Default Bad Seller Alert - BBAXJ. Sort of, maybe, you be the judge

Yep, gotta add one of these threads for myself. I'm selling a beater truck and told a member on here he could have it on Friday for $400. I've been trying to sell it for a few weeks and have dropped the price significantly from what I anted. I got an offer for a guy to pick it up tonight for $550. I'm losing money as it is, so the $150 makes a difference....had to take the offer. Dick move on my part, but I did at least contact the original buyer, told him the situation, and gave him the option of buying it Friday for the $550. A deal is a deal and he understandably stood firm at $400. I didn't wanna sell it out from under him, but $150 is $150. Sorry dude!

Well, you came clean instead of lying about it, or spinning up stories on how the Chief of Popo called you while you fed, bathed, and washed and painted the exterior of your poor hungry injured grandparents.

Yeah well if the guys super pro 2 trophy baja buggy didn't have a flat he could have gave the extra $150. You have no mercy you big jerk. He was going to pay in $10 checks too. What's better than that?

I always say first come first serve with any offer / verbal deal. As long as you say that youre good. BBABJ on the other hand is a bad seller. Only thing that could correct this situation are pics of his wife mostly naked.

Cash in hand, kinda sketchy, you did have a scheduled pick up time set though. But you at least called the guy....

I still like you, you get a kickstamp of approval.

As long as no deposit was taken, the only wrong you did was telling the guy you would hold it for him. Next time just say "if i still have it friday, I will take $XXX".

I completely agree. I tend to be more lenient with people on here so I made the mistake of not saying that. Several weeks had gone by with no serious interest on craigslist, then within a couple hours of the plan for Friday the interest and offers were rolling in. I absolutely should have made it clear that I wasn't gonna hold it, I take full responsibility for that. I wasn't expecting much other interest so I figured it was low risk. If it were a $5000 vehicle I would've just eaten the $150 to hook up a member on here, but for this it ended up being almost 50% more on top of the selling price. My mistake, and my apologies to the prospective buyer on here. He hadn't seen the truck in person and no deposit was taken, so no real harm was done other than me making a bad move.

You said you would hold it at that price. You didn't say you would hold it against a higher price. Bummer for the buyer but that's the way it goes. Cash in hand is a pretty widespread concept. Good for you fore coming clean.

Some guy on craigslist. I was asking $550(after several price drops) and was willing to let it go cheaper to a member on here before I scrap it this weekend since I hadn't had any real interest. It wasn't a bad deal at $550 but needs some work, which I was honest about in the ad. I'm actually a pretty damn good seller but figured I'd let you guys have some fun with my questionable handling of this situation.

Good to know. I won't be contacting you about any future items you have for sale.
