    Default Helping my friend to sell this lens

    Hi everyone,

    anyone realise that in the B&S forum, there are many ppl using this term to sell their items?

    Personally i think the reason they use this term is because when anything happen to the items they sell, they can easily deny and push away all responsibility. And most probably when they use this term, there is a high chance that the items may not be working well in some functions.

    What do you guys think? Anyone agree or disagree? Looking forward to hear more comments

    Here's an example that contradicts himself.

    yup. but if the buyer finally meet the seller and the "friend" is still nowhere to be seen, then most probably its 80% highly suspicious. Never take chance. It your hard earn money.

    I have also tried to help my friend sell camera and lenses before.

    In the end, selling through proxy or not, the buyer should check properly before purchase.

    Not all are phony as I know of a guy whose friends will ask him to help sell things for them as he has a good rating on the forum. You could call him a B&S professional.

    One of the reason why we disabled the posting of remarks in the B&S thread if you are not the Thread starter is because we do not want ppl to post all sort of unwarranted comments on the seller thread.

    Now this thread is akin to do just that ie. posting on seller thread to crash his sales or give unwarranted comments.

    I am closing this thread and in future any more of such thread will be deleted and TS will be given an infraction
