Damn! Made a terrible mistake just now.
Was selling my Nikon 18-105mm, and didn't realise i was dealing with 2 persons.
All along i thought i was dealing with 1 person, did not realise 2 different numbers.
Met them at Harbourfront.
15mins after selling my lens, received a sms informing me that he's still waiting for me.
Felt weird and checked my sms, it was then i realised i was dealing with 2 persons all along!
Rushed down to control station to meet the buyer.
Explained the whole scenario to him and apologised repeated.
Even offered to send him home as that was the least i could do.
But think he was damn pissed off and left.

Still feeling damn bad about this incident.
So sellers beware, please make sure and take note of the mobile numbers you dealing with.
Don't like me make this type of mistake! :(

And to the bro, apologise to you again for making your way down.

Cos their sms style almost the same, that's why i never notice 2 different numbers.

can understand your situation ... sometimes the response is too good and especially when you have a few lens to clear ... you tend to mix up the persons .. with different nicks, different numbers, different linggo, etc...

had the same problem when i am clearing both the 50mm 1.4 and 1.8 .... :dunno:

Seems that a few bros here also encountered the same problem when dealing with multiple interested buyers at the same time. :sweat:

actually sellers beware and buyers beware!

Selles make sure you can uniquely id the buyers.
buyers make sure you give enough info so you wont' be mixed up with others :)
