When you purchase something from someone on SMC and WN. I got bit today! I was the first person to respond to the add for a new Dewalt 735 planer. Guy says great, send me the money and I will ship it. Then the next day calls me back and says another person just offered $25 more and he would sell it to me fo $25 more, so like a dumb a** I agree, then we get the payment and shipping arangements set up , I sent off the money order today and he calls me after I post the money today and says that he just sold it to another buyer for $25 more than I was going to pay….......NOT COOL! I was the origional buyer,,,,,,WTF! Can’t believe the nerve of some scumbags. I hope the F’er goes out of buisness!! Now I have to go to the bank tomorrow and canx the money order.

Sorry, but had to get that off my chest but I hate getting treated like that.

How is anyone supposed to know that?

You would if you belonged to those forums. I rarely visit WN because it has a lot of “low class” members and it is pretty much a “no holds barred’ forum, but I am on SMC all the time. I may be wrong, but I suspect WN was formed by people that got banned from other forums.
