George – [email protected] – (416)727-3428
Another issue with someone selling a laptop on Craig’s List.
I e-mailed with him 9 times starting on Wednesday. I am clearly someone who is serious.
After checking on certain things, I say I’m coming into Toronto on Thursday to pick it up. I live in Brampton which is around 20-30 minutes away from Toronto, but based on where George lived, it would have taken me an hour.
Never once does he tell me I better come in on Thursday, he has someone else interested.
Since it’s a long treck in since I lived in Brampton, I couldn’t make it in on Thursday, so I tell him Friday for sure.
I don’t hear from him. When I woke up first thing in the afternoon around 3 pm I wrote to him telling him I’m still here.
I find out later on when I call him on his cell that he’s got another person interested. I said you know that I was interested, I said I can’t believe you’d tell someone else you still have it after all that, meaning us communicating for 3 days now.
Then he says he has to wait until he gets home at 7 to see if the guy is still interested. What? Guys are more important than women now? I had been e-mailing with him long before whoever this other guy is.
At 6:55 pm I call him saying I’m on my way & I e-mailed him as well to follow up because he told me to give him 1 hours notice.
The next thing I know, he says he sold it. When I call him to confront him on giving me the run around, that’s when I get the BS that oh, you were supposed to come in the night before which was just his excuse since I told him why I coluldn’t make it, & I kept in touch with him every step of the way.
So, I ended up wasting 3 days with this guy & I needed the laptop real fast since I was going out of town.
He claimed he was a professional.
Yes, I can see how professional he is stringing me along like that.
