*Dumb Question Alert* Re: Facebook Groups

Recommended Posts

Starting to really get annoyed by one of the so called "veterans" of the hobby. With his own grab bag featuring no name minor league players and now a defunct UHL teams s***ty practice jerseys with no fight strap and sublimated logo for 60 bucks. Come on, it's a freaking beer league jersey. I can go pick up a brand new NHL practice with sewn everything and a fight strap for 60.

Some guy on ebay messaged me an offer on a listing where I do not have "best offer" option.  I said "no thank you" and he replied "that's not how it works, you are supposed to counter."  To be 100% fair, the offer wasn't that bad of a starting point, but I am offering free insured shipping (which isn't cheap) + ebay fees and pretty much set the jersey the lowest Im willing to go on ebay for it.  

 

If you're on here, let's talk and make a deal. 

 

Edit: I also love the "I have no money left for THAT jersey, but are you ready to move a jersey you dont want to move yet?"

LOL, I had that yesterday. Someone made me an offer on a non-BIN and I asked if they were on any FB groups and signed my name. Their response "Yes, I am" and never contacted me. With ebay's draconian measures, unfortunately, its difficult to spell out for those who aren't bright.

Exactly. I dont understand why people don't do that more often.  Chances are if he gave me his name, we would have had a deal.

This is the gift that keeps on giving. 

Speaking of which, I think someone is posting from his wife's account.

It can be frustrating to try to spell it out for some people. 

The most blatant 'in your/my face' way I've seen to pull deals outside of ebay was a user with an ebay handle johnsmithoutlookcom ...  Just using John Smith as an example here, but the guys user name was just his email without the @ or dot.  Worked brilliantly to get a deal done off ebay.  I wonder if we won't see a movement towards that type of user name with ebays strict anti-fraud measures.

I got warned, then suspended, in December for violating ebay's policy regarding selling off-ebay.  If they catch you once, they heavily monitor your messages.

 

Edit: Only suspended for one week.

Yup. I made that mistake with JB a few years ago. Got a policy email update. Tried it again last year with another seller and immediately got a warning.

Is the Non Game Worn Hockey Jersey Collectors fb group still active? Either I’ve been blocked or I’m looking up the wrong name.

I am trying to search by that group but, cannot find it on fb. I swear I was a part of it too. Can someone please message me the name of one of the Admins for that group and I will reach out to them directly on fb?

I haven't gotten suspended, but I did receive a warning late last year immediately after I sent a message via eBay.

I got a facebook notification at 3:00 am (from an American) commenting on my post "PM SENT."  I check the PM and he asks if I still have a jersey, I reply yes.  He saw the message and has not responded to me. Wtf?

Maybe he was driving when he opened it. Maybe he was on the toilet and only had a minute to view it. Maybe his kid opened his Facebook account, saw it, and then went back to looking up internet p@rn@graphy while his parents were out. There could be a million possibilities.

It’s the world we live in, all responses must be NOW.
