A 66-year-old man has filed a lawsuit in U.S. District Court in Philadelphia against a New York man who reneged on a bid he made on eBay to buy a 1969 Mercedes Benz that was once owned by Elvis Presley.

In his lawsuit, Gene Epstein of Wrightstown, Pa., claims that Jason Shepherd of Ballston Lake, N.Y., entered a "buy-it-now" bid of $245,000 for the vehicle.

But when it came time to collect, Shepherd allegedly claimed that the bid was a mistake made when his daughter accidentally hit a key on his computer, Epstein said.

Attempts to reach Shepherd for comment were unsuccessful.

The lawsuit is seeking for Shepherd to pay the original bid, along with $150,000 in damages.

"Once an item is removed from the active sale list on eBay and listed as sold, its reappearance on the active auction listings creates the impression that the item being sold is in some way unsaleable or unmarketable," the lawsuit said.

Epstein said, however, that he would settle the case if Shepherd issues a specifically worded apology he drew up and pays a "token" amount.

Representatives from eBay could not be reached for comment.

Yeah right, I made a mistake. You have to hit are you sure type stuff, probably relogin too. I think he just realised he bought a car for a lot of money....
