Never go out to buy anything that costs more than $40 or so without backup. Also, if you see someone trying to sell something that's worth a LOT for FUCKING NOTHING, it's either a sting, stolen, or you're about to get robbed and/or killed (then robbed).

Always meet in a well-lit, public, and heavily traveled place (like McDonalds or WalMart) in broad daylight.

If you can, always be armed, too. Better to have and not need.

I was actually thinking of doing something like this (500 for example). But I figured that price spike would raise question and make her do research.
As a collector I would love to have them in my collection, even if she had was worth a million dollars I wouldn't sell it, it would make me wanna keep it that much more.

What you tried doing was no different than a scumbag store marking Mario/Duck Hunt as rare and charging idiots $30 for a copy.

>> No.1880585

It is a tough call. While the woman would be making less than she could elsewhere, that is what she asked for them (though this whole thing reeks of BS). Since we are judging value on what she can get for them and ebay is where she could get the most, wouldn't asking anything below ebay Sold Items average value minus fees and some small amount for convenience be ripping her off, albeit to a lesser degree? It wasn't like he lied and tried to convince her that what she had was junk. People who try to haggle a $100 game that they find for sale for $20 down to $10 are the real scammers.

Once some leisure good goes out of print, the only real value is how much the seller can get from the buyers they are willing to find. If that was all the effort she would put into finding a buyer and she was happy with $1 a piece, then the buyer did nothing wrong. Would it have been nice to inform her? Yes, but in the end more educated sellers just leads to the perpetualization of reseller scum prices.

The moment you say something like "they're worth more than that" it immediately prompts the seller to back off and find out exactly how much more. It was a dead deal either way, OP just got unlucky.

Not necessarily.

Most time I do it, they're happy I let them know and take the offer. Granted I'd never do that unless its in person. If the deal is going down in person, I'd never negotiate through email/text/phone/etc.

OPs first mistake was talking about prices until they met. Once they drug everything out and met, they'd be less likely to leave without making the deal.

>> No.1880960

>>1880831
Also, I use something like "worth more than that to ME". That way you're only implying you put more value on it, not that it has some intrinsic value that makes it with more to everyone.

I've actually had people not care about something being worth more and be like "meh, I had it for $4 so that's what I'm selling it for" and not take more money.

I like those people, not because they're dumb, but because they have the integrity to stick by the original deal. Like when you're at a yard sale getting ready to buy something and some dick nozzle butts in and tries to offer more to the person running the sale, but the seller doesn't bite.

OP here, somehow you guys made me feel better, didn't expect that shit from 4chan.
Also I was reading between the lines of our emails and it looks like her husband didn't even know what price we agreed on, she was just setting it up more the less, bet you anything if we met up and she placed all 60 neo geo games in front of me and said $60 her husband would have shut that shit down.

She actually messaged me today guys. Explaining how she was sorry and how her husband has the final say because they're his games after all. Anyway, long story short, either she or him is going to "do a little bit more research" and give me a "fair" price sometime later today (hopefully). My question is, how much is too much? Obviously if they were still $1 a game I wouldn't be asking this question. But seeing how that's no longer an option, what do you think is too much for neo geo games on CL?

Serious jewfag collector here. I was 100% sure you were being trolled until I saw these pics. It's amazing that there are troves like this out there. Here are some tips.

Say that you weren't sure or not if this was legit and you wanted to see everything in person, inspect the merchandise for condition and even authenticity before you even were seriously discussing price.

Once you've seen it in person, while not having your whole budget on you, try to get them to set a price for the entire lot. People will often be ashamed to ask for a thousand dollars or more for something they only recently thought was relatively worthless

Gauge the way they phrase their price for how negotiable they are. This is one of many reasons to negotiate in person, to read their cues. Also, when and if they set the price too low you can snap them up right that second, but don't seem too eager because that will set off THEIR jew-sense.

In general, never seem too eager. I certainly hope you weren't the one who suggested the $1 price point but even if it was her, your response should have been more alomg the lines of "Yeah that seems reasonable but I'd like to take a look at them in person if that's okay" and got an address and showed up.

>> No.1888768

>>1888747
good stuff.
However she will be telling me the new price via e mail.
The wife is super motivated to sell, she contacted me and gave me the $1 price. As far as being eager I think I played it smooth. I did come off disappointed that she was no longer selling them, but always ended with something like "i would have loved to add these to my collection" Never hinting at selling them (mainly because I don't play on selling them but you see what I'm doing.)

Don't be disappointed because that makes it seem like you're giving up. Just always have a positive attitude and constantly move toward going in person, without seeming suspicious or threatening or anything. Also, don't respond to email prices just keep repeating that you need to see them in person since it might be a scam or worse and the sooner you can eliminate that possibility, the better for all involved. Make sure to bring a ton of cash with you but leave 90% of it hidden in your car.

Spent around $200 for $500 worth of games and only got $120 back selling them as fakes. I'm warning you, it's not safe to throw down cash and leave. You'll have to look at PCB scans and compare.

If I were you, I'd bring a $100 bill and see if she'll take that. If she mentions eBay, say that they take 15% in fees and that she will have to ship them all and you can just pay her now. I would only go up to $200 if she wouldn't absolutely budge at all. Increase to $150 and say that's your budget for games or something and that you'd "love to have them" and that you'll have a lot of fun playing them even though you're a slimy shit and are going to sell them for hundreds more.

Well she wanted 100 a game after her husband shot down our prior agreement.
I didn't accept, but invested told her I wanted to meet, we did. Her husband wasn't with her but she called him like 3 times. Anyway he finally caved when I told him I had $500 in cash. I started at 200 or something, don't remember, he declined so I suggested 250, also declined, I offered 350 final offer and he declined. So my friend I was with shut down the deal, before we completely shut it down I ask how much did he want for the whole package, she didn't get an answer. I said I only came with 500 (which was a lie) and said I was able to do 500 because she had the system and controllers. That's when they finally caved. Not a great story but ehhh. 90% of everything is in like 9/10 condition, all have manuals besides 2, 1 of which is a conversion.

one time when i was younger i was selling a game on a local place sort of like ebay or craigslist but much smaller and we agreed on a price she came in and tested it for like half an hour playing with her daughter. everything was perfect condition but then she told me she would only buy it for 20 less then what i was selling

Yeah as you learned, negotiating through email is worthless. Also, you did good not reacting to her "I want $6000" bullshit. I'm sure she was ashamed to say a figure like that to your face, no matter how reasonable it might have been. Also, that stack of twenties waving under her nose was too much for her to walk away from. I'm guessing you actually had nearly double that you might have been willing to part with but it sounds like your inner negotiator kicked in and broke her. Amazing work.

...maybe, if you had really pushed hard to have met in person but managed to do it without seeming eager. But you still only dropped the kind of money that usually gets someone a console and a couple games but you got thousands and thousands of dollars worth of additional games so there's no sense playing what-if.

I mean, ebay is amazing from a convenience perspective, but that kind of convenience tends to just wreck prices. People can search online for 'rare' games instead of having to actually exert effort.
