Default People selling used tracks PLEASE READ

First off I'm not going to bash anyone I recently had a bad experience and the seller has been contacted with no further action so I'm here today to give my opinion on the matter.

#1 be Honest don't claim your stuff is in great shape BUT never look it over to confirm its true.
#2 if a conflict has happened try to resolve it don't sit there and talk your way around it and at the end pretty much blame the buyer because it is a used track you purchased, but never actually took the time to look over the track before selling it.

Now i feel as a seller i have 2 used tracks for sale in great shape has no chance of selling unless i give them away because people have been burned so many times this way.
Snowmobiling is a big part of my life but very expensive so when stupid shit like this happens it upset me that people are like this the word gets out to friends and family so don't ever think you got away with one.
I just want to say thanks to everyone that are true to there word it seems to be rare these days.

I think that advice should be taken for any item you're selling.

^^^No doubt but I've never been burned so many times on something before it's a joke, Ebay especially but never thought on hear though. This will be the last used track I will ever buy unless from a good friend that I trust.

I'm sorry I just can't trust people that much. I would never buy a wearable item without putting my hands on it first. One persons opinion about condition may be totally different than yours or they could be a schmuck trying to rip you off either way you end up screwed. I wish I could trust people.

I'm the same always want to see it before buying used BUT the word in great shape gets abused way to much between a seller VS buyer I've been down this road with other items purchased used and some are great people about it they will make it right and apologize for the mistake but there's always some that sit there make accuses for there junk they just peddled off and it's your fault for buying it. Well karma is a bitch.

It's not a hard concept I sell used stuff and I never use vague terms like good shape, more like; used half life or almost new very little ware or battle tested but still working. But then I'm never looking to make much money just figure someone could use it and I could get a couple bucks instead tossing it

I hate scammers!!

I have sold several items over Kijiji, and always make sure that there is a full description, pictures and a story (if one is applicable).

Case in point, I sold something on Kijiji earlier this year that wasn't 100% and I knew it.

I explained what the problem was in my ad, and it reflected as such in the selling price.

When I met with the buyer I made sure to explain it again, and showed him what I was talking about before the cash exchanged hands.

He thanked me for being honest, took the goods and off he went.

About a week went past and I got a call from the buyer thanking me for the sale, and that the item was actually better than he thought it would have been.

I figure karma is a bitch, and I don't want to be on the receiving end of it.

If you bought your item through E-Bay, can't you contact them for assistance?

Also since we are giving out warnings (and I'm sure most of you know this already), never accept PayPal on a Kijiji transaction.

They send someone else to pick up the goods with a name that doesn't match the PayPal account, then a few days later the owner of the said account contacts PayPal and says that the transaction wasn't real, and that they want you to provide proof of signature.

So you are out the cash and your items.

These people are crooks and need to be hung!

Sad deal. I have bought many items from you and have always been informed above and beyond of the condition and to have this happen to you sucks with the effort you've put forth as a seller.
