I was looking to buy some Nike Air trainers and messaged the guy for some more photos because there's fakes about and I know what to look for to make sure they're genuine. He'd posted one photo of both shoes sitting on the box from quite far away. These were the messages between us:
"Hi, I’m thinking of buying these. Can you please post some more close up photos of the tongue patch, side logo, back logo/plate and the sole. Cheers,"
"Hi, sorry what you see is what you get, you can zoom in on the picture, I don't get requests for more pictures to be fair, there has been no complaints from any of my customers, if you are in doubt or unsure whether to purchase my items you have the choice not to as I do not expect returns, once you have paid the item is yours so it's entirely up to you."
"Well that’s a rather strange and hostile reply. I’m obviously asking for some more photos because I can’t see exactly what I’m getting. There’s a lot of fakes about. I can tell if they’re genuine by the parts of the trainers I mentioned. If you can’t be bothered to post a couple more photos for me then you’re not a very good seller and you won’t be getting any business from me. And by the way, anyone can return your items within 14 days for any reason they like"
I just don't understand the mentality. What a dick!!!

Snaketibe wrote:What an idiot! Not only has he lost a perfectly good sale (if the trainers are indeed genuine), he also apparently cares not at all about his reputation. I hope you reveal his seller ID so we can all avoid buying from him; he certainly deserves to lose a lot of customers!
Out of interest, what is his feedback like? With that stinking attitude, it should be piss-poor!
