OK so I’m raging at the min. pissed off isn’t the word.
I’m currently selling a pair of Swarovski slc bins 10x42 on fleba, over 70 watchers and bids currently at £610 i think with 2 days to go. 2 days ago I get a call from a guy in Scotland who’s interested but finds the need to ring of private number.. not a big issue just annoying. He Offers me £500 for them.. I decline the offer as I have been offered this from a gun shop in part ex for some rf bins already who told me if I don’t sell them on fleBay his offer will always stand. So me and the potential buyer of fleBay get talking and turns out has a pro stalker on an estate in Scotland.. cool I thought , bit of common interest.. anyway conversation progresses and he revises his offer to either £550 or £500 and a day at the hinds on his estate , I again decline both offers as I have ground myself and I am looking for a pure cash sale.
Yesterday I get another message of this chap offering me the same offer again and he states "this is your last chance"... again I politely state my lowest price I will take will be £600 so Take it or leave it as I am sure I can get this on the flebay etc. Conversation ends but on good terms and I tell him to keep my number and I will keep his.. as I may be interested in a Argo in the future as he comes by them quite often. That night I get a text at around 11ish saying he will give me my asking price of £600.. I’m asleep at this point as I’m working overtime and I’m at work for 7am.. Currently I’m working part time in sales in a office so I cant have my phone on or take calls at work. I think to myself ok I’ll give him a call on my lunch or when I get a chance and accept his offer. Didn’t get free till after 3pm so switch my iphone on and see I have a message of another buyer offering me £680 if i take them of flebay and complete the sale privately. I decline his offer as I have already in my mind done a deal with this stalker chap.. look at my phone and I have a voice mail and a couple of text messages from the stalker. voice mail asking what I am doing about his offer and why haven’t I got back to him. Look at the text message which is 2 hours after the voice mail and his message is as follows...
"HI MO YOU CAN STICK YOUR BINOS UP YOUR ASSHOLE, I DONT DEAL WITH ANYONE WHO BREAKS A GENTELMENS AGREEMENT"
now after reading this I’m stunned, shocked and upset. I don’t talk to anyone like this and nor do I expect to be spoken to in this way.. I don’t care who the **** you are. I always conduct my sales with the upmost sincerity as anyone who has done deals with me on here will vouch. I do what I can to help others, I even declined a higher offer for this guy but he was that impatient he thought it was necessary to shout the odds like a spoilt brat. I rang him after i calmed down a little and explained iv been at work and only just got your messages, im not sat on my ass all day looking at my phone but was going to get back to him when I got a chance. I told him even if he doubled his offer I wouldn’t do business with him and wished him good luck with his search for some bins.
I just thought I would share this with you all and have a rant to get it off my chest.
thanks for listening
