    Quoted from mamemaster:

    He did. We worked on delivery options - then silence. After I followed up I got the "I had multiple over asking offers"

    If he agreed, and did it after like you say, call him out as a scumbag, because he’s a scumbag. It’s fairly straightforward. Home trying to get more after he said yes is a douche move.

    The poll question is difficult to answer, because it depends entirely on the particular situation.
    There would be situations where I'd pony up some extra cash if I felt like I was still getting a good deal.
    If the seller suddenly wants significantly more, or turns the deal into a bidding war, then I'd walk away.

    Quoted from mamemaster:

    Update - a connection of mine who knows both of us jumped in and smoothed things out after I told the seller I was going to move on. It was really nice (and unexpected!) of him to do that....I trust this particular contact of mine and he's been a good guy to buy from in the past.
    I would be happy if this works out.....if it weren't for my contact I would have not even considered moving on this....

    I dont care if your mom was the mutual friend. He pulled a scumbag move and I would have said no thanks. I can appreciate the 500 bucks your saving but, you said you can buy it new. It's not a piece that's only comes along once a year and you need to jump on it. I'm a pretty easy guy to get along with but when someone jerks me around it becomes an instant black ball on all future deals.

    Quoted from mamemaster:

    Yeah. I have a local vendor who I can buy it from tomorrow for $500 more delivered - I was hoping to save that $500.....but that may be the best outcome (if I buy it at all right now lol)

    Spolier alert:

    The original seller is also the vendor.
