    Default Time wasters !!

    What is it with some people it really annoys me
    There has been 2 occasions when I have been let down
    One was I sold a item on eBay the guy asked loads of questions ect and sounded interested turns out he won I sent a message saying when I would be available for him picking it up.
    He replays and stated a day that day passed then he said can I drop it off at his work (this ment me going out my way back and forwards so I said no) and re arranged another day , yep u guessed it no show he said his car is off the road ect ect so I said fair enough I will drop it at your work this time I already had it in my car so I wasn't Being put out (as I could drop it off on the way home) at this point he just doesn't bother his ar@@@ to contact me so I had to open up a case to get my fees back what a joke and what made it better was eBay being eBay I could not leave negative feedback to warn other customers

    2nd time

    Was when I had a dog bed on gum tree , phone rings 5 mins before I was due to leave work "can we come now to pick it up" I said I was going to work on my night shift but they could come in the morning I said I Would get up at a agreed time they too didn't bother turning up or calling me to let me know (after I have just done a 12 hr shift ) grrrrr lol

    Dont get me started on the trials and tribulations of selling a Car... I have just been through it. 2 people gave me the right run around. One even paid a deposit then said could i hold onto the car for a short time longer... 3, 4,5, 6 days past nothing. Got back in contact and asked what was going on.. Various stories as to why he couldnt collect. Then asked for his deposit back!! No chance, it cost me more to re-advertise!

    Eventually a chap bought it on ebay, paid a deposit and true to his word came down, inspected, test drove did the deal and everyone went away happy. Time wasters are inevitable, and not being able to warn other ebayers (if you sell via that means) really does suck. Even if a negative lasted for 2 months then was erased, its enough time for them to understand that messing others around has a consequence.

    Yep I've had similar on Gumtree, had a few emails for a leather suite for sale, none of the emails made any sense, must have been Nigerian! So I ignored them! Each time they asked me to call them, sorry but if you want to buy you call.

    Also had a couple this week on ebay, trying to offer peanuts for parts, said I'd rather keep them than give them away! Tight wads the lot of em!

    eBay is starting to be a joke tbh I was watching a item I messaged him asking for info ect then I looked at his feed back he still had 100%

    BUT there was a comment on that he ripped someone off and didn't honour the sale so as soon as I seen that I thought nahh and left it Afew days passed and I checked his feedback again and it was removed !! So now I'm very careful I read alot ofthe feedback I think it's shocking now that you can't leave a negative strike it has to be a posative (with the negative write up if you know what I mean ) I think it depends on how many stars you have too with the feedback carry on

    I had a bloke bid on my old vec on ebay.he eventually was 20 quid under the reserve when it ended so i did the second chance offer thing thinking he would have it but thats where it went downhill,i put in the add that the winning bidder would pay the final price and not to haggle as they could view it first and i needed it collecting within 3 days.well firstly he started knocking me down and not by small amounts and then said he couldnt pick it up for 2weeks anyway!why bother bidding when it states certain things in the add?
    Needless to say i told him to forget it and put it back on again!
