Ok so here's the deal. I put up an auction for a really nice camera that my father-in-law wants to sell. I put up the specs and the pics, I also put up any info I have on it. Keep in mind that I am NOT a camera guru.
But I really think that I did it justice and didn't overstate it. It's only been used for 3 rolls and so it's basically new. I start the bidding at .01 dollars with a buy it now for $650.
Much to my surprise, overnight someone buys it for $650.
I'm happy cause the reserve was $400. I think I'd seen these go for up to $1000. What does the buyer do next? He asks for some more pics. I oblige and do so. So he then says that he has more questions and isn't certain if the lens is a specific type. Keep in mind I never claimed it to be any sort of lens. I just said that the lens 28-80mm is included and added a pic.
He continues on asking me questions and states that he can't see some parts of the camera well and so I offer to take more pics. Instead he responds with "no it's no good ... I don't want to buy it".
OK my question is why the heck didn't you ask questions before using the buy it now option?!? GRRRRRR.......
So I go back and forth on the emails with this guy trying to please him but by now he's convinced himself that it's some sort of fraud auction.
I have over 170 feedback on my account. And I'm taking that kind of attitude personally. I assure him that it's what it is. Nothing more nothing less.
So what does he email me back with???
"the only way if you want me to buy the camera ship it to me , after i received and see how is , if the camera as described i will pay via pay pal same day."
Ok who in their right mind would ever agree to such nonsense???
So I responded to him in his own rationality. I said ok then I'll bid and win all 30+ camera auctions of yours and I'd appreciate it if you'd send me the items for my inspection and approval. Upon that occurring I'll send you payment. So far no response from him.
GRRRR.... if you have questions all I'm saying is ask first bid last. I just don't get some of these guys
Am I wrong peeps? Responses?
I'm out about $25 bucks in fees and such until I can get them back from ebay which will take 30+ days. Sucks man.
