There are bad eggs everywhere, even for TBH. Thankfully, they are few and far between.

Kind of quick on the draw there. I hope you are right and the guy didn't have a reel problem that required more attention than your transaction. You know, like a death in the family, illness, something like that. Good luck.

The only bad transaction I've had in the classifieds was with rtp.



He made me help load the 500 or so landscaping stones. You'd think for a dollar a piece he would've delivered and unloaded

If he had time to start a new thread in the Classifieds this morning, he probably had time to at least write the OP back.

I would think that the 30 seconds it would take to text me could have been found ( I know I would have been able to find it if I was still breathing) but I guess common courtesy ain’t so common anymore

My last few dealings have turned out costing me more. Worst was a piece of equipment that supposedly ran great. 3 wks after purchase it was overheating really bad and I checked a few things. Still had issues so took it to a local shop. Quoted $7500 in repairs.

Last deal I was selling and buyer committed to purchase. Paid me via PayPal and said he would get with me next time he was in the area no rush. Next day says he is on his way so I went out of my way to express it to location he wanted it. After a runaround sends me a text and says not going to work and to refund.

1000s of dealings on here and lately it’s been bad.

King_G is a great TBH guy, don’t discount him

Be careful calling people out too fast, here’s a real example:

there is a TBH’er who was recently hospitalized & unable to do his transactions & several of us got impatient. After I texted him it was very apparent why he went silent

Everyone be cool

I ain’t out nothing but time. I don’t need to sell just hate them sitting around not being used so if anyone is in need of a lightly used left handed Mathews or two they are both back up in the classifieds.

A man's only as good as his word. After having multiple chances to right a wrong, much less having someone else vouch/make excuses for him, sounds like King G's word ain't worth ****

I had an experience with him on a target he had posted. Another TBHer offered to express it to nanza for me and I felt bad.

King G is horrid at communication.
