If you are buying you need to read this!

OK, this may not be in the right place and the mods can move it but I have a real problem with people who say they want to buy something and then you don't hear from them for days. Then they tell you they changed their mind

When I put items up for sale I do everything I can to be fair and equitable for all those interested. I make every effort to give those who respond first the benefit of the doubt.
The problem is then they disappear and others who may have really wanted it and REALLY were ready to buy have moved on.

Crap maybe it's my fault for trying to be such a nice guy. From now on if someone says they want it but someone else comes in with the cash I'm selling. It's like they say on e-bay DON"T BID UNLESS YOU PLAN ON BUYING.

Its in the wrong place...you need to put this in with the item you are selling and not make an entire thread about it.

If you are talking about me, and I assume that at least in part you are, I sincearly apologise. I offered you what I did because that is what I could afford(I'm in college). The only reason I can't buy you're items is that I can't spend what you're asking and belive me, no one is more sorry about it than I. Also to be fair I was unaware that you were holding the item for me based on my offer and got back to you about it in almost exactly 24 hours. again I Apologise

It's odd the people that have responded are not the ones I consider the offenders. It only takes a few, anyway I was venting about an what will remain an unnamed few. Llama and shaneZx3 you were not those few, my apologies if you thought it was directed at you- it was not.

I will now shut up, someone lock this thread and I will slip into the night.

Anytime I sell something the first person to put the money in my paypal or accept the trade is the only one that gets the product. money talks better than words.

word. that's the only way to do it. i used to allow "dibs," but it just gets too complicated.

You know whats worse is when you send payment for something then 2 weeks later after the seller has confirmed he got your payment, you still dont have your item. Or sellers that dont respond for a week after you make them an offer. It works both ways in my opinion. If you put something up for sale, you should stay on top of it until its sold IMO.
