I also don't understand. Are you saying that you bid $350 and somebody outbid you with a bid of $290 or are you saying that someone bid $640 and won?

If the former is true, I'd send ebay's safe harbor a message ( I've been screwed on ebay by bots also, but there is little you can do). If the latter is true, then you were simply outbid.

That website (strangecosmos.com) has some of the nastiest pop-up, pop-over stuff I have seen in a long time.
