I have 2 buyers for one of my scopes here but both have no feedback and have no threads they have posted here. That makes me uncomfortable. What do you think?

Don’t do it. I’ve been trying to sell my daughters phone I replaced when we changed service providers. It’s on my wife’s Facebook marketplace.

I cannot believe the messages. I listed the service provider.the firm price and location.

Guess the messages I get. Who’s the service provider, are you firm on the price and where are you located.
I’ve had no shows on meetups.

I’m done with these idiots. The last message asked what the lowest price was. It’s listed for $300 firm. I replied to the idiot, $350 firm. I’m gonna start charging a stupid tax.


And all this from people that have profiles on Facebook. At least you can look through the profile on Facebook to see what you are dealing with.

Like Mac said, we all have to start somewhere. If you're worried about them not showing up, then I'd make sure that they done the traveling instead of me.

PM them and exchange phone numbers. Set up a meet by call or text that is convenient for you. Show up a little early armed and use caution. If the meet goes well leave them good feedback. If not post pics of their carcass before you dial 911.

Absolutely... I wouldn't be going out of my way for new folks. Nothing against them, I've just done my share of getting burned. If they want it, they'll come to me, unless I'm desperate to sell. And I'm not.

I'd keep in mind that we had an influx of new people recently. Some came just for the classifieds after Armslist starting charging. Some people have been members forever here and haven't ever posted.
