Great titles!!!!

(End of Ad.)

So I'm tempted to f*** with this guy, maybe send him an email and say somethin like "wow what a great valuable collection u have there, is it still available?" of course he will say yes, considering no one in their right mind would pay near $600 for it. I will then proceed to make him an offer of $20, and post his reaction here for you all to enjoy. sound like fun?

There's no need to Fuck with these people, man. Posting these here is enough. There's no reason for them not to post their stuff. It may be priced incredibly high, but if they think they can get those prices.. well, power to them. They're just misinformed most of the time. Hell, if they're lucky some other person will actually buy the stuff at those prices.

Also, the only reason that 32X you posted would go for $100 is because it is CIB. If you found a 32X at a flea market that looks as good as the one that guy has, then yeah, you should have grabbed it for $.50 . That guy is at least sensible enough to ask for offers as well, instead of $100 firm.

Yeah, seems like you're just trying to be a dick now.

Real Steel Ninja Sword!!!!!!!!!! - $90 (taylor blvd/shively (louisville)) Date: 2012-05-01, 10:22PM EDT

I have for sale a FULL tang NINJA SWORD (made with real stainless steel). The sword is sharp with a black-out paint finish. It has serrated edges with teeth like points and a nylon cord wrapped handle for a Superior grip. This sword is made with 100% real steel, which means its sharp and does not break or bend. It was made for exactly what swords was made to do. It will be a great gift to show off in your house or a great tool to use if you are an out doors person. Normally real steel swords sell high but I'm selling this for only 90 O.B.O (or best offer). If interested please contact me via txt or call at 5O2 7I5 538I ask for jeremy or feel free to email me.
Thanks.

some dude has been trying to sell his tattooing services out of his home for like 6 months on my craigslist video game section.

People just post whatever wherever, craigslist doesn't give a Fuck.

Has anyone else seen a huge increase in spam ads? like the "$100 gamestop gift card - $50" type bullshit and the "white xbox for $75 neg" ads? I see like, 10-15 of these a day posted all at once. They never get flagged off either. They're scams where they tell you they just sold the item and send you a link to some fake auction or scam site where you can buy your own xbox for $50 or gift card for half price!! WOW

These are what i'm talking about

How am I a dick? This guy just flat out lies in his response to me. He's an obvious scammer, he replied to the xbox collection ad with "I'll throw in UFC undisuputed 2009 for ps3 for free. It's $30 at gamestop used, so this is a great deal." this guy isnt an innocent misinformed guy, it's a scammer and a liar. And people get what they deserve for being lazy and not researching their shit regardless. So i have no sympathy for stupidity

So i sent him a response asking if he would like $21 for his collection, $0.50 a game, and $23 if he throws in UFC. Then sent him links to gamestop's website for the "$30 game at gamestop" (it's $2.99 at gamestop)

EDIT: after sending him that email, he changed his price to $350 instead of $600

There's nowhere else to put this, so I'll just state it here -- I love Half.com!!! I've sold several new and used movies and games for way more than you'd get them new at some stores if you took the time to price shop... but because my overprice is the lowest price on Half.com, people seem to think it's a deal! Never mind they also have to pay for shipping.

To the "If I send you an offer via PM, please respond to it even if you aren't interested" guy, I'm still waiting to hear back from you after I sent you a PM in July of 2009.

The sad thing about this thread is that not only are a lot of the posts stupid, but at least 50% of the people posting here don't realize what things are worth. They see anything that's $60+ and immediately think it's over priced.

If it's a cart only copy it definitely isn't worth $80. If it's manual/box, etc. it's a good/decent price.

Those ads are posted word for word on every craigslist in every major city in the country. It's obviously scams but I don't know how craigslist with even the most minimal of filtering or observing could not stop them from being posted or ban the spambots that generate those ads.

The "xbox for $75 neg" ads that you are probably seeing shitting up your craigslist are the same people too.

I don't think the Craigslist folks monitor posts or use filters. I've barely used the site, so I could be wrong, but I think they rely primarily on reports from other users.

A little on the high side (I believe the honest price for a CIB of FF2 is more in the 50-60 range but I love how people just cherry pick the hell on ebay. I clicked the link and of course it wasn't even a completed listing. Average price? I don't think people know the meaning of average.

I'm familiar with the seller, he bought a cib copy of Super Mario RPG off me (I wanted a copy in better condition) and then puts it back up on sale the next day for more than double what I sold it to him for. I couldn't do that personally, that's too bold for me lol. If I bought something with the intent to flip, I'll just put it up somewhere else.

Someone was also selling a CIB copy of Mario Paint for 40...I'm interested but how do I talk him down from that price? It's only sells for like 15-20.

You can find a few recent sold listings on ebay and Buy It Nows around the price you want and send them his way but he'll probably just ignore you and hope someone else who isn't smart wants to buy it for his asking price.

I'd just say "I want to buy this game in that condition. Either ebay gets my money, or you do. Your choice."

He's just waiting for someone with money to burn and most likely...doesn't care about haggling with you. Can't blame him. His CL ad isn't stupid, it's opportunistic.
