Thread: Are Singaporean Buyers in general a PITA?

  1. #1

    Default Are Singaporean Buyers in general a PITA?

    Having reserved a camera for a user on this forum for 2 weeks. She initially asked me to hold it for her for 1 week till her pay came in. A week later, she claimed that her pay was delayed so wanted me to hold it another week.

    Today she PM'd me to tell me that she has to send money home and will not be buying the camera.

    This isn't the first unpleasant encounter I've experienced.

    Are Sporean's typically such PITAs?

    Not everyone is like that you know. Please do not label Singaporeans as PITA just because of one bad incident. By the way the person you are dealing with may not be Singaporean as she claims to be sending 'money home'. Generally my deals on CS has been pleasant overall. In any buy & sell situation you will encounter such people.

    From my experience, generally no. Of 'coz there are always a couple of black sheep once in a while.

    This isn't the first time. One of several.

    If you believe her story, can I interest you in a bridge I have for sale?

    I mean, why Singaporeans? You should see the horror stories on the US eBay.

    well, since you are a Singaporean, i am sure you can ask yourself the question, and answer it with flying colours.

    Then the Brooklyn bridge should round off your collection nicely.

    Nah I can't coz I don't treat people I buy from, the same way.
    I don't ask to reserve an item for weeks w/o following through at the end.
    Plus I don't submit lowball offers for items.
    If the seller offers a good price for the item, I might haggle a bit but generally I pay whatever is asked or else I walk.
