The winning bidder, Patrick Munoz, told ninemsn he originally placed a bid for $99,000 — but that it sold for $15,000 because only 18 other people placed bids.
He now says the hapless graphic designer won’t be seeing a cent.
"I was just having a laugh about this," Mr Munoz said.
"I used my normal eBay account too — eBay is going to have the sh**s when they find out."
eBay spokeswoman Sian Kennedy said the photograph’s seller could take Mr Munoz to the police for breaking the "contract he made when he won the item".
"People need to be careful when doing this — Mr Munoz is taking the money away from the person who the sold the item," Ms Kennedy said.
"He should be ashamed."
Mr Munoz scoffed at the suggestion the bid was a binding contract: "eBay has to say that".
