So I was looking at this car on ebay:
There's only 2 pictures on the listing, so I asked the seller if he could e-mail me some pictures of the interior.
email u pictures? u email me the money and i will email any pictures,
So I asked him for a phone number and said I was living on Frome St and wanted to view the car ASAP.
iam staying in london near the road thsts near london ,thats next door to
frome which is next door to london which leads to frome and returns to
Just didn't know what to do with this. So I figured maybe it's because of my "uk" account. So I emailed him to say I arrived a week ago - was staying in the city - and just wanted to view his car.
Then I checked his listing again, and he'd added this:
for those international pelicans who play scam games..give up """" testa di cartso""""
I mean, come on! I checked and "testa di cazzo" (if he'd spelled it right) means "d*ckhead".
Ok, this might not be an Aussie - and God knows I'm myself wary of international scammers on ebay, but still - I little bit unfair I think???
I've since changed my account to show I'm in Oz - even changed my ID.
Been here just over a week now, and the whole family have been absolutely bowled over by how friendly the Aussies are - they go out of their way to make you feel welcome. Maybe I just ran in to a rum 'un??
Anyhoot - just don't like being called a d*ckhead - just for asking to view a car for sale............ That's the internet I guess !! !! !!
I sent one last email saying I wasn't a scammer - just hadn't changed my account details since arriving - so far nothing.
I don't like mis-understandings.
Rant over !! !! !!
Anyone selling a cheap little 4x4 ??
