Sellers (rant)!

Ok, is anybody else sick of getting dicked out of sales here because I certainly am. This has happened numerous times where I have been in full contact with a seller with full intention to buy just waiting on more pictures/information on the product being sold. Mind you, this is me being the first person to respond to the thread, send a pm, and email the seller and telling him/her that I indeed have full intention to buy pending pictures/info.

I would think it's common courtesy to put that first person in line for the sale, but unfortunately this isn't how things work. Some people like to sell instantly whether it's a day or two, an hour or two, or sometimes even a few minutes earlier.

I mean I know some people like things gone asap but sometimes it's just retarded and upsetting. I just wish there were some etiquette in the buy/sell forums that were followed.

Thank you for reading this rant.

I'm seriously thinking about it just because I'm sick of it. Granted I should have known better since the users post count was so low, but it's happened to me so many times that I'm quite tired of it.

Really??, i have less posts than you, so i take that away from the list of things that may incline the balance in my favor, to be true, apart from a couple of times that i've been robed by bad persons in here i've never had any kind of trouble with something i really want, choose whom to buy from too, check their sell/buy rating and how many posts they have, if they don't want to willingly post pictures at once there may be something wrong with their parts. Remember the money is yours and takes a lot of confidence to send somebody , that you might never get to know in person, your money and wait for him to send you for what you have paid for.

My first buying experience here was great. Got a set of 15" 16 spoke OEM wheels that are in perfect condition. Positive feedback was left to the seller.

Sorry to hear about your experiences. I would definitely leave negative feedback if I got screwed.

Don't get me wrong, I've had great experienced buying here on FF, but there are always the rotten eggs unfortunately.
