every buyer should run a history check on the hat to see if it is duped as they can save a great deal of money
first of all its the buyers responsibility to check if its duped or not, and second i let people know if its a dupe, when i trade it, i value it a bit less, but i dont knock off huge value, i still think an unusual is an unusual, but some prefer to sell it at full price or not say its dupe, i think the honest route is a good way,
thats my 2 cents as a trusted seller, not active for the moment, but when i was trading unusuals thats how i did business :P
So I'm gonna attempt real hard not to come across as an asshole since I pretty much am one, so here goes.
48 hours passed. Was plenty of time to get your shit in order.
Yup it was duped, and yup thats 100% the other traders responsibility in my opinion. Viper knew it was duped and even asked me to knock my b/o down a bills, which I did.
I personally don't give a shit if stuff is duped, its just something other traders use as a tactic to bring down the value of an unusual.
My history speaks for itself, check my rep, my profile for those that arent aware. I'm a good little trader. In all honesty as long as I'm not a shark, or scammer I can honestly full heartedly care less if I'm "respected".
Appreciate the comments left by reaps, and the other dude telling this guy to grow a pair, because honestly I thought the exact same thing.
Anyway . . . um yea.
Angrypug got greedy and took another offer, whilst telling you he would hold it for you. Simple as that. It's really sad that you broke your promise to another trader and are now telling him to 'grow a pair', angrypug.
I held a burning tyrolean for, iirc, more than a month for someone because they really wanted to buy it off me and was desperately trying to trade their hats for promos.
I held 4 buds for a German trader with no rep for 4 days whilst he transferred money from his bank to paypal.
When I'm trading unusuals that's how I do business.
Its he said she said, It passed 48 hours I'll leave it at that.
when i say that i'll hold items, i'll give them a bit of a buffer. if possible, i'll warn the buyer that i'm selling it elsewhere when the time expires.
then again i don't hold items so...
I've had people hold hats for me for various amount of time while I either converted cash to buds or converted 40 hours a week into cash. Hell, Longfellow has been holding something for me for weeks now while I did some of that time-to-money conversion. It's good business (good way to get loyal customers and customers that point their friends to you first), the right attitude to have in an environment free of jerks (similar to my suggestion in the Shark Tag poll) and generally just the right thing to do.
