Hey, I thought we could share our lowball stories... There should be good ones, where you offered less than it is worth, and they accepted, and so on...


But it could also be used here in this case, when someone is so utterly dumb, they should not be allowed to use the "internets"

That's pretty bad.  As a notorious garage sale lowballer myself I have to remind myself not to use those same tactics on craigslist.  Alex you and I have talked about this.

 

Nothing angers me more than making an  intitial agreement on the internet and then when meeting face to face the buyer tries haggling the price down.

I've talked to people and agreed on a price and got to their place and they said that the price is higher because they looked it up >:-(

Ohh MG, hate it!

I agreed to sell a NES for a price with games.  Lady asked if she could get it for like $20 cheaper, my response:


"Sure, if I keep Mario 1,2, and 3" 


Her "Ill just tak all of it"


So annoying, I mean you don't try that shit at the grocery store do you?  There are rules here!


I have never had anyone try to pull the I looked it up, why wouldn't they just do it BEFORE they posted it!


It is one thing to try to bargain at a garage sale, people typically don't want stuff at them, and are willing to take much less.  If someone accepts your offer, obviously it wasn't that bad, or they had no idea.


I did get someone who had the most crazy lot of games ever.  Dk comp cart, PD Saga, Earthbound, etc and etc.  and they wanted something crazy, and we agreed at $400 for all of it...


It took this guy forever to respond, and I asked for his phone number like 3 times, and then I said something like "I would love to buy this stuff, but it seems you are reluctant to give me your phone number"... Evidently this pissed him off, and he freaked out, and was like now I am not going to sell it to you. I offered him like 5 bills and he didn't respond, and I emailed him later and he said he "sold it all on ebay", which I know if BS once again...


Obviously, the whole thing was bullshit, it was just too fishy..  It was one of those scammers, hopefully it is no one I know..


Please confirm it was BS, and console me fellow gamers!

That happens to me too, all too often.  Either they agree to sell me something and never get back to me or agree to meet up and never show. Stupid Craigslist!

No pics, he was selling for his son, in the marines, or something, and he told him to sell it all.  I really doubt that someone with a DK competition, earthbound, Panzer Dragoon Saga, and etc, would know that it was worth some money, and it was bullshit...


This was the worst burn I ever had....( I also didn't buy 3 magical chase bundles that I should of)

Hey all!


I found myself with an extra, sealed copy of The Witcher 2 for PC ... posted in on CL asking for a modest $40 ... some guy offered me $20 and several 06-08 sports games for the 360. Really?


Didn't even bother responding.



The best is when they say, "I'll take it off your hands RIGHT NOW for ($200 cheaper than what your are trying to get). My bro used to get iPhones and I would sell them on CL when they first came out ... dealt with A  LOT of low ballers then. I think they're such assholes. Haggling is one thing, but lowballing is so dirty.

It is only the coolest modern RPG out right now. The type of game where the smallest decsion could lead you on a 20 chain quest.


Check it out here: http://pc.ign.com/objects/143/14345201.html


And yes, that was uncalled for. I'm going to get a pint of Ben and Jerrys now and cry for about an hour while watching daytime network TV. Thanks Alex.
