Sellers renegging once deal made

Twice this week - with 2 different sellers - I have agreed to purchase something that they listed for sale - at their listed price - only for the seller to then "change" her mind and decide not to sell it. AAAAHHH!!!! I am so fed up and frustrated with this nonsense! They chose to offer it for sale, and technically (legally) once I agreed to purchase it at their offered price, the sales contract was consumated. IRL you aren't allowed to back out at that point - so I just don't get where these mamas are coming from. Do I leave negative feedback, warning other mamas not to bother with such a wishy-washy seller - or do I just let it all go and forget about it? Are there rules governing sale revocation on the FSOT board?

I'm sorry things have been crappy for you this week.

You cannot leave fb without money being exchanged.

Make sure you are paying as soon as you get the pp addy (most of us relist after 12 hours) and also make sure you are quickly and politely responding to pm's. If the item is hot the seller has a choice of whom to sell to.

I had the money (funded pp) all ready to go, but was still waiting for the sellers' pp addys. It's just so frustrating to have someone be so inconsiderate with wasting my time - and twice in one week!

Did they have to wait for you to fund your pp account?

Sorry to hear this, but you cannot leave negative feedback unless money has been exchanged...

I would just do what another poster mentioned, put the mamas on your do not b/s/t list and move on.
