The truth about a certain member....

UPS got you down? eBay making you cry? Need to rant? Do it here.
Since this is the place to rant, I will do so.
I think I have made it very clear in other threads that I could really care less what people do with the prints they buy once they are in their possession.
However, I find it really sh!tty that there are certain members on thegiant, and one in particular that I know other members have had the same experience with, that use forum solidarity to get a print for a deal, only to then sell them on ebay.
I get very tired of the "help a member out", "I hope you don't only care about making money", or "I have been trying to get one, and this would really help me out", pleas, only to see the prints pop up on ebay. This very "needy" member asked me to take down a print from an auction for just this reason, and guess what, after he had it he sold it on ebay, for higher than I had it listed, and much higher than I sold it to him for.
So I know this is not the first time this has happened, and the truth is that this will probably happen 55 or more times in the future. But I just felt I would get out there for myself and other members I have spoken with who have had the same happen to them.

Though I think he's personally a nice guy from some chats I've had with him, I decided to completely refuse to even discuss B/S/T deals with him due to a few instances where I was pretty sure we had a deal only for him to back out very late in the process.

I believe I have been contacted by this same member.

Seemed very interested and eager to purchase something I was selling off the bay. Then when it came time to pony up the money... nothing but excuses...

Sorry if this seems like I'm trolling, but this (he) irritates me too.

Maybe the truth will come out...

the answer is in DJSP's original post, this sentence in particular:

"and the truth is that this will probably happen 55 or more times in the future"

Oh, and I know nothing about him buying cheap to sell back on ebay or anything like that. I just had a few experiences where he bartered with me to get an ultra cheap price on a few items, and when it came time to pay it was like he was MIA. Fool me once, etc etc

Oh snap! Look at all those. And to think he goes by "thetruth" while being deceptive about his intentions for the prints. I wonder what other bs sob stories he's told to board members.

Approx $125 + shipping. Maybe a day or 2 after I shipped it to him.
