I'm just curious as to why, by the heading on eBay, it states Free Shipping but the shipping is not free.
I will be paying with PayPals however I will wait for your response.
Can I choose 6 of your games up front and have them shipped for free. Without bidding on them and having you end the auctions, and I'd pay immediately. Just asking. |
No. Are you kidding? Do you even know how ebay works? |
No I'm not sure how ebay works. I've only been doing it for over 4 years. Maybe with your 8 full months of experience you could write a book about it. No need to be an ass about it. That's why it said, just asking. Typical attitude from the U.S.A. |
Oh, and before sending a reply, don't. I won't get it, you've been blocked out of email.|
But seriously, this guy's a douche. All of my NES game auctions start at $.99 and at the time of this email, only a few hours had passed and none of them had bids yet. Basically, he wanted to pick and choose six games at $.99 apiece and have them shipped for free. Not on my watch, asshole. Especially since the average price of this set of 40 was $4. Why don't I throw in a system or two, since I'm being so generous?
Lee_wc also made the logical error of equating time spent doing something to understanding it. Just because this one seller account was registered in '03 doesn't mean I haven't been selling since '98 (I have). And just because he registered in '01 doesn't make him King Ebay. Especially when he sells great items such as "600+ How To Manuals on CD-Resell/Make money + 2 BONUS'" and probably spent most of the early part of the G.W. Bush administration learning how to bid. Clearly, this person has mastered ebay and I don't know what I'm talking about.
Not only is lee logically bankrupt; he also can't read. He lives in Canada, and therefore would need to win ten games to earn free shipping. I know large, red, bold fonts can be tricky to read, but I'm sure one day lee will complete his PhD on Basic Reading & Following Simple Instructions.
This next set of emails aren't so much ignorant as they are bizarre.

Hi, this is very urgent. I just realized that the country I am in, Iran, is banned from using paypal. I cannot access any funds to pay you at all. What i was hoping to do when I had bid on some of your auctions was to pay with paypal and have them sent as a gift for someone in the US. Well i can no longer do that, and I will not be in the States for a while. So, I am requesting, that you please, please, cancel my bids on some of your auctions. I am telling you this as soon as I found out about this ban, so please so do not assume that I wasted any time or that is I had known I would have still bid. Out of 8 auctions I bid on, only 3 (# might change!) remain with me as the winning bidder. These 3 are: Item number: 8120827946 (NES Little Mermaid) Item number: 8120824156 (NES Attack of the...) Item number: 8120822966 (NES Bart...) I AM VERY SORRY ABOUT THIS, TRULY. Please grant me this favor, that serves both our interests, despite the inconvenience to you. thank you very much.

hi, this email is explained in one I sent previously, so please do not delete it, as it is being sent slgihtly later than my previous one, and you will see it first without the full explanation provided in my other email. There is one more auction of yours I did not mention: Item number: 8120826074 (NES Double Dragon). I was mistaken in the last email, I apparently had bid on 9 and still remain the winning bidder of 4 of them. Please understand why these must be cancelled, I see no way around this situation (explained in my other email). Thank you.

HI, I have tried calling you several times now from Tehran, Iran to the number Ebay provided me for contacting you (in Chicago). However, there was no answer each time. I no longer know what to do. hopefully this will all turn out fine and I will be outbid. (please see my other emails as to the full details of my circumstances)Please understand that i have tried hard to do whatever is in my power. I once again apologize for not realizing sooner. Thank you for your time.
He really did go out of his way to get my contact info as registered with on ebay, and people who know me will realize how funny that is. There's a reason no one picked up, Habib, but I'm not at liberty to divulge here.
does your kit include the duck hunt gun?|
Does this game play on XP?|
Hi, I just got Burbertime in the mail, and I was wandering if you knew how to change game speeds!|
