Thread: Make me think twice when giving FOC stuff...

  1. #1

    Default Make me think twice when giving FOC stuff...

    Really jump out of my seat...

    Post to sell my 2x 2GB SD card (deal at $15).

    On the day meeting the buyer meet a friend to play with his old film camera and a problematic AF lens (which he will be throwing away). Shortly we meet up the buyer to deal my SD card and have a good chat. We know that he likes to shoot film a lot and decided to giving him the problematic AF lens FOC.

    NOTE: We told him the condition of the lens clearly.

    2days later he SMS me said that I am a CHEATER. If i told him earlier about the condition of the lens he will not buy it even bundle (FOC) with the 2x 2GB SD card.

    I was shocked and call him back to explain that the deal is the SD card not the lens. The lens is FOC and was not mentioned in my post at all. It was on the spot gift and the condition was clearly explained.

    He demanded a 50% discount of the $15 he paid or I pay for the repair fee for the AF. He was so heated up and threaten to expose me a cheater in the forum if i refuse to compensate him.

    Of course my answer is 'NO'. He subsequence SMS i just ignore.

    Not saying I don't believe what happened. But, why not name him and let him come here and try to give his side of the story?

    Since he is not a seller i dun see why need to name him or even to post his picture here to shame him or warn anyone.

    I post just to get it out of my chest kind of thing and not asking for justice.

    I do not know his nick here as he did not PM me. The fact I ingore him is I dun care.

    Since he said want to expose me I will wait for him to do so if he has the guts to do it. By then I will 'response' to his post. (anyone pls PM me if you see a thread that mention my nickname)

    By the way his side of story....i not even sure if he has a 'story' to tell.

    To me...just know one kind of rice feed all kinds of ppl out there.

    Well, if I am a seller, I would try to avoid this buyer in the future. The way I do my selling in B&S is to ask the potential buyers to PM me so I always know who the person is from the forum. Since you might just posted you no. for people to call, then you have no way of knowing the guy's nick.

    The fact is that the dude in question still has the cheek to ask for 50% refund for a mere $15 deal.
