    u are plain unlucky to have met with such a person. you do not need to take it to heart. just ignore him. there are all kinds of ppl in this world. do not let those !@#$% affect you doing "good. this applies for other things as well.

    Well, you can further expand it to not only in CS or B&S section, but the world in general...

    I hear you, but your intention of giving away the problematic lens is sort of using him as a "rubbish dump"? Maybe he just feels offended after realising what happened.

    He explained the lens condition? And even if TS treated him as a rubbish dump, it's a free item with the card, so it was still uncalled for.

    Feeling offended and made those kind of request like 50% off the transaction amount or even pay for the repair?

    Agreed, just providing an alternative view.. Just think the buyer is trying to take advantage of the situation, and not seeing it in a logical manner..

    The buyer is a joker. $15 for 2x 2GB SD card. How much is a 4GB SD card in the market nowadays?

    Maybe the conversation went like this:

    Buyer, " Why did you sell me a faulty thing?"

    Seller, " I told you it is faulty already."

    Buyer, "When did you say it is faulty?"

    Seller, "Give you free one also want to make noise."

    Buyer, "What is free? I paid $15 for it. You better refund 50% for the faulty thing."

    Seller, "cheapskate." Hangup.

    Could buyer and seller be refering to the same thing.

    Read the first tread again, it was mentioned by the seller that the lens was faulty, and that buyer wants the AF to be repaired. So they were talking about the lens and not about 'faulty' SD cards.......

    i once had a friend who met a stranger in a camera shop that gave him a mint set of Nikon macro ( SB-R200) bought for only a couple months. Reason was he didnt know how to use the flash. My friend thanked him and never complained.

    I wish there are more of such strangers around.

    tell him ok, then take back the sd card and run off

    then now he can really expose you
