Community Blog: REALLY? Buying used video games and stuff on the Craigslist
Some people lack the urgency or ability to check/reply their emails or their text messages when they want to sell their video games or equipment.
I email/text message/call about 10 people on their Craigslist ads regarding the PSP they want to sell. Some don't include the model #. Is it a 1001? A 2000? A 3000 model? Is it even slim? Does it have a memory card or chargers? What size is the memory? What's the physical/mechanical condition of the system? Did your kid smash it on the ground before you were trying to sell it?
They leave out so many information at times, it requires 2 or 3 follow up emails which spans over a week and they end up dropping the ball somewhere and forget about your email/text message altogether.
Then you find out a week later, after continuous follow up, they say "Sorry dude, it's sold". I'm like WTF man. I been trying to follow up with you and you sell it to some random fucker that says, "I'll buy".
I'm surprised that anyone ever sells anything on craigslist because i get the feeling that 95% of the sellers on there are so lackadaisy that they never really wanted to sell it in the first place. They post it online to see how much it's worth locally and never reply back to you.
Show some damn common courtesy because the guy asking for the price and is WILLING to meet up anytime just MIGHT be looking to play PERSONA and P3P and needs to find a PSP locally.
