Aaaaarrrrggghhhh!!!
« on: 21:59, 20 December 13 »
Ok, so I find an item on ebay that I've been looking for... It was a piece of retro/antique test equipment. It was listed with a starting price of 35 pounds, but the seller had only given postage prices for the UK. So I send him a message three days before the auctions end date to ask if he would also send it to Germany. The answer came back that he would (for 20 pounds), but he only answered a few minutes after the auction had ended, but said he would put it back up on offer immediately as no one had made a bid on it first time around....
 
 He did, but he put it up as a "Buy Now" item for 120 quid!!!! What a miserable f*@k!n w@nHir sh!thed fükwittt!!!!! Who does something like that!!???

Just wait for nobody to buy it at that price and then buy for the original price when he eventually relists it.

The last thing I will do is give that guy even 1 cent for his dumbass device. He can put it back in his basement to rot away forever. It's not that rare, so I'll find another one.

Someone who clearly doesn't want to sell the thing. Usually the idea is if no-one bids for it the first time around, then the price should come down.

I worry about falling into the same trap if I ever get a chance of buying a home even though one could see some of the advantages of the area, I think the key word to leave out is don't say you love the view cause they might jack the price up a few grand.  :(

Oh well, sleep over it and if you can get it for a cheap price then take it. You must not marry the seller though ;-)

In real life I have a seriously foul tongue. I (normally) try to be restrained online though.
