Re: Anyone else getting played?

I don't remind people, I can't remember what I need to do most the time so I certainly am not going remind others of what they need to do.
If I give my pp address and they don't pay the same day I check to see if they opened my pm and if they have then I assume they don't want it and move on.
As a buyer, I pay as soon as I get the pp address period!

Re: Anyone else getting played?

I just had this happen! So frustrating! It was for a very large starter stash lot and the buyer specifically told me "sorry to ask so many questions, I'm really interested and really want these!" Gave her my PP address. She made it a point to say how much she wanted stuff multiple times. I had to price and take pictures of and sort and organize like 50 diapers + additional inserts + accessories. I took the time to make boxes for her and put goodies in them. I answered tons of questions for me... and then she just disappears. Wasn't on the forum for like a week then is back. I PM her and ... nothing.

Re: Anyone else getting played?

Yeah.. I cannot wait to get the last of our diapers out of here! Just had a mama tell me she was buying the last 5 of my embellished obf prefolds, and I gave her a deal of $32ppd for all 5! She took my paypal and said she'd pay by the evening. This morning, no payment or pm so I message her a reminder, and she tells me her DH said since they can get new cotton prefolds cheaper, she couldn't buy these. I finally snapped. I flat out told her how rude it was for her to tell me she was paying for these, ask for my paypal address, and not even bother asking her DH until afterwards, or bothering to even let me know she wasn't going to pay! I told her I blocked her as well, so I don't have to deal with her stinging me along again. I am SOOO done selling...

Re: Anyone else getting played?

This has been happening to me so much.. I don't get it. Also, people trying to pay NOTHING for something. And offering you 1/2 of what it's listed for and then telling you they found it for cheaper.. WTHeck is wrong with people?

You go to their user profile page and click [User Lists] at the top of their info box, and it gives you the option to "Add to Ignore List". You won't see their posts anymore, and I don't think they can pm you either.

This happened to me, but they wanted me to hold it until they got paid in a week, which I stupidly held it for them.....and now they won't answer their PM.

I hear you mama's. Exact.same.thing. for me as well. I really need to clear my things out, but it kills me that I have to pretty much give it away.

Re: Anyone else getting played?

Yup. I am getting played as we speak. I have sworn many times I would stop selling my stuff, and for the most part I have. People just want me to give it all away or just stop talking and it pisses me off. I know they are on here, but they won't respond. So frustrating.
