Default Buyer made an offer at least 40 more than BIN price, accept?

I allowed offers to be made on a product which is up for sale, now a buyer has come along and offered at least 40 more than the buy it now price. Before accepting the offer i did message the buyer asking if it was correct.

Now have any of you guys had experience with this sort of situation? Buyer has lots of good feedback and has been around for a number of years. Just was wary before accepting this offer.

Seems fishy. Might be the case of a hacked account.

Agree...Seems fishy. Is the extra 40 above the BIN price lower than if they bought the item Retail? If so, I would be precocious about the buyer.

This has sometimes happened to me when someone from, for example, the US has made an offer of say 120 for something that I had listed at 90, (it would appear to them as $138.19) without realising that they are making me an offer in not $. It is either that, or a scam

Either a scam or the buyer is an idiot.

Even if it were legit and the buyer was a genuine idiot you could face getting hit with a nice negative feedback for not educating said idiot.

Decline the offer and block the bidder.

i certainly wouldn't risk it for 40.. they more than likely wouldn't pay anyway.

what is the buyers ratings like?

I was selling something for 35$ then when I run out of stock I raised price to 99.99. Someone actually bought and paid. Everything is okay.

It is still possible it is a hijacked account. Are they an overseas buyer or domestic?

Run far, fast, and hard...
40 bucks now will cost you feedback and more money loss in the long run later.

I never even knew eBay let people make offers higher than the BIN price.

It's the first time I've ever heard of Reverse Haggling. It might catch on in the markets, "I'm not asking for 50 pence, I'm not even asking 1.00, it's yours for 2.00 madam...Sold!!"

If it sounds too good to be true, etc, etc.

Avoid at all costs.
