Not really a nightmare, but I thought I'd bought a pair of speakers (my bid was the one that 'won'). A few days later, I heard from eBay that the seller had withdrawn the item because I hadn't contacted him. In fact, I had contacted him, and had also paid for the speakers via bank transfer. My money was refunded, and I just put it down to experience.

That really annoys me. It usually means that the buyer hadn't put a reserve on the item and thinks it didn't reach a high enough price in the auction.
