I had bid on an iterm this week end and lost out. This morning in my inbox I get a second chance bidder notice along with the ebay security box. Is this one of the scams out there

The Second Chance offer can be from a seller who has duplicate items, and offers them to other bidders, or the winning bidder may have backed out.

There are some scams out there though. Check to make sure it is the same item and seller. Ask the seller why he is offering the second chance.

I will do it on occasion when I have several similar items

I have gotten these but some times I think the seller uses them to puss you to max. bid.

I had a seller who won by bidding $5000, but he meant to type $50.00 (on a $60 retail item). Told him to forget it & sent 2nd chance offers.
