Responses to sale ad - hmmm



#2

I posted a calculator for sale, and so far I have 2 customers who would like to buy it. The first plans to send me a $4000 check from Canada and have me refund the $3750 difference. The second plans to have a colage (I think that means colleague) send me a $3000 check from Germany, at which time I am supposed to deduct the $250 selling price plus another $50 for my trouble, and refund the difference via Western Union.

Hmmm - it is so difficult to decide which of these generous offers to accept. Perhaps I should simply post my bank account numbers somewhere and allow them to carry out the transactions in a way that would take all of the load off of me - that would really simplify things.

I think either of the above transactions would be fine as is. Just tell the buyer you will wait for the standard ten years for the check to clear.

I like the thought. Maybe I could suggest that they use Western Union Bidpay to send me the $3000, since that is their preferred method for the refund!

#5

Perhaps you could put these two customers in contact with each other so that they could do business with each other. That ought to be entertaining.

There's a franch saying that I'll translate litterally : wolves don't eat each other...

King Solomon said "Who will embrace fire and will not be burned?". I'd stay away from those crooks and not even respond to them.

#8

Have both of them send you the check! Insist on this being an urgent matter, they have to send it as express letter.
They have to pay for the postage - you will have something nice to frame :)
