2141 KIPLING AVE., UNIT 8
I was in the market for a used laptop, so I posted on Craigs List. Note to people who aren’t aware, while Craig’s List is free, the quality of people on it can be very very shady. That’s both if you are looking for team members, or you are buying or selling items.
That has been my experience after many years of using them, but it’s the only free classified out there (www.kijiji.ca is ok, but doesn’t get the same readership) & a lot of people go on it.
So I e-mail with this guy back & forth re: a Compaq Laptop asking a few questions.
I’m ready to literally go over there & buy, but I have questions, as would anyone who is covering all their bases before forking over a large amount of money.
I want to know how much for another stick of memory.
He doesn’t read carefully & tells me how many slots there are for memory.
I ask for directions, he ignores the question, so I finally have to tell him to please read my e-mails, as that is not what I asked.
I FINALLY realize he hasn’t given me even his first name & we have e-mailed like 6 times already.
What kind of company doesn’t give out their phone number & name when they respond to e-mails.
I do end up getting that from him, his name is Ash Anwar (he says he’s the President) & his phone number is (416)662-5861
Then I guess I asked a question that had been answered in the ad, about warranty & taxes, so his response is for me to read his ad very carefully clearly making fun of my earlier comment to him.
Yes, an ad I had seen about 7 e-mails & 2 days earlier.
The entire time I was e-mailing him, his answers were one liners which irked me, as it seemed he couldn’t handle my simple questions.
I tried to call him, & he said “are you the one who has been asking me 200 questions?”
I finally got so upset because it was clear he didn’t care about any potential customers & that 3 simple computer questions & asking for directions was too much for this guy to handle.
I told him I was putting him on my blog as a joke, that’s when he said he showed my e-mail to all his workers & they were all laughing.
Like I said, beware of who you are dealing with on Craigs List.
