    Default Dishonest or Disappearning buyers

    Have you encounter one?

    Some Lousy buyers whom decided not to buy and disappear? Not even a call or sms to say that he/she decided to not to buy and leave you hanging there waiting and rejecting other potential honest buyers?

    No respond even after you tried to contact them

    If I do not have the mood to deal with these people, simply sent your stuff to a 2nd hand dealer. Let them earn a living. This is a massive forum..there are nice people and "bad" people.

    Part and parcel of dealing with people online, not just CS.

    Honesty is a virtue, not a must. If its a must, then its virtually inexistence.

    but lucky me lah, most of my dealings is nice, i buy ppl sell, i always pretty happy with wat i bought...

    Might not be a pleasant experience either..
    last week or so there was a thread
    TS got VIP treatment when he put stuff for them to sell and earn
    but he got interested in getting something else they were selling
    attitude changed totally

    lol..

    Im ok with buyer backing out... just have the decency to send one sms.. sorry decided not to buy, im totally fine with it. there's no transaction until the money is paid.

    OHH that Idiot still sms me "To prove my sincerity, I will transfer you the money first"
    then next day "Oh can't seem to transfer"

    How come they got time to do this kinda stupid stuns?

    to the IDIOT = HOPE UR LC-A BREAKS APART if u bought one.

    just give a neg iTrader rating so dat others can avoid him/her lor... other than dat, it's blind faith on any online buy/sell. i've been stiffed b4 both on CS and yahoo auctions.

    bro, now that you mentioned it...... im quite tempted to give him a -ve rating

    this way we can save others the hassle of dealing with irresponsible buyers.

    I do not agree with the technique.

    Buy if he achieved his purpose, can you fault him. It takes a lot to be focussed.
