After a little bargaining both seller and buyer agreed to settle in the middle, say $1,700 for a almost mint-condition cam. Seller and buyer seem to be sincere and honest. Unfortunately hours before they meet to close the deal, the buyer receives a sms from the seller saying that the cam was dropped and need to be sent to the service centre for repair and it seems to be not working at all.
Let not assume that the seller is faking the drop, what should i do?
1. Cancell the deal?
2. Is asking for a detailed Service report reasonable? If the service centre gives a "OK" report, will you still accept the cam?
3. Is it reasonable to ask for a reasonable price discount? If yes, how much is reasonable (in % term), assuming that the cam is "OK".
I just want to be a "fair" buyer.
Thanks for your feedback.
