8. Choose Wisely: We want everyone to get a good deal and most will.  However, when you bid on the wrong item or decide an item is not suited for your intended use, our sellers will not assume the cost of your mistakes.  You agree that your failure to inspect or otherwise become fully informed about the items offered for sale in this auction will not be grounds for a refusal to pay amounts due, nor for any claim against the Auctioneer.
