Price reduced. $70 shipped to you.
I thought I should share with other pentaxforums members. SRT-202 didn't provide any reference outside ebay, and he asked me to send a check for $70 despite the fact that last night his message above said "Price reduced $60". If the payment is not through Paypal or Google Checkout etc, then the buyer has no safety (I provided my ebay reference as well as heatware feedback, ebay rating doesn't matter if you're not dealing through ebay).

When I remind him about the $60 price, he asks me for $65 and when I provide him with a USPS link that showed $4.60 + 2.05 insurance with Priority Mail, this is what I get in reply:

I don't need this s**t for $60.
Well you can't say that about $60 after you give me s*** for $10 on top of your asking price, and then again for $5!

WAGAS wanted "special" service. He wanted me to ship the lens to him before he paid for it because he wanted it to use this weeked.

I said "Sure. Just send me a check." I honestly didn't care if he sent it today or next Monday. He apparently didn't understand "sure" as meaning yes.

So he sends another e-mail asking if I'll REALLY ship it today (with his address and some references). I respond yes, send me a check while I ship it to you. Since I'm providing EXTRA service by shipping without cash up front and by priority mail (better than my offer originally provided), I ask for $60 plus $10 shipping.

He replys that he won't send a check unless I provide "references" (remember I'm offering to ship the lens without prior payment). So I send him my Ebay user name and tell him to check my feedback. I even offer to do it for $65.

He comes back with some long drivel about Ebay. We are now at 7 e-mails over a $65 transaction. Remember that I have no safety at all because he can keep the goods and never send the check. I decide that I'm through "screwing" with Wagas Usman, so I tell him the deal is off.

Although he NEVER said so, apparently Wgas doesn't want to buy from anyone who doesn't offer PayPal or Google Checkout. If he'd said that up front, I'd have told him "no deal" at the start.
