Name and shame time wasters

Post by Rocket Ron » Fri May 13, 2016 8:01 am

Is it just me or is this now the norm.......you put am add in the wanted section, you get a reply saying, yes I have what your after with a price, they say, can you send me a picture as they want to see what there buying, you send a picture, you hear no more from them even if you send the picture again and mail them.
The item in question was a clutch pedal, we all know what it looks like I guess, so having sent him the said picture, you'd think he would at least have the decency to reply with a yes or no, and if a no, then did he really need a pedal in the first place as looking at the post, no one else offered him one.
So, if your reading this then you know it's aimed at you, time waster........ :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :twisted: :evil: :evil: :evil: :evil:

What I advertise is what I sell, if it's genuine I say so, if it's repro I bin it.

There is difference in people asking if some one has something and then not responding...
Anyone who puts things up for sale has to find a willing buyer...
I will check my reply...
I thought it did answer your query..
Was unaware I owed you are reply...thought it was a positive maybe...
Maybe I am still undecided....but I will recheck if I have the mail still..
When I look back it may have been ahem...
deleted.
One way or other I will reply..
Sorry..

The thing is G,,

Im not saying you have to be my willing buyer…… BUT after i posted the ad you did ask if i would lower my price to what you wanted to pay and i did, then you went silent (decorating and work) What i didn't understand is why haggle if you not buying??

Rant over (please)

Eric.

Name and shame should be allowed then people could say why they moan about other people.
Instead of ......

But it would ruin the good nature if the club...forum.

The real trolls would take over...
Not the just
Other restorers are available...
If we went to allow it with genuine reviews then it would be a case of
Carefull what you wished for...

As it is we can steer people to others for comment...With PMs.

Rocket Ron is one if the good genuine guys (shame he cannot get the hang of posting pictures...I do it direct from my phone that I take the picture with from gallery...but he still has a camera that takes onto a roll of film) and wicker..
