Default Just had a selling first.. this will make people laugh ....

So a guy asks me about a David Thompson auto I have (this is on another forum).. He asks about multiple cards so I tell him I can do $10 by itself or $5 if he takes it with the other items he's interested in (its a Thompson NT auto /27, so this is a very fair price)...

Anyway.. while I'm waiting for their response I get an offer on eBay for $13...

At the same time the Forum buyer informs me he wants the multi card deal which would mean the Thompson is $5... I inform them I just got the eBay offer, but would give them first right of refusal as the first interested party.

The guy protests this for the next 3 messages.. and I tell him I am giving him the first right of refusal.. im not sure what else I can do.. I was offered 3 times the price....

in the 4th message the guy admits THE EBAY OFFER WAS THEM! lol.. and declines to buy the card.

In other words the guy was bidding against himself, then got offended when I wouldn't take the lower bid.

Has anyone ever dealt with something like this before?

Maybe he was just pretending that was him on ebay & it was actually someone else who made the better offer.

no it was him.. I told him the offer was 15 (price with shipping) not 13.. when he admitted it was him he said "13 is not 15" lol

If I told him I'd do it for $5 and then I got an offer for more I'd give it to him for five. You made an offer than went back on it. Oh well, I guess that's just me.

Wow that did make me laugh. The funny thing is that he couldnt understand that you were giving him the chance to back off or to take the $13 offer

I made a thread about almost exactly that (I was the bidder) and I got universally panned for it lol. All I asked for in that situation was the first right of refusal to match any other offer.. I provided that here.

It's all right there. This thread also lacks the ability to read between the lines.

That is pretty funny. I guess he didn't realize all he had to do is say no thanks on eBay.

I've certainly never had that happen. You should have opened it up to auction maybe he would have kept bidding himself up!

Who was the buyer? Better make sure he leaves a negative for backing out on a deal.

woooow.. I love how everyone turned hypocrite on me... What happened to "no deal is complete until money is exchanged"????

Amazing... wow... just wow.


I gave the person first right of refusal (something I myself was not granted just 10 days ago)... I was panned for saying I should have then.. now I am being panned for actually doing the right thing?!
