STALKERS ALERT ! !

Why do you persist to have a fascination with me if you can’t stomach my use of this site.

Weird much.

2 clicks and everyone can see your profile. Nobody has a fascination with you, you just talk a lot of shit without being able to take it.

Well yes you can, though it’s easy to do that on Facebook, Shpock, Gumtree and eBay too.

Easiest way to tell if they have fiddled it or not is look at a couple of the ads, they have listed dates on. If they have sold 100 items in 2 weeks then it’s suspect. I’ve sold 400 odd items over 7 or so years so it’s not too hard to stack up big sales histories legitimately also.

It’s common sense, just simple common sense

Hey all, just a fair warning, don't sell anything to user Smithrbrian1.

He contacted me the other day about my dropper post for sale, and we came to a deal and set up a time and place to meet. The day of the sale, he asked if we could change the location, I said it was fine, since I lived closer anyway.

I arrived at our meeting spot about 10 min early, like a good little seller. I waited until about 15min past our proposed meeting time and sent him a message that I was there waiting...nothing. I waited another 15 minutes, nothing, message not read. I sent him another message simply asking that he let me know if he's still coming so I dont wait a long time for nothing...no response. As I prepared to leave, about 20 min later, i checked once more and, whataya know, message read and no reply.

What a time waster, I've been on here since 2006 buying and selling , and that's the first time that has happened to me. From my determination, he seemed ok from our discussion, but just randomly decided to bail.

This has happened probably 8 or 9 times in the last year to me. Maybe its worse in socal? I have friends that deal with the same issues all the time, thats just people though. Thanks for pointing him out.
