I need to buy some. Can you please point towards where I can get them cheap.

The prices have fallen a lot on Amazon, but venus v4400 there. Pm me if you have any confusion

Stay away from fake sellers

Wow didn't realize this thread was still active! Though I'm not sure how it went from lowballing discussions to N95 face mask prices :blink:

 

Anyway, I've since moved to Texas after creating this thread a while ago. There are some lowballers here too on Craigslist and Facebook Marketplace but nowhere near as bad as OLX. Most people are very decent and barely ask for 10% off. It's very refreshing :D 

 

So when I get lowballed these days I just say "No" or don't bother replying. Don't want to risk pissing off someone with a smartass reply and have them show up at my door with a gun or something :bandit:

 

I'm not even kidding. Last week I sold N64 controllers to some dude and he showed up with a handgun stuffed in his back pocket :O. Luckily he just paid cash and thanked me and left.

One of the reasons I never buy/sell anything off craigslist and Facebook marketplace. Had a scary experience few years back. Someone listed Mario Kart 8 for switch a week before release date and I got tempted and drove 30 minutes to buy it. Everything went smooth but I noticed the seller was in his late teens or early twenties and after taking my cash, called someone. His friends drove from across the street, rolled the windows and gave me my copy.

 

I went home, played the game for a day. The next day, I saw a tweet from local PD about a stolen shipment of Mario Kart 8s and that the culprits were caught. Went to the cops and mentioned about me buying a copy off someone in Offerup(more secure as it has members verified by their drivers license or social). They asked me to show the listing and after seeing it told me I bought it off the the guy that stole a shipment from Gamestop. I told them they can take the copy off me but they let me go after asking to be cautious when buying things off internet. They were surprised that I went to them to handover my copy of the game but appreciated being honest :lol:

:( This is sad more than anything. Lots of people buy pets thinking they are like toys and then want to get rid of them when they realize the cost and effort that goes into taking care of a pet. 

 

Know a person who got presented with a puppy. Said person was not a dog person, and the dog spent 3 months in a paid kennel before it got adopted.

On call :

 

Lowballer 1 (me : sees PS4 games lot listed at 800) - price of witcher 3 goty.

 

Lowballer 2 : 1800 rs

 

Lb1 : oh I thought it was around 800 per game which you had listed

and is it new or what ! I am looking for used only.

 

 

Lb2 : it is new like (lol),

I didn't even play it, you can exchange with your PS4 games, I will reduce price.

 

 

Lb1 : no, I don't want new at all, I want used only. And I don't have any PS4 games, only PS3.

 

Lb2 : it is goty edition with all DLC.

 

Lb1 : doesn't matter, dlcs are on disc.

 

Lb2 : ok, I can take PS3 games plus cash (apparently lots), will reduce price (not much at all).

 

 

 

Lb1 :oh, let's directly exchange PS3 games.

 

 

 

Lb2 : arrey, Mai to PS3 games le bi Raha hu aapse, Varna mere paas 100 games pade hai, 100-150 max hai Inka rate, fir bi koi nahi leta hai.

 

 

Lb1 : achaa, witcher 3 chodo, yeh Sab PS3 games jo hai 100-150 RS wale inki list bhejo, Mai le lunga.

 

Lb2 : shifted topic to witcher 3 only and

then after being declined didn't send the list for PS3 games of "100-150rs" and gave absolutely ridiculous offers for swap.

 

 

Done.

(Actually I got lowballed)
