My shared experienced with a Fake and INCONSIDERATE Buyer
« on: November 12, 2012, 01:33:35 PM »
Mga sis, I would like to share my awful experienced with a buyer, she introduce herself as a member here in GT.  e-kuwento ko dito ang  buong detalye. last friday lang, Nov 9. may buyer na girl she texted me at nag inquire kung available pa ang item ko. I 'm selling  Canon electronics  i texted back sabi ko available pa. then sabi nya sige kukunin ko pero paano ko makukuha pano ko pipik-apin ang item? nagreply ako free shipping na sya basta around luzon area lang. at nagtxt ulit ask nya kung san sya magbabayad. ang sagot ko ang available na mode of payment ko ay via western union at cebuana lang. and nag text ulit nagtatanung kung merun ba ako bank account. kasi hindi sya sure kung may malapit na western union sa lugar nya. sagot ko merun akong eon account sa union bank. kaso kailangan ko pang e-renew if you want wait mo til ma renew ko card ko. or you can pay na lang sa western union, dun naman nagbayad lahat ng naging customer ko

meron mga western union sa mga shopping mall at google search mo lang kung san malapit sa place mo. nagreply ulit. sagot nya sa Alabang Town Center ako malapit. sige check ko bukas. send me your details sis. so nagtxback ako to send my full details name & address. at ininform ko sya if she can settle her payment before lunch. kc pupunta din ako ng courier at isasabay ko ng e-ship ang  item nya. once na na confirm ko  payment nya. medyo malayo din kasi dito ang  courier sa lugar namin. so nagtxt ulit sagot nya I can't send before lunch. kasi late na ako nagigising.nasa office pa ako til now. 12mn. pa ako dito. defnetely after lunch na. nagreply ako sige ok wait ko na lang after lunch.ok just text  me back pag ok na. i was waiting for her to send it back her details din pero dina nagtext since gabi na 11:30pm ng friday yun kaya wait ko na lang kinaumagahan ang text nya at para kunin na din full details nya after nya ma confirm ang payment nya at ma ship ko agad yong item

kaya nung Saturday Nov 10, morning 6am pa lang wala na kuryente dito. may power maintenance daw sa buong sakop ng electric company  sa amin. buti na lang full battery pa ang phone ko. so i waited her to text  me me back after lunch tulad nung napag usapan namin ng friday night. 11am sana nung saturday ay alis na ako papuntang courier. pero dahil nga sa after lunch pa ang payment nya so inantay ko na lang para isang byahe na lang papuntang courier. 1:30pm na tapos na lunch pero wala pa akong narecieve hangang na empty na ang battery ng phone ko. nagpanic ako. kc baka nagtxt na sya. at ina antay ang confirmation ko.
 
lumabas ako ng house para maghanap ng pwede ko mahiraman ng phone para mae salpak ko simcard ko at maetext ko sya or makita ko message nya. pero low bat na din sila. yong  iba naman wala dahil umalis. so sobrang worried ako. kc inisip ko baka nag send na sya ng payment at ina antay ang confirmation at waiting na din para ma ship ko ang item nya right away. baka mamaya isipin nya na scammer ako dahil after nya mag send ng payment e bigla na nyang hindi ako makontak. kaya talagang nag alala ako. e 6am to 6pm pala ang black out nung Saturday kaya ilang oras pa bago ako makakapag charge. dahil buong bayan namin walang kuryente. kaya nung 6pm na nung Saturday nagmadali akong e-charge ang phone ko at open para mabasa ko mga message nya. pero pag open ko wala akong nakitang message nya.

I waited a minute baka na trap lang pero wala talaga. kaya nagtext ulit ako sa kanya. at ipa alam na na empty battery ako dahil nawalan ng ilaw ang lugar namin. kaya sobrang na stress ako dahil hndi ko alam baka na send mo na payment tapos hndi mo na ako makontak. hndi ko na din itinuloy ang pagpunta ng courier. pero 1 hour na lumipas walang reply sa kanya. so i tried calling her. pero nag ring lang hndi nya sinasagot phone nya. thrice akong tumatawag sa kanya pero hindi nya sinasagot.

kaya nag text ako ulit. sabi ko kung ano na nangyari na send mo na ba sis? Im tryng to call you pero hndi mo naman sinasagot at dika nagrereply sa text ko. sinabi mo kasing kukunin mo yong  item kaya na prepare ko na. may buyer pa akong iba kaninang umaga (saturday) kaso hndi ko binigay dahil na closed na ang deal sayo na kukunin mo. at kinuha mo pa buong details ko kung san mo e send ang payment. kaya sobrang worried ako nung na empty battery ko. dahil hndi ko makikita messages mo. pero pagka charge ko ng phone ko. nakita kung wala ka palang message pa. Nanloloko ka lang ba Ms??? ayun nagreply na sya eto sagot nya-  sori sis ngayon ko lang na checked ang phone ko. dumating ang mag iinstall ng cable at internet akala ko saglit lang. ngayon lang natapos. bakit naman kita lolokuhin sis? ano naman ang mapapala mo? hndi lang talaga ako nakaalis.

Eto reply ko sa kanya. -ngayon lang kc ako naka encounter ng buyer na nag confirm na bibilhin ang item. at kinuha ang details ko at nag confirm na magbabayad. syempre ako umaasa. at hndi ko na din binigay sa iba. may lakad pa ako kanina pero kinan-cel ko dahil i was waiting for your reply. alam m naman na may pinangakuan ka ng transaction na ma settle m payment m today. ikaw pa mismo nagsabi na after lunch. sana inisip mo na may tao kang ka deal at naghihintay sayo. hndi naman mahirap mag text at sana kinan-cel mo agad kagabi pa. para hindi na ako umasa pa. anung mapapala ko? well naabala lang naman ako. i inform you last night na pupunta ako ng courier pero sinabi mo kasi na after lunch mo ma settle payment. kaya aantayin ko na lang para isahan. sobrang panic naman ako kanina. dahil na low bat ako at inakala kung nagtext ka na to confirm ur payment at kung narecieve ko na. ilagay mo kaya ang sarili mo sa sitwasyon ko? hndi ka kaya magpanic? lalo at nalowbat pa ako. un ang abala na ginawa mo. hindi ka pala sure sana kinancel m na lang last night, maintindihan ko naman yun. hinintay mo pang ako mag text sau. now tell me kung hindi ka nanloloko??

eto reply ko. I DON'T know if your just a scammer, but I really don't buy your stupid excuses. you can simply textback na hindi mo na kukunin para nalaman ko agad. hindi yung ako pa nagtxt sayo. tapos hndi m pa sinasagot phone mo. Now, I don't even know ur name. remember. karma will haunt you back. nagpa paasa ka ng tao. hindi man kita kilala pero andyan si God, na nakakakilala sau at nakakakita sa ginawa mo. babalik din sau ang ginawa mo sa akin. in due time.

she replied again.= why would i scam you? I 'm the one paying remember. you can't even provide a bank account to make the transaction legit?

my reply= if you're not scammer. bakit hindi ka man lang nagtxt immediatelly, to cancel the transaction. impossible namang nakalimutan mo? hindi naman toh isang laro para baliwalain. ganito ka bang makipag deal sa tao? may tao na naghihintay sayo. ilan na ang nabenta ko online, pero first time ko kasi naka encounter ng katulad mo. at lahat ng buyer sa western lang din sila nagbayad so far nakarating naman lahat ng item nila. at wala pang nag complain sa akin. kaya hindi m ako masisisi kung ganito reaction ko sayo. at in the first place. sinabi ko agad sayo na kailangan ko pang e-renew ang bank account ko. i told u if you can wait til ma renew ko or pay ka na lang sa western. nagreply ka. sagot mo sige sa western na lang. send me your details kaya binigay ko. Una hindi kita PINIPILIT na magbayad sa western IKAW ANG NAGKUSA at hindi din KITA PINILIT na bilhin ang item ko. kung may duda ka pala at ayaw mong magbayad sa western. bakit hindi mo agad ako tenext para nalaman ko agad? hindi yung nagpapa asa ka ng tao. kahit san ka magtanung sa ginawa mo sa akin. ewan ko na lang kung hindi sila maiinis. and FYI. Hindi ko itataya na sabihin ang full details ko para lang manloko sa halagang libo lang.


If you're sincere na hindi ka scammer or fake buyer, kindly care to send me your full details. after i sent my details yesterday. para naman makilala ko kung sinu ang kinakausap ko.

her reply= I've been in the forum for year.bought and sold a lot of things, here and there internationally.but i've never encountered someone your level. anyway, sori for the hassle and inconvenience i caused.

my response'- I've never also encountered the same as your level. It's strange that you've been buying and selling things pala. is this the way you deal with people? is this how you treated your customer? put yourself in my shoes? think about it.? anyway it's done. I've already said my piece. I hope you won't do this to your customer if there is..

Hindi na sya nagreply, she mention na antagal na nyang buyer at seller pero how come ganiuto ginawa nya sa akin.? very unprofessional. actually hindi ko naman talaga kina career ang maging seller online, nagkataon lang na merun ako extra at unused things na sayang naman kung hindi magagamit kaya nag decide ako mag sell online. I am still a newbie. I know mahirap mag build ng credibility as a seller pero i have 2 previous customer na din  who bought my item can validate me as a trusted seller. I tried to text my last customer who bought my item coz i still have with me the copy of the western union reciept. I hope she can read my testimony here so she can comment. pero etong girl na buyer na eto sobrang na stressed ako ng todo. kayo sis you be the judge. if she's really innocent about the incident. kalokah to the highest level. :(

^hmm hello, di ko na masyado binasa ang post mo sis.. kalahati palang pero eto sis ang masasabi ko sayo. I encountered a lot of buyers like that.. hihingin ang payments details then sasabihin magbabayad ng ganitong oras.. pero wala. hehe Normal yan sis! Hindi sila Scammer kasi wala naman silang natakbong PERA sayo. =) Fake Buyer!?, pwede pero hindi padin eh.. kasi buyer lang siya once may pera na siyang nabigay sayo.. otherwise, nagtatanong lang ang tawag dyan.

Ganito kasi sis, never never expect the a prospective buyer na gagawin niya ang mga sinabi niya. Gawa ka ng RULES and Policy. Tipong ganito, "NO CONFIRMATION within 4 hours, forfeits reservation." Lalo na kung ang alam mo lang sa kanya ay Taga-GT siya.. ni Hindi mo man lang nakuha ang pangalan niya eh so diba.. never never give your contact details to those people na ayaw magpakilala.

ayun Learn from that since newbie ka lang po sa selling.
And sis, normally ayaw ng mga buyers magtransact sa western union or any money transfer, di kasi siya safe at may charge kasi siya.. and One thing, she said sorry nanaman po sis. Di din naman niya kasalanan na nagbrownout sa lugar niyo eh, or totoo man na may dumating na sa bahay nila kaya di siya nakabayad agad.. Dapat palang kasi sis nung may battery ka pa sinabi mo sa buyer mo eto: "Hello sis, mauubos na battery ko.. Kindly confirm nalang within 30mins or cancel ko na po." or sana make the "call".

Lumabas kasi na habol na habol mo sa kanya magbayad siya eh, never argue with that kasi di mo naman mapipiplit na pagbayarin siya eh. ayun lang sis. :)

wala naman problem if she texted me the day na mismo na hindi na nya itutuloy. para at least after ko ma charged ang battery ko mababasa ko na agad. syempre mag eexpect ako kasi ang linaw ng usapan na kukunin na nya. hindi naman ako habol na habol sa payment nya, ang concern ko dito e pwede naman nya e-cancel at magtext agad since 1:30pm nung na empty batt na ako. dapat may word of honor sya. ok lang sana kung nag inquire lang sya. walang big deal dun. sa naging previous buyer ko kasi pag usapan na kukunin nya at magbabayad nag tetext agad. if may changes inform nila ako immediately.

ang mali ko lang hindi ko nakuha details nya. I only knew her nick as lady shiva. kaya para akong nakikipag usap sa hangin. it's ok nag sorry naman na sya. pero i just wanted to share lang here at least to inform the public. newbie ako kaya hindi ako masyado aware sa mga ganitong incident. buyer din naman ako online pero pag doubt ako sa credibility ng seller never ako mangangako na bibilhin ko.  kasi aasa yong tao. lalo at wala ka man lang text message para ma cancel mo agad.

^well thats the problem po sis of not having Rules on selling.

and not everyone on GT or kahit san man may so called "Word of Honor". If you as a buyer meron, dont expect others to be like you. Im not siding the other party here pero sis I'll quote you
I hope she can read my testimony here so she can comment. pero etong girl na buyer na eto sobrang na stressed ako ng todo. kayo sis you be the judge. if she's really innocent about the incident. kalokah to the highest level. :(

What do you want to imply there? Hmm papakita mo na mali siya at tama ka? wag po sana ganun sis. wala naman siyang natakbong pera from you para gumawa ka pa ng ganito. Worst case kung meron, ganun lang po ang ginagawan ng separate thread. hehe.

My last advise for you - Deal with it professionally. :)

@Calin22 Here's my super delayed response to your post. ;)

You mention: never never expect the prospective buyer na gagawin nya mga sinabi nya.
[/b] =OK, pero she mention that she's also selling and buying for long both local & international. so ganito pala siya as a seller and buyer? kung sa simpleng effort na pag inform sa seller ay hindi nya magawa. it's a big question for me na matagal na pala siya sa ganitong industry.dapat mas maging professional pa nga sya dahil alam nya ang pakiramdam ng maging isang seller.

Una, I already inform her na yan lang ang mode of payment ko. so may choice sya if e drop nya ang transaction immediately. dahil hindi ko naman pinipilit. kung ayaw pala nya ang western union, then why siya nag confirm na bibilhin nya at sya pa mismo nagkusang hingin ang full details ko at nagbigay ng oras to pay? yan ang punto ko lang naman. wala pala siyang plan pero bakit nagpaasa siya. profesional ba yan.? I tried my very best to pleased her, not because atat akong mabenta, pero i have my word of honor. Importante sa akin yun bilang isang baguhang seller.



/i](3) quote= di din naman nya nya kasalanan na nag brown out sa lugar nyo e. [
YES, at wala naman po ako sinabi na kasalanan nya diba?

quote. hindi mo naman mapiplit na pagbayarin sya. habol na habol mo sa kanya magbayad. My answer: please read my fll story para maintindihan mo. since you mention na hindi mo pa binabasa.


4. quote= not everyone on GT or kahit san man may so called "word of honor" if you as a buyer don't expect others be like you.
OK pero in her case siya mismo nag mention na matagal na siyang seller and buyer, kundi pala mahalaga sa kanya ang word of honor. how come she stayed in the business for so long? kung wala siyang word of honor. napaka importante ang word of honor hindi lang as a seller and a buyer. kundi sa lahat ng aspeto ng buhay. ikaw hindi ba mahalaga sayo ang word of honor?

quote. I hope she can read my testimony here so she can comment -what do you want to imply? hmm papakita mo na mali siya at tama ka? wala naman siya natakbong pera from you para gumawa ka ng ganito.

bakit hindi mo ki-note ng buo? sabi ko. I have customer's who can validate me as a trusted seller. yun ang punto ko since nag doubt siya sa akin. and I'm not implying na sya ang mali at ako tama. ikaw lang naman ang nagbigay ng sarili mong kahulugan. nag share lang naman ako ng experience ko.



(5) qoute wala nga syang natakbong pera sayo.


wala nga pero nasayang ang oras ko at effort ko na ang main purpose ko lang naman ay magbigay ng good service sa buyer. may word of honor ako na pag sinabi at nag sure at confirmed ang buyer ibig sabihin deal yun. unless nagtext immediately to cancel the transaction para less ang abala. walang big deal sana dahil nainform agad. period.

(qoute-gumawa ka pa ng ganito worst case kung merun gumawa ng separate thread.


If you think that creating a separate or new thread is not a good idea for you. then let the administrator and moderator do their job. they are free to delete my thread. no hard felings. I've already shared my experience. and that's the most important thing. I already learned my lesson. it's ok to rant my experienced as a seller, as long as I'm not posting any personal information or personal dtails. I hope it's clear na po.  :)

I think a seller can avoid aggravation/waste of time/lost alternative buyers if a deadline or payment and confirmation of such is set from the start -- and made very, very clear to a prospective buyer. 

As CALIN22 cited, she wasn't a scammer (kinda harsh to call her that,IMO); but inconsiderate/indecisive  - yes.

Tama..anong bang pinuputok ni butsi mo, e wala namang nakuhang pera sayo? Kung nastress ka sa iisang client nayun, aba e hindi yan ang business na para sayo. Hindi porke kinuha na niya ang bank details mo at di tiniloy ang bayad e, scammer na. Scammer siya kung sinabi niya sayo na nakabayad na siya pero wala namang nakarating sayo. Diba?? Siguro nakakaOFF nga talaga na sabihan mo siya na "lolokohin ka niya" kung talagang wala naman siyang balak lokohin ka.

Hindi ka nascam.. No harm done.. Walang perag nawala.. PEACE!

the buyer has the right to change her mind and sis Elize is right if you cant consider the buyer's right to reconsider then dont sell anything online. Your texts were harsh really. Just because she inquired about the product and payment details that doesnt mean she'll go for it she still has the option to think it over.

Given that she inquired and reserved it and changed her mind or failed to text doesn't mean she's a scammer take her word for it wala siyang mapapala. And that said scammer din pala majority ng nagiinquire sa online sellers including me. ciempre magiinquire ko to know how much and where and if the payment method is convenient sayo. you need to set your expectations properly lol ;)

I honestly think your really immature hehe PEACE!
The blues are because you're getting fat and maybe it's been raining too long, you're just sad that's all. The mean reds are horrible. Suddenly you're afraid and you don't know what you're afraid of. Do you ever get that feeling?

IMHO sis, that's how a "business" work talaga especially through online. First, you cannot force any buyer to buy your item (tama ka don). But customers can also change their minds -- always! Human nature, you think before you buy. Sige sinabi nya na bibilhin nya ang item and she's positive about it, but like I said customer can change their minds same like changing moods. :D

Second, in my opinion in business, you cannot set your "own standard of expectation". The high expectation you have with your customers, may result to higher disappointment also. Sabi mo, may ibang customer na dapat kukuha nung item mo pero YOU decided not to entertain them kase closed deal na kayo (tama lang din naman yon), but thing is YOU expected right away that nothing can possibly go wrong sa transaction mo with this person you committed to. What if hindi natuloy (like sa nangyari)? Diba you felt really disappointed? Eh kung hindi ka nalang nag expect too much and maybe ask your other customers interested with the item if they want to wait for a day or two if mag push-thru transaction mo with the said buyer. Kung hindi eh di you are free to give the item to others. Atleast as a seller, you gave the buyer a chance to change her mind pa and a chance to see if mag push thru yung transaction. This way, you did not expect much and madisappoint lang. :)

What if totoo ngang hindi sya makaalis talaga? For whatever reason pa yan totoo man o hindi, Give her the benefit of the doubt. Maybe you are just too stressed with the idea of her getting the item talaga then you were disappointed after all you've been through (brownout, no charge of cell, prospect customers etc) eh hindi rin pala matutuloy transaction mo. Tama, nakakaloka at nakakainis kase hindi nag meet yung expectations mo. Kaya ganyan ka na lang nainis ng sobra.

In business, buyers come and go... that's reality. At least at the end of this all you gave your best, and you just wanted a smooth transaction. But then again, she is just a customer interested with your item -- no "closed" deal is done if no money is involved yet, in my opinion. :)

Madaming ganyang Customer @amazingheart. kaya you really need to set a certain rules para ma avoid mo ang mga ganyang buyer. minsan may mga nagpapaasa at nag ti-trip lang talaga. kaya para incase na hindi na sya nagtext meaning drop mo na yong transaction. Aquacharly is right! the buyer is not a scammer BUT,  Inconsiderate buyer- it's a big YES. Maybe better if you change the TITLE thread, instead of scammer replace it to Inconsiderate/Indecisive  Buyer. :)

Sa online selling or kahit sa physical store andaming ganyang buyer, kaya patience is always a virtue, kahit gustong gusto mo ng sugurin ang buyer, relax hehe. anyway since you mention naman na your not really into selling. atleast you tried your best. kaya ok lang yan charge to experienced. :)

Yes wala kang magagawa jan customer is always right ika nga kapag may business ka dapat mahaba ang pasensya mo sis... As long as no money was involved hindi mo siya pwedeng tawaging scammer... Yan ang hirap din sa ibang sellers... Hindi minsan tinitingnan ang side ng buyers... Hindi nila minsan kasi alam na may emergencies din na lumilitaw... Tapos bigla nalang nila ilalagay sa bogus buyer album
Nila at iddown ang pagkatao mo... Nasabi ko kasi ito kasi minsan ding may nagtangka sakin na ilalagay ako sa bogus buyer album
Niya at ipapahiya sa iba dahil na sa kanya daw ang info ko... Unang una wala akong balak icancel ang deal namin... Nasa palengke nako nun papunta sa tambunting pawnshop kasi dun lang pinakamalapit na gcash na alam
Ko pusanggala pag tingin ko sa bag wala na yung iphone 3g ko para akong binuhusan ng malamig na tubig...  Nag explain ako sa seller pero pinagbintangan niya ko at binantaan... Kaya ayun kahit na broke nako nun pinatunayan ko pa din na wala akong balak maging bogus kaya binayaran kopa din siya... Tapos sasabihin niya sakin pasenxa na daw mainitin ang ulo niya dahil buntis siya... Pinagbintangan niya along sinungaling at gumagawa lang ng kwento... Pero bilib ako sa mga seller na sobrang mahaba ang pasenxa kasi bilang online seller din ako mahaba din ang pasenxa ko at alam
Ko ang pakiramdam ng pakikipag deal online...

Shes not a scammer wala namang sya nakuhang item/pera sayo sis,  online seller din ako at marami talagang inquire ng inquire tapos hinde naman din pala sure na bibilhin, nag pa -promise  gantong date ,katakot takot na texting, pero no show sa house ko, hinde ako umaasa  maiistress lang ako, at meron naman buyer na nag inquire, nagconfirm na tapos bigla nawala, tapos bumalik ulit...decided na bibilhin na, bigla na lang pumunta sa house ko, may rights ang buyer na magbago isip pa, kase hinde lang ikaw kina- canvas-san nyan sis. Kung talagang gusto item mo babalikan yan, bibilhin yan! hinde pare pareho buyer wag ka masyado aasa dahil naghahanap yan san sya mas makakamura, hinde hassle sa payment, or kung san mas convenient sa kanya.

Online buyer din ako marami akong kina canvas , kung san makakamura dun ako, yung hinde hassle pag kinuha ko item, yung malapit sa place ko .

Para kasing desperate na desperate kang mabenta item mo, chill lang marami pang customer jan ok.wag ka masyadong aasa o maaatat agad:)).kahit sino mawawalan ng gana syo bumili after ng mga palitan nyo ng text ,  Malay mo nagiisip isip pa si buyer , in a day or 2 makapagdecide na sya, kaso the way you acted mawawalan ng gana si buyer, Peace!

I'm an online seller too and true enough madaming ganyan, bago pa lang din ako nagbebenta "online" pero matagal sa mga kakilala.

Don't consider it as a "sure buy" hanggat di ka pa nababayaran. hehe...

Meron din akong ganyan recently hiningi yung details ko and said na she'll get my item. Wala naman dineposit so i gave the item to another buyer. Hindi naman na sya ngparamdam, if ever man i'll tell her na may mas naunang bayad so sorry sya. lol

Binasa ko ang buong post ni TS kasi I was expecting an 'extraordinary' kwento ng experience niya. Nang matapos ko, ang nasabi ko sa sarili ko: "Nyek, yun lang? Naggawa pa talaga siya ng thread para sa napakababaw na pangyayari?"

TS, take it from us... what happened to you is nothing. Inistress mo lang ang sarili mo. Lumalabas talagang desperada ka lang na maibenta yung item mo.

Sa lahat ng negosyo, maliit man o malaki, hanggang di nagkakabayaran (or at least nagkakapirmahan ng kontrata), hindi mo masasabing done deal na yan. Yeah, a lot of things can happen along the way na magreresult ng di pagpush through ng transaction.

Plus you have to live in the real world. At sa real world, hindi lahat ng tao may so-called word of honor. Hindi lahat masipag magtext o considerate.

Tama ang sabi ng mga sis natin dito, newbie ka pa lang sa selling so makaka-encounter ka pa ng sangkatutak na clients na magulong kausap. Someday, tatawanan mo na lang ang post mo na ito.

Btw, kasama talaga sa negosyo ang hassle at inconvenience. You have to live with it.
I shop, therefore I am.

here's what i do when a buyer backs out of a buy transaction:

1) Reply to her: "no problem, thanks for letting me know." and i put a smile pa after... hehe. :)
NOTE to amazingheart: always keep your cool...  and cut your losses whether sa time, load, or whatever.

2) if via ebay, ban her from my listings so that she can't bid anymore in the future.
3) and if nag-tetext na kami, save her number as "beware "name" so that i am warned just in case she wants to transact with me again in the future.

4) FORGET about the whole incident and concentrate on fulfilling orders from other customers. :)

TS, ang haba hehe

harsh nga na tawagin mo un customer na scammer kasi ala naman cya nakuha sayo di ba? nagbago cya ng isip about hte item kaya ganun...di ba tayo din minsan kahit sa tindahan o sa mall, may nagustuhan tayo tapos tatanungin natin kun magkano tapos after ilang sipat eh sasabihin natin, ay wag na lang...

ganun talaga ang pagtitinda ke online or store/shop pa yan...saka malamang naoffend talaga cya sa sinabi mong nanloloko lang cya, kaya ganun di na lang nya kukunin at un nga nagsorry na cya sayo di ba? so let it go na lang

agree ako dito! smiley is always my weapon. kahit iritang-irita na ako while typing my [textspeak!] i make it a point that all my replies are ended with :) habaan ang pisi. madaming makukulit but you will also be rewarded with buyers na sobrang easy to transact with. sometimes pa nga, kung sino pa yung pinaka-makulit sila pa yung repeat buyers mo.

thankful rin ako that online biz will let you learn patience. kung personal transactions malamang bagsak na ko sa umpisa palang :D

weeew! ang haba! hehe. I understand your sentiments TS. nakaka upset din naman nga pag ganyan ang buyer ka inconsiderate. :) todo effort ka tapos deadma naman yong buyer lol!. well ganyan ata pag seller ka. madaming pasaway na buyer.  :D madali lang naman magtext if incase wala ng plan na kunin ang item. I am a buyer din pero I make sure na ma text ko yong seller if hindi ko na itutuloy ang transaction. para parehas kaming wala ng abala. ayoko ding magbayad pag western kasi may charge e hehe. kaya pag nalaman ko na western lang ang mode of payment sasabihin ko agad sa seller na hindi ko na itutuloy atleast naging honest ako. at considerate buyer naman ako ;)

the buyer didn't cause you hassle really.. Ang nag cause sa iyo ng hassle ay ang sitwasyon mo, na nagbrown out at nawalan ka ng contact kasi nga deadbatt, masyado mong na istress ang sarili mo sa pag aalala, kaya nung nagkausap na kayo thru text, sa kanya mo naibunton yung inis mo. Naging offensive yung text mo, you attacked her by saying manloloko.. Ang sikreto ng success online business ay may passion sa pagbebenta, hindi lang kung nakabenta ka o anuman ang dapat mong i consider, kundi pati, kung paano mo itreat ang mga customer mo, chill sis, wag ka sanang mainis sa reply namin..:)

^seller and buyer din ako sa online.. Akala ko nga true na scam hindi pa pala.. Bogus buyer pa pwede..from the start dapat clear na talaga sa seller ang deadline kung cut off ay lunch once na wala confirmation i drop na lang ang deal.. Hindi need magpaka stress... Cool lang.. Madami ganyan kaya from the start may rules na agad ako once na walang confirmation kahit pa naibigay ko account ko hindi ko pa rin expect na closed deal yun until nasa akin na ang payment minsan pagganyan at may ibang interested sinasabi ko na naka reserved if willing magwait ang 2nd buyer till makuha na nun 1st buyer meron din ko ganyan madalas nga ang 2nd buyer ang nakakabili.. Ang 2nd buyer pa nga ang nagsasabi na inform sila if hindi kinuha ng 1st buyer.. Isa pa if gusto mo talaga maging seller dapat marami options for payment kaya nga nag open ako ng gcash,smart padala at bank account dapat girls scout lagi handa.. Lalo nankung 1st time magsearch muna kung ano ba ang trend at ano ba ang pros and cons ng selling ang buying sa online.. Ikaw lang talaga maiinis kung hindi mo expect ang mga downsides ng selling..
