Thread: Caution on seller

    Exclamation Caution on seller

    All,

    Had a seller on HWZ fly aeroplane on me. When I did a search on his mobile phone, I see that he is also a member of this forum. Good thing he is not an active member but I see that his only recent post was dated Sep 05 -> http://forums.clubsnap.org/showthread.php?t=153705

    His thread on HWZ is http://sg.hardwarezone.com/classifie...d=18&id=773588.

    Here's the incident I encountered today:
    1. Confirmed with seller last night to buy the Sony T1 at $260 today.
    2. Confirmed again at 9:58 am today to meet at Segar LRT at 11:30 am instead of CCK as he got home late last night and not able to deal early, so I offered to meet him at LRT close to his home.
    3. Was about to board the LRT with my wife and daughter when I received SMS to cancel the transaction at 11:01 am today, claiming the brother decided not to sell.

    A very inconsiderate seller and think others should be aware. This is not to stop other from dealing with him but in event anyone should wish to deal, please be extra careful and confirm accordingly.

    hwz, plenty of such pple around lah... used to it already. and plenty of ******s who offer ridiculous offers for a new printer.

    some blardy fool actually offered a $90 for a NEW R210 epson printer. i screwed him on my email. and those who offered my ridiculous offers all got screwed ...

    but in the end. its the yahoo! auctions that got the printer sold.. heh!

    Have no problem with people cancelling transactions but not after re-confirm 90 minutes before the deal and cancelling 30 minutes before the meet up.
    Anyway, not trying to have prevent people from dealing with him but just make sure you confirm again and again.

    They back out cause be due to someone going to pay more. Although he have agree to sell to you. So to sell to the late but higher buyer, he tell you he has change his mind on selling the item.

    Once a late bider will pay about 20% more but as I have agree to sell to someone, I have to say no to him.

    Such crap are inevitable my friend. Juz take it as a lesson.

    I put my trust the buyer to exercise responsibility and integrity (not say last minute price crash, put aeroplane, etc) when dealing. Similarly as a seller, I exercise my personal responsibility and integrity as well (when I say the stuff is as such, it is as such).

    This flows both ways.

    But in this case, the responsibility's on the seller...

    but at least the buyer has to have some integrity and responsibility and some little initiative too..

    If what he said is true that his brother had decided not to sell, so it might not even be his fault if his brother decided last minute not to sell the camera ? So I don't think it entirely correct to blame him. Did he apologised in wasting your time and efforts ?

    Its always easy to put aside the blame to brother, sister, parent, wife, husband, friends, except oneself. What so difficult to own up the blame?

    Its not the matter of putting the blame on others, its whether he is telling the truth. If it is the truth, what the point of owning up the blame ? It is just the matter of trust whether he is telling the truth. At least he should apologised on his brother behalf. No offence, just my thoughts.
