Responded to a For Sale Ad. Had postitive exchange via PMs.
Seller said they'd be in San Jose today. Today has come and gone...Not one word. Nada.

I should have known it'd be a weird one when he posted a second had with a higher price for the EXACT SAME GUN!!!

Grrrrr

That sucks. I got stood up with one of my transaction too. I should have left a negative feedback for that guy. Sorry to hear that. The person is a jerk.

the deal isn't started until you have a PHONE NUMBER.

I had a trade going with another CalGunner via PMs. He even set a date on when we can do a PPT and I agreed to it. A few days later I see a post of his gun back up for sale. I pm'd him to ask if we were still on for the PPT. I never received one word back from him. He could of just manned up and told me that he has now decided to sell it instead of doing a trade. I would of respected that of him. So to the OP, I feel your pain. I really hate flakers.

what a loser that person is... i always fear the same thing happening to me whenever i have an uncoming FTF transactions. i guess that's why i never go further than just outside city limits to handle a deal and always get a phone number exchange. if i cant reach them as the meeting time approaches, i don't go... sorry for your wasted time and effort. spill the beans and say who it is...

The deal is done when some one says they will take it.

Yeah Mike-
What kind of a loon starts two separate threads for the same gun? I feel like a bigger dumbie for posting on the second one.

the deal isn't started until you have a PHONE NUMBER.
Thanks for the advice Paul-
but for me someone's word is worth more than me keeping tabs on them. I'm not here to be someone's mommy. I've had succesful deals in this and other forums on little more than an isntant message.

Jerry-
that's exactly how it should be. Or better yet, when the seller says "it's yours."

I'm almost bit on that one too, but it just wasn't right. Not enough info, dupe posts, etc.

I got stood up on a deal where I was supposed to sell one LMT detachable carry handle and one BCM M4 handguard for $110 shipped. Once the deal was agreed upon via PM the buyer has not been heard of. It will be two weeks on Saturday since we made the deal. I sent two PMs since then, the last I gave a deadline on when I will still accept the payment. The Calgunner in question only has 9 posts, all of them in the WTB/WTS section. I hate those people who just use Calguns to buy and sell only to not make good on a deal. I am waiting until Saturday until I submit negative iTrader feedback for this member.

God bless 'em, LOL

I'm okay with outing them (howevr negative feedback?), with only a handful of posts, it's not like he has such sa big investment in these forums.

I agree that's screwed up. It wastes a lot of time and gas - both of which are expensive and in short supply.

Definitely you should ding the Seller with a negative feedback. Our Word is Our Bond; Flakes and Bozos are not welcomed to our community.

If you don't ding them, we won't know what kind of flake this person is/was. If you're concerned about retribution on your iTrader rating, check with the Mods.
