Hurricane Florence Survivor USA Old Glory American Flag AKA “Kevin” that flew over the Frying Pan Tower auction brings $10,900 on eBay. A bit tattered and torn but like all who claim America to be home and are proud to do so, it still stands proud! Consider bidding on it to show your pride in America!

The seller claims 100% of the sale proceeds will be donated to the American Red Cross.
We are curious if the seller will get paid, since high profile eBay auctions often attract sport bidders. Since the bidding ended last night we will have to wait for the auction winner to be confirmed. OR will Kevin be relisted because of a non paying bidder?
Or will the buyer file an eBay not as described claim (SNAD) and be refunded his money? Savvy buyers flock to eBay for FREE Merchandise. Buyer is told to send the item back to the seller, but returns something else. When the return tracking is received PayPal is instructed to return the buyers money. Since the claim was mediated by eBay who decided in the buyers favor, seller is charged a 10% final value fee. $10,900 = 10% = $1090 🙁
This auction was mentioned today on Fox News so I felt compelled to blog it. I’ve been watching eBay since becoming the 1st used car dealer in my area to sell cars online. Historically high profile auctions like “Keven” manage to bring out the sport bidders.
