    I had the opposite experience with someone from pinside. Just purchased a w?d and in 1 business day was palleted ready for shipping. That being said I would bet that's far from normal. I am very straight forward and honest and all you can hope for is the same on the other side. Unfortunately my faith in a persons word has been shaken over the years due to business. So I don't get my hopes up until cash has changed hands

    Quoted from ThePostmaster:

    JDub1006 said:It sucks when this happens but it is business not personal.
    This is where I must disagree. When you make a deal, it becomes personal. It is bad business to change the deal, or break it for that matter, after an agreement has been reached by both parties.
    To me, it's like buying a car. You go in, choose it, agree on a price, and go to secure financing. When you get approved, the dealer changes the price, because the dealer across the street is selling the same car for more money.
    Just my opinion.

    +1. Bait and switch is B.S. same holds true for the buyer. I purchased a ToM from a well respected vendor (who was also at Allentown). A few days after giving my deposit I saw a machine in equal condition for 200 less. Rather than haggle over the 200, I committed to paying the agreed upon price. Best decision. Vendor drove it to my house personally, brought it down a flight of stairs and set it up including showing me how to maintain it top to bottom. If you are a proper business person just stand by your word.

    Quoted from Monster_Bash:

    I guess it depend who you are. Although I scrape every extra nickel to buy a pin...there's no way I would go back on my word for more cash...on a sale
    Case in point I offered up a pin for sale an put it pretty much everywhere. Well MrPinball must have had some issues because the add didn't post for 4-5 days. I made a deal with a pinsider for the sale of the game. Before the game was picked up or shipped, I had a full asking price offer ($250 more than I sold it for) from a relatively local guy that saw the add on MrPinball. Of course that would have also saved me packaging and palletting...leaving work to meet the shipping company...etc. There's no $ amount you can put on your word... or a 'handshake.'
    On a side note I've never made a deal to buy a pin (CL included..and I've 'stolen' a few from CL) and got backed out on from the seller.
    Maybe it's karma at work...

    And i appreciate that word to no end When you work with Honest people that relationship is worth more than a few extra bucks in my opinion.

    I love people like this who think they own the board.

    Please lock this thread. We don't need this kind of Drama and Bitching. JHanley and DonJagra please take it offline.
    Respectfully,

    Hardly think I own anything. Just a request nothing more. It's fine when you have spirited debates but when 2 people start calling each other asshole and various other things nothing good can come of that
