so i sold a car seat on craigslist today for 40 bucks...and i come home after i get done with my day out, and check craigslist, and there the car seat is...the people who bought it for 40, brand new, are trying to resell it for 75 dollars, claiming THEY paid 95 for it...BS,..they said they needed it SO bad for their daughter..if they needed it so bad for their freaking daughter, why turn around and sell it?! i'm very upset about it, someone who really needed it could've bought it, instead of someone needing some quick cash...what an ass..sorry, just needed to vent..dh isn't home to for me to talk

  • can you post a comment on there and call them out??? that sucks that maybe someone could have bought it from you who really really needed it. on the other hand, smart of them, they might make some money off it. OR, they will not be able to sell it (haha)

  • That's messed up... But unfortunately, not a whole lot you can do about it at this point.

  • How much did you advertise it for? Did they talk you down. At the time were you willing to sell for $40?
    Let it go. It might be the way they make a living? At least they are working at making money.
    Try to think of it that you got the $40 and if they get $75 than it is a win win situation. I am sure that it will not be as easy to sell for $75 as it was for $40. They will probably have to put in more effort and time. They also have the possiblity of not being able to sell it.
    When I have a garage sale probably half the people that come are going to resell. That is their business and their right. If I want to sell something and am willing to take a low price great for them. If I need to get more for something than I have to say that.
    I hope you understand where I am coming from.
    Be happy with what you got and Let them get what they get.

  • Ok, maybe they were given another one or found a different one they liked better. No, it's not nice for them to lie about the price they paid, but maybe they are quoting new price to have a higher asking price and have more room to negotiate. I purchase things when they are low and resell them through ebay. What if they are selling it to get grocery or diaper money? Since you don't know the reasoning behind the sell, it's better just to let it go.

  • We have free enterprise here in the US. People do it all the time. I don't like the lying about it. However, they can do whatever they wish. It's not a huge deal. Maybe they needed the $$$ and saw an opportunity.
