Thread: Im pissed off and feel insulted

    Im pissed off and feel insulted

    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

    It does sound a bit rude! To be honest though, if I have anything on eBay I won't accept offers outside eBay full stop, especially if there are bids on it as you are technically bound to those bidders. Besides, it's a sellers market for things like this and you just have to keep your bottle - don't think I have ever seen decent new-ish optics go on eBay for less than market value

    You put an item on ebay, have the decency to let it run. I think you are pulling a fast one on the bidders doing things properly and abiding by the ebay rules.

    Section 161 of the Highways Act 1980 (England & Wales) makes it an offence to discharge a firearm within 50 ft of the centre of a highway with vehicular rights without lawful authority or excuse, if as a result a user of the highway is injured, interrupted or endangered.

    If you set up an item as an auction with a buy it now the buy it now disappears once there is a bid.

    Buyers are not supposed to try to trade privately, the only time I have done so is when an item fails to sell. There are times when legitimate questions need to be asked, so the messaging system needs to remain active.
