Ha great read. Here's an interaction I had on one of the groups in the past month or so.
I post the jersey I received in the Toledo Grab Bag for trade for something Blue Jackets related and in the sell price I put $1.
"Are you really selling for $1"
No, looking to trade, but PM me an offer if your interested in buying it.
(I should have ended it there, but I wanted to see where this would go.)
10 minutes later I get a PM from the guy.
after a couple offers back and forth we come to a price and I ask for him to pay via paypal.
" The last time I did paypal, it screwed me over while I was trying to buy something on ebay but I can definitely do cash if your okay with that "
Sure if you're dumb enough to send cash in the mail I'll take it.
" Sounds good! Its going to take me a couple weeks to collect the money because my job doesnt pay that well so if you can set the jersey aside for me and then Ill message you when your money has been sent to you "
Sorry no holds, but let me know if you have the money and if I still have the jersey we'll work something out.
" Can you like mark it as sold? Because we obviously agreed to $XXX "
Sorry been burned on holds in the past.
" Oh okay. I understand "
" Like I said it will take a couple weeks maybe 3 to get the money collected "
Three days later.
" I think im going to pass on the jersey for now. Its just going to take me a long time to collect the money and send it to you. But if I change my mind, ill let you know "
