what is this board's position on Sellers who back out of a deal? Here is a final IM i received today (3/26) from a seller with whom i'd agreed to a FTF purchase a rifle in Dallas back on 3/23 & confirmed on 3/24:
"I am selling my rifle to a local I work with. I apoligize, but I've had 13 people commit to buying the Colt with all of them backing out. I have not heard from you nor did you leave a call back number so I was not sure if you were indeed going to take it. Again I apoligize if you were but I could not take a chance. This is the worst site of folks welching"
The reality is that i'd told the seller i would take it (on 3/23) and i further told him (on 3/24) that i'd meet him the day i returned from Alabama (on 3/26) I called him immediately when i landed and hit the bank for the funds...no answer. By the time i got home i received the IM above. Due to weather in the Southeast US this week I didnt have internet access afterwards at my hotel to follow up further (which wasnt reqested beyond what i'd already done anyway).
Your help would be appreciated,
