Your question about negotiating on the phone. If you agree with them on a price, then all they have to do is change or ad a buy it now to the negotiated price. I have done this in selling and buying.
Recently I have had two fake sellers try to scam me - they had the nice photos, all the specs for the motorhome etc., it was a good deal too - I started emailing, we exchanged phone numbers (theirs was obviously an unregistered cel phone) and they wanted me to wire money to secure the deal - I smelled a rat, they were both scams. I reported them to the Internet Fraud Complaint Center.. Internet Crime Complaint Center (IC3) | Home
