Oh that poor guy! I feel so bad for him. But at the same time he should of double and triple checked his ebay auction. I often double check mine before I post them. I also will check them again after they have been posted, and edit them if I still can.

I know you can help feeling for him. I also would double check mine before posting.

I just read some of the comments and blogs on the internet about this ebay typo. Some people are saying the seller should have took the negative rating and relisted the bottle himself with the correct name but correct me if I am wrong but did the seller realize the mistake he had made or did he know that this bottle was worth that kind of money to begin with....

I dont think he knew until the bottle resold.
