Craigslist Vent - May 18, 2009, 07:07 PM

So I have both my ZX10 and my Corvette up for sale on Craigslist.

Vent #1
I keep getting these idiots who email me, "What is the lowest you'll take?". Or my favorite, the idiot with the heavy Middle East accent who calls up and says I can't pay more than 1/2 the asking price. I responded with "Than I can sell it to you." Learn how to negotiate dipshits.

Vent #2
I posted on my ad that there are no modifications to my Corvette, which is true. So on my Corvette I put on these little louvers over my break lights. They are simple snap on covers take two minutes to put on or take off. Basically they are like the license plate cover which screws on over the plate using the same screws used to hold on the license plate. So Dipshit #2 sends me an email which says "Wrong. The tail light lenses have be modified. I wonder what else."

Unbelievable!

It's cool I figured if I didn't hear anything it didn't pan out so I didn't sit around waiting.

Good point, (though I have it listed on other pay sites). Craigslist does seem to have a larger concentration of village idiots than I think it is zoned for.

At least you aren't getting the "I need your full name and address and I'll send you a certified check with the shipping instructions".

What f*cking ever!!!!

I think maybe the scammers have finally realized by lack of response that nobody is falling for it anymore...?

I haven't had that at all for the last several ads I'd posted. Weird, right...

I had someone send me a $900 money order. Decided to try it out knowing it was fake. Took it to the post office and the lady looked at it and said youll have to come back when we have that much. Guess the Brinks truck just came. I never went back but I always wondered if she would have cashed it. This was a very small town post office.


I am ready to meet my maker but is my maker ready for the ordeal of meeting me...

I posted my car for $1000 or best offer and got a guy that hit me up asking if I would take $300. My reply "HaHaHaHa your offer is far from the best actually it is the worse Thank you try again"

Hey came back with "I need a car real bad and only have $300 to spend"

My reply was "good luck cause you also need another $600 to get my car"

When I was selling my rx-7 on craigslist, I had 6 parties arrange to see the car, i.e. a set time and directions. Only one showed up and bought the car. The others never even notified me that they weren't coming. I expected a few flakes, but that's a pretty horrible average.
