Yeah rarely do they get back to you. Look, don't do crap to their machines, they spend literally no monies mantian(t)ing them, and they empty some tax free monies in their pockets each week. So you have the strange dichotomy of that versus all the OPs telling us here they make no monies at all.
So I don't know what the hell to think

Gotta get to them whenst they're there, 5 Gs in your pocket and make an offer.

Quoted from hocuslocus:

more then likely they won't know what fair market value is. I'm sure you've seen evidence of this from people trying to sell on craigslist. Your idea of fair market value and his/hers will more then likely be way different.

And that's why it's basically a no win situation. You're hoping to get it cheap with a bunch of hundos in your hand, he's looking it up online and sees it's "worth" 4 times what you're asking, no meeting of the minds. If it does happen you get an overpriced game probably in poor shape...which you could have done without the leg work.
