Hey folks, sorry if this belongs to any of you but thought I'd share it for a bit of a laugh regardless.
So this guy is selling what he calls "B-17 & P-51 Model Combo" www.trademe.co.nz/Browse/Listing.aspx?id=1437005530
When someone questions the contents he's told to bugger off, when I looked closer there's not even enough bits for a single model let alone a "combo" lol
I had to question this especially as he's saying he's painted it but he's not sure if it's all there as it's part of an estate sale.
So yeah he then tells me to "bugger off to" which isn't really a good image for potential customers.
This on first impression looks good.


But on closer inspection, it seems somewhat lacking lol

I'm still being abused for highlighting the error in the description, in reality I should just report the auction for misleading title, there is no combo.

Ha, that's pretty dodgy. Good on you for calling him out.

Regarding trademe, I doubt I'll sell anything on there again after my last experiences.

Yeah it's a pretty robust conversation, a bit one sided. I'm trying input some logic and he's just throwing his toys out now.

I doubt he can remove the auction now it has a bid on it and all for a couple of dollars he needs to focus the estate sales that are actually worth something.

:P

Looks like it closed without selling. What a dick. Good on you, Gary; his behaviour is terrible.

The comment he made against the neutral feedback he received was just as bad!
