A 66-year-old Wrightstown resident has filed suit in federal District Court in Philadelphia against a New York man. He's accusing the man of reneging on a bid he made on e-Bay to buy a 1969 Mercedes Benz that was once owned by Elvis Presley.
In his lawsuit, Gene Epstein claims that Jason Shepherd of Ballston Lake, New York, entered a "buy-it-now" bid of 245-thousand dollars for the vehicle. But when it came time to collect, Epstein says, Shepherd allegedly claimed that the bid was a mistake made when his daughter accidentally hit a key on his computer.
The lawsuit is seeking for Shepherd to pay the original bid, along with 150-thousand dollars in damages. Attempts to reach Shepherd for comment have been unsuccessful.
