  • Unfortunately,there isn't anything you can do. Let it go and look for a different couch.

  • I agree with Loving.

    It wasn't sold until cash was in hand. Maybe she had a lot going on and got distracted and didn't get to get back to you until she did. Maybe she had quite a few people say they were coming but no-one did and she finally just sold it to the first person to show up. Who knows?

    I'd just let it go. Good luck!

  • move on... it's gone. i have bought and sold things on craigslist and it can be very frustrating on both ends and communication is sporadic... we've had people bug us for days acting like they're going to buy something and then just never ever show up. now we just sell to whoever comes up with the cash first. of course it would have helped if she gave the address, but who knows what the reason was.
