    Hypothetical: how should you feel about this transaction

    Say a seller had a thread

    “Bose qc35 for $250 btc”
    You look and the thread was bumped one hour ago by the thread owner

    Question 1: would you assume this is the current price because they thread owner just bumped the thread with this price 1 hour ago?

    Continue.. so you go to a btc exchange and pay $275 for $250.
    You then IM the thread starter and they say “I want $300 now”. You reply “ the thread says $250” then he just said “I forgot to update it when I bumped it an hour ago”

    So now you’re stuck with $250 btc that you paid $275 only to purchase the Bose from him. How do you feel about this situation?

    A) scammed, it’s a classic bait and switch scam. Car dealers been doing this since 1940
    B) it’s not a “scam” but I’d FEEL scammed, it’s definitely grimy though
    C) it’s not dirty at all, people forget things just because you lost money doesn’t mean he can’t forget
    D) I don’t know

    And if you were the seller you’d

    A) honor the price of $250 since you forgot
    B) still charge $300 but point him to a free exchange
    C) charge $300 still and he’s on his own to find the extra btc?

    Btw, this is totally hypothetical and made up and nothing like this happened

    Thank you

    I would read first before sending anything.
    I don't assume anything I ask.
    I would confirm it 2 times.

    I think you read this incorrectly. The ad said $250. I didn’t read twice, I read 6x and it still said $250
    Assume what may I ask? There was no assuming, the ad said $250. I didn’t assume $250, the ad said $250.
    On confirming 2x, I understand that. As someone with a voice maybe you could make a suggestion to add a tos. “Ads prices are just for play” or something similar.

    Now for the second part because you sell. If I go to your thread right now and you quote “x for x price” how much do you put your name behind that. PERSONALLY. Not anyone else, you. Do you make it a priority to reflect your current prices on YOUR business or is it whatever, “I change it when I feel like it”

    i don't trust what I see from an AD since they are made to get attention.

    let give you an example of what is AD

    I use myself as it looks at my thread can see most of the stuff i have has the price tag on them
    look at the title and read the thread it states from 1month to 3 year
    so people add me and ask me for it some assume the price tag of 1$ is for a 3-year account or all of the accounts.
    wrong
    its starting price can range up to anything.

    so AD tag of 1$ will make the customer add you
    you send them a list of full-price there some want higher some don't
    some dont even read it .

    so before sending my wallet if they say a warranty i again send price of total for them
    thats the one i sell for .

    tho still problems come

    i used to send this

    Send Friends and Family or someone you Trust . if you dont have it ask me for a different PayPal.

    Send Via Goods and Service or Items Make sure to pick no address needed at the end and no note please

    i got payment with notes
    no one asked for different PayPal they still send goods
    some even copy past this in note
    Make sure to pick no address needed at the end and no note please

    so i reached to the point i just send them this

    Send USD , no note

    still i get non usd and note

    pepole then to be lazy and not reading stuff they seen

    i gave up.

    you see that's where you are wrong

    you can see lets say a iPhone ad

    iPhone X 399$

    yeah, normal one is they are not gonna give an iPhone X pro max super etc for that its ad to get customers in.

    well don't think it too hard
    life is to short to worth it.

    i ask the seller the price of what I want to buy right now and will ask again before sending anything.

    Not scammed, not really that grimey either. I think we forget that MPGH sellers arent a big company that have to honor printed advertisements nor provide over the top customer service. Seller didnt fail to deliver a product and the BTC can be used for many other things.

    Or you can find someone else who offers the same service for a cheaper price and the other seller will lose out on what they were offering.

    people are constantly updating pricing in comments, thread design changes take longer, most you could really do is report the persons post to have title updated to most recent price posted by OP

    Always be aware of impostors, ask for verification by having the person send you a message on MPGH.
    Please do not waste my time & your time with useless messages. These will be ignored and actions will be taken.

    Make sure to read the MPGH Rules & each Section STICKY for extra information and rules that apply for that
    specific section.
    *Please confirm my Identity before any transaction* If you have any questions, please feel
    free to contact me using the links Below.Please make sure to SEARCH your question using the following link first
