1) where is the seller/buyer from? In metro Detroit, I would avoid Inkster (this location), Garden City, most zip codes in the 'hoods of Detroit, Highland Park, and a few other select places.
2) depending what you are selling/buying... I would meet in a public place... a gas station, or a fruit market, etc.
3) if it's someone who lives nearby, I get their phone # and call them to verify, and if it is a cheap transaction, I will sell from my front porch... if it's costlier, I use a public place as mentioned above.
4) NEVER let someone enter your house, or you enter theirs.
5) always a cash transaction.
But what if the seller has over 400lbs of bricks (literally a pickup truckload)?
I must say I disagree with the above in some cases. I feel it is more important to make sure the house is in a good neighborhood, have someone with you, and let others know where you are going to be.
I've sold the same guy from 30 miles away... unused concert tickets at a halfway between us gas station location on 3 different occasions for the same guy. And I sold an elderly lady a poster at a fruit market parking lot.
Not everything should be done via Craigslist, and not all scenarios fit the same set of rules. I was just giving some general rules of caution.
Not sure if that's ridiculous or not, but it's going to be one expensive minifigure!
(Not that I really sell anything, anyway.)
Blimey. Who's going to pay that much for a bunch of LEGO they can't even see first?
@SumoLego I think you found a better deal than I did.
Not quite ridiculous but something is a bit off with this. I really want to stick a couple of my Berlins on, cheaper with a few digs as well :)
Good thing he waited till it was retired to resale it.
Not even that your battery is about 10%.
Just that your battery is in one piece, and not part of a mobile hand grenade...
Samsung is wonderful. High quality product and responsive customer service. But, they are sending me a totally useless FitBit thingy, and a memory card that isn'the compatible with my phone...
There's a limit to how awesome you look after paying 7x the going rate and then not being able to fit your minifigure into your display...
There we go...
(Even though most of my stuff remains in a cardboard or plastic coffin.)
Out of curiosity, do you keep your LEGO sealed because you intend to resell it, or just because you prefer to collect it that way?
What is going on here? 1. Why is this 17.50 2. Why does it say private bidder rather than any bidders name?
