highest bidder at £8

    i then go out and come home to see it sold for £8

    great i think i won

    however when i went into my e-bay it wasnt on my WON list and no option to pay

    so why has this happened

    and also how the hell do you contact fricken e-bay about this as for the life of me after 30 mins searching i cant find the right option to report this problem

    i swear they make it hard just so you give up

    Maybe they cancelled your bid

    Or the seller withdrew the item before the auction ended - happened to me a few times.
