I had a buyers remorse back in 2006 where a very rare (only one or two 
on the planet) vintage arcade game we were selling got something like 
$4000 at the close. The buyer (call him B/R) pleaded with me to cancel 
his bid as he said he accidentally typed the wrong amount in.

I agreed to cancel the auction.

The item ended up selling for around $750 to the person who was the 
other bidder (call him O/B) who had bid it up to around $3995. However 
O/B has since spent a fair bit of money at my shop and both participants 
are nice guys.

What was interesting is the buyer (B/R) who backed out, had a garage 
storage unit that he had forgotten about and the owner of the garage 
contacted me after not hearing from B/R for many months sold me the 
classic games at a very good price.

I ended up doing just fine as a result.

My 2 cents.
