If you haven't checked out the essay i posted above, go through it again. The buyer wasn't rude. The buyer agreed with the final outcome. No haggling or argument took place. The buyer did come across as untrustworthy. But who cares after his end of the bargain was complete. Final outcome was acceptable. So i didn't bother. Now i have two FMs asking me why i didn't do it in the past? The answers are already up there. There's a big difference between business & fraternity. Your loss in a deal is your own problem if you cannot figure things out with basic guidelines in place. A FM PMd me today. I thought it would be wise mentioning in this thread instead of a reply. Looks like i should have cared less.
The mere notion of 'who cares' is what is obviously wrong here. The community cares even if you do not. There is a reason why people come and join. Leaving OLX and FB groups where scams are rampant. Yes there is a big difference between business and fraternity. One goes by a legal contract and other by trust.
But irrespective of what you mentioned in your essays, you do care about the ratings. You gave reference of your market ratings from old TE account and even dug out Erodov link to establish buyers trust in you. And based on that only
the buyer sent you money; trusting
you and without being aware of who you are or having legal business
binding in place.
So why you cared about the ratings there when you feel that they don't matter ?? You could have sent the card without the money in hand !!! And if all went well ( despite hiccups ) then no one would care.
