include in your advertisement the statement "I retain the option to sell to whomever I choose, on whatever basis I choose, without regard to the order in which I am contacted." It's your item, sir.
Edit: I also recommend that you do a careful review of the buyer's feedback here on FM. Note especially for those individuals who claim hundred's of "Great" feedbacks that you carefully evaluate each of them on the basis of whether the feedback had to do with an item bought or an item sold. If you are selling an item that you consider a "high dollar" item, check to see if the potential buyer has a "Great" feedback record for purchasing "high dollar" items. At least in my view, YMMV, somebody who reports a hundred "Great" feedbacks for having spent $25 bucks on a hundred purchases of low priced items selling for say 25$, I would not regard with the same degree of confidence as I would somebody who bought 10 items at a price value similar to or above what I was selling.
Just my .02$, but if you'd like more data on that, feel free to PM me.
Welcome to FM. LIved in and near Erie 12 years; ran three marathons and numerous other runs on Presque Isle. Great city. I loved the three weeks of summer
take care, tony
Tony's analysis is "right on"! Had 1 scammer last week tell me he would buy my item but no Pay Pal even though I was paying PP fee! He wanted to pay by personal check, I said fine but only afterr the 3-5 day clearance period and funds have been deposited into my bank.
Waited all day for his reply for my mailing address, never heard from him until later that day/night and he now was not sure we needed it.
Found out from other FMers' he pulled the same thing on them.
I require a deposit for any local sale. I will eat the fee just for insurance that what happened to you doesn't happen to me.
I now warn others I see this guy wanting to buy from.
Good luck and just be careful! And save all your PM's/emails..
