Is all this bickering about a $200 watch? Roll the dice.

That would be a terrible way to do business.
The buyer has complied to the OP's requests, why should he cancel the sale?

Just roll the dice at this point.

Because if you feel it’s shady, with payment by someone else’s PayPal and it taking a few days to clear, that gives the seller pause. You can cancel a sale at any time an as long as he refunded the payment, no harm.

It’s a $600 watch. And I asked him to do the deal a certain way, he did.

So unless something unforeseen happens, I’m shipping the watch.

And our guy, Hop, never took any of the advice from us. Our advice was, collectively, to walk away.

But he didn’t.

But that doesn’t mean that what our guy did require - which the kid has done - was done in bad faith by the kid.

The theme around here is the sky is falling, yet everything our guy asked for has been done.

Can the kid fuck him? Sure. But right now the kid is out everything. Is it a shady deal and probably shouldn’t have been done? Likely, as indicated, but our guy ignored all of that.

Our guy took the field. So now, with both money and watch in hand, our guy is the one with the power and still holds the watch.

So I go back to where I started: ship the watch, the kid did everything this shitshow cluster of a deal required.

Do I think this will end well? Not in the least, I give it about a 10% validity and that’s just because I happen to love Korean BBQ. But right now, all things being equal, our guy is the shady one.

Demands have been met, play the game.


Utah get me two!
Totally siding with Graham on this one.

The kid did everything you asked.

You have the money and watch.

Chicago has lots of Koreans. Too many. So at least we know there is a good chance this person from Chicago is Korean, lol.

Here is what I would do before you seal the box for shipping(if you are still worried).

-Go to post office.
-Place open shipping box with watch box inside(show watch in photo) on the kiosk scale and take photo. Use a smart phone so the photos will be date stamped.
-Take photo showing actual weight of entire package.
-Take photo of shipping address on monitor.
-Seal package and adhere paid shipping label.
-Place package on kiosk scale and take photo again to show paid shipping label and exact same weight as before package was sealed.
-Give to postal clerk.
-Pray and have a glass of Sangria.

I have a good feeling this transaction will go smoothly.
It's a beautiful world! Gerald.

Good call, Mark;I would send the watch. I don’t do PayPal and have asked “PayPal friends”to cover me several times - this evening, as a matter of fact...

I’m a pretty trusting fellow, though (I have a strong penchant for revenge if slighted, nonetheless). The kid paid F&F to someone he never met. I did that a few times back in the day and everything worked out ok :shrug:

I haven't updated my LinkedIn in years, perhaps I should do that.

This is like watching a train crash in super slo-mo.
The winner does or does not get $200.

Fucking hell. :banghead:

$600

It’s just reading. Like just reading the posts and remembering stuff. Not a difficult skill.

I owe you an apology, I didn't read the thread properly, and regardless, my last post was genuinely out of order (I was a little bit drunk)
After a few beers I can easily mistake 'being a dick' with 'hey I'm funny', so please accept my apologises :cheers:
