    Spotted a set of coilovers on gumtree last friday, texted to confirm the condition and a price etc.

    Tried to pick them up saturday - the guy wasn't available.

    Tried to pay via paypal and get them posted - somehow the guy cant get a paypal.

    Organised to pick them up this weekend coming and pay cash.

    He turns round tonight and says he's been messed around too much so he's sold them to someone else!

    Is this just me or is that a bit of a D**k move?

    I hate gumtree. Tried to buy a mini moto off someone. It was already cheap, but he said open to offers. I made him an offer £10 less than he was asking, and he got really shitty with me. I said ok, I'll give him what he is asking for it and I can collect that day, then he went totally quite on me and future messages (I was very polite in everything I sent). I then see he has relisted the item like 2 months later, but increased the price a little. This time he said that he doesnt want to be messed around with again, don't expect any stupid offers.

    Anyway I message him again, saying if he still had it im interested, and offer that I can collect it that day for the original amount (£5 less). He sends me a shitty response, then ignores me!

    Its just like fine, wont bother then! Also been at the other end. Put something up for free, had like 10 people message me, 5 times different people have said they will come round, and still nothing, so its going in the bin lol!

    If everyone just stuck to ebay and paypal, or cash on collection and people had some respect we'd all be fine:D

    translation


    it's a scam

    99% of the time if they "can't acess paypal" they just are trying to screw someone.... offer to pay via moneygram and watch how quick he replies....

    I seem to remember the little weasel scammer was Scottish, which is probably why he won't talk to the OP.
    Too much chance they'd figure out who it was and go after em.

    Im having issues with a guy on another forum currently

    Brought something 3 weeks ago
    Then after a week get an email saying sorry been really busy not posted it out yet. Then 3-4 days later yep its been collected by parcel force. Then a few days after that get a mail saying my address doesnt exsist. ( well it does cause i f888ing live there)
    Now here we are another 6 days later and surprise surprise still no item and now no replies to my messages.

    Im of a mind to drive the 200 miles to his address just to kick him in the balls

    He's from near Dalbeattie, Scotland. His name might be 'Keir', and his number is +447494460272.

    I nearly bank transferred him a deposit, so glad I didn't, I hope no-one else gets done over by him!:smash::smash::smash::alschaser:alschaser
