Immigrant buyers...never again!!

Since I started selling some of my old pcs and phones - on the italian platform I mentioned in my previous posts - and because I’m selling most of them for (relatively) cheap, lots of the buyers who have contacted me were immigrants....to whom I’ve decided not to sell anything aymore as they have, times and times again, proven to be absolutely unreliable and unstrustworthy. The episode I’m about to tell you is a good example of why.

The latest immigrant buyer who got in touch with me was interested in my old phone (which I’m selling for about $145); he told me he immigrated to my country almost 15 years ago, and to cut it short he seemed very legit. So I decided to seal the deal: he agreed to the price and we set the date and hour for the delivery....here comes the unreliability: when I contacted him the day before delivery to confirm everything, he told me he would pay me in 10 days....but expected me to give him the phone anyway, and he was pretty surprised when I refused. He really thought I’d give away the phone based on a vague promise of payment....sure I would...when donkeys will fly. ROFL

That’s just the latest episode, and comes after a series of other experiences with immigrants buyers - to whom I was willing to sell because I know not all are the same - which include buyers unable to speak a word of italian which made impossible to negotiate with them, immigrants asking for discounts using the most ridiculous and pathetic (and absolutely fake) excuses ever, buyers coming to the delivery meeting with less money than asked for (and agreed on) and expecting to buy the phone anyway, others not even showing up at the delivery meeting at all....and many other experiences of that kind that only cemented the idea that immigrants are not reliable nor trustworthy buyers.

Sorry for this (very long) rant, but this experience was the last straw and I had to share so to let out some steam.
See you all on next entry; many cheers. XOXO

Of turds buyers

[EDITED ON 05.27] The same guy for the collective buying power group contacted me again (this time for a smartphone I’m selling)....acting as if he had never contacted me before. But he ran away and vanished the moment I told him I remembered him and put him back in his place. [/EDITED]

About two months ago in March, I bought an Non-Retina iMac...exclusively because, you know, cheap. I came to regret the purchase almost instantly (also because due to a shi*ty home network, the iMac doesn't let me browse the internet), so of course I put it for sale on the platform where I sold my old pcs....and, just like for those computers, I got contacted by several absolute turds.

The last and (so far) dumbest one was a guy from a collective buying power group who "harassed" me for two days trying to convince me to sell the iMac to his group; I refused for two reasons: the guy wanted me to ship the iMac to him - which is not happening, my ad is very clear about that - and he also tried to feed me some "a group is the same as a private citizen" BS...not to mention an iMac is a bit different from a groceries list. When I refused to sell him the iMac, he got pi*sed and called me a rude bi*ch....when he was the one trying to buying something pretending to disregard and ignore the sale's terms. Sorry, but that's not how things roll. That guy needs a serious reality check.

Another buyer (a girl) instead try to convince me for days to lower my old Huawei phone's price using sadness emojis...and she really thought that would work....as if. ROFL

Sorry for the rant, but the guy managed to pi*s me off and I needed to vent.
See you all next time; many cheers. XOXO
