Yeah, for some reason people in Nigeria really like me. Once I was selling a Mercedes for 50k
(I ended up having to change my PayPal account because it was actually listed on eBay in my name!), a couple of weeks ago I sold some kind of jewelry
, and about two months ago I was selling a CAT bulldozer
. Most of them just show up in an email and not my eBay account, so I don't worry about it.
I sold a bus a couple of years ago with a second chance offer, but by the time the transaction got that far the buyer and I were talking on the phone.
When I was shopping for my bus last summer/fall it seemed like there was someone (in Florida?) that bought cheap/broken buses on eBay and then would turn around and sell them at double or triple the price w/ a one year warranty and the p/u location would be where the bus originally sold from. I guess that's business but he would advertise them as running flawlessly and I doubt that he would actually go to NV or MN or wherever and actually fix the problem. Who knows, maybe it was the same guy GoneCamping was dealing with.
I guess when it comes to buying a bus the best bet is to actually do the old-fashioned thing and pick up the phone.
