A Pointless Thread About A Conversation on eBay...

Greetings to the Sideroom, hope you're all doing well up in here...

I'm selling a few small ticket items on eBay looking to get some FabFilter stuff when it's all said and done. One of them being a "for parts only / not working" made in Korea Fender Squier II. Apparently the Korean ones, 1990 "E9's" as it were, are worth slightly more than the ones made elsewhere later on.

I received a message from a member the other day just after he made an opening bid of fifty dollars. The conversation is as follows...

He opens, without a hello, by complaining about how he sucks at bidding:

Quote:
i know people wait till ts he last 3 mins to bid i bid and walk away so im sure as usual last 3 minutes someone will out bid me by 3 bux im so tired of the game thats y i like buy it now but thats what i do bid walk away lose everytime thanks
So I told him I didn't think I could add a "buy it now" because he had already bid, and eBay charges an additional fee, but asked him if I could what did he think is a fair price. 10 min later I get this where he offers $60 I think, only $10 more than his opening bid, and let's me in on his bloody business bureau battle with Guitar Center, but over what exactly I'm still not really sure:

Quote:
considering i bought one of the more sought after vintage white e mik squire for 120 with hard case and just needed new strings a set up and graphite tuners extra 200 cause pots and switch were bad if no hard case and the repairs needed price really with shipping 60 plus shipping unless u have hard case itd be more they always damage in shipping to but my friend wants mine but i gave it to myvson i got surfer green deluxe im just buying as s gift and guitar center screwed me i had to go back theyvhad my knobs sticking up a lot more made my knobs look wrong and they stole my original knobs switch to i told em i was buying that 1699 deluxe they fixed or adjusted pots apparently they threw it togeather i bought my deluxe musicians friend and gc called getting mouthy i told them i was filing a complaint with better business Bureau
Good to know you're somebody's father...

Without a second reply from me, 10 min later he offers to retract his opening bid if it'll help, use his moms Paypal, and skirt eBays fee:

Quote:
i would retract the bid if it matter i got blue star 100% let me know or call skip 10% my mom has paypal not linked
By this time my auction has 12 watchers so I told him I was going to just let it run out thinking it would be the end. I then receive this message, it's now 3am where he is and things seem a bit murky:

Quote:
i inherited alot of ww2 veitnam korean war memrovillia if you liked stuff or can refer somone i only have musuem pieces on here now at 3400.00
When I wake in the morning I respond with a final no and seeming to be running on zero sleep shortly thereafter he replies with this:

Quote:
ok but theyll do it i have 2 allready going to a friend i have 4600 in items on ebay airforce war stuff top gun helmet theyll go ill try but itll need a set up new tuners i use graphite ones add tone its just for a friend heres mybstuff dad left it to me besides mik i bought the deluxe with saling silver wings and uniforms flight suits
At this point I'm ignoring him because I have no idea who "they" are and what they will do and probably neither does he but if you're in the market for some Korean WWII memorabilia hit me up because I've got a line on some.

If nothing else maybe Numer will read this and half way through he'll get laid.

Re: A Pointless Thread About A Conversation on eBay...

At first I was thinking maybe it's a bot programmed to screw with friendly eBay sellers. But first there was the story about guitar center and then the picture of his room he sent me that quelled all that. Neon must be back in style amongst the sophisticated again...

Edit: and yes I had to google how to take a screenshot...
