I don't care about whether you sell the case and for how much, but I'm curious: if you're so strapped for cash, why did you spend over $300 on a briefcase in the first place?

So it went up $300 more!?!?!?! You said at the price you paid you'd be breaking even if you sold it at $600 right?

I'm not commenting on ethics, hell, no one would sell if it weren't for profit. I just want to understand what kinds of hidden charges are incurred that add up to $300.

After Paypal and ebay fees it evens out.

You do realize that 15% of $300 is $45.

I never said that I paid 300. I paid 301. New calculation please.

Dude, I could shit in Hermès birkins and be the world's biggest douchebag and that wouldn't really make your actions any less lame, it would merely mean I'm worse than you.

So we must calcualte the fees based on the selling price of $600. 15% = $90. PP fees 3%= $30, and you're charging $30 for shipping which means its $10 over. so: $600 - $90 -$30 + $10= $490, and you purchased the bag for $3XX. Would you be breaking even? Look I think profit is great, and sometimes, a resell ain't even bad. Just be up front and honest about it. What you said below, should've been enough without having to make false statements like you're breaking even which ain't even close.

For the record I don't think what you're doing is wrong at all. I just wish the details weren't fudged over when the community questions.

^That is beautiful.

PS. Please continue and don't mind my minor intrusions.

This makes no sense. A simple PM to Brett saying I paid more than what it was listed for and attaching your PM's between you and the original seller would have diffused any potential for Brett to say that you were ripping him off. I'm sure Brett would appreciate such a PM with an offer to purchase.

Now that you have been called out are you going to remove the listing and offer it to Brett?

If he had not posted this, and PMed me inquiring to the situation, then possibly. I originally offered it to him if it did not work out for me (at cost), but after all of his posts made in this thread earlier, I decided that if I offered it to him at the higher price I would get another entire thread of how now I am a douche. Sometimes its not worth the headache. I decided not to go that route, I decided to not even try SF.

A regular pythagoras over here . I said I would just about break even on it. Who said I paid 3xx, or 4xx or 10xx. No prices have been discussed. The original auction has been cancelled and I found a leather maker who re-crafted the case. It cost 23,000. I will not add that into the new auction price.

Dude I so wanna be on your side cause you're probably just good guy trying to make a buck just like the rest of us. But I just dont' understand why you keep making statements that generally don't add up.

Oh Im just fucking around. Here is the the bottom line.... I paid around 400 for it. I said I would just about break even. Would the right thing have been to offer it to Brett at that price? Most definitely, but after all was taken into account, I figured this was the path of least resistance. Of course, making some cash was also a motivator in it, and I never denied that. So all in all, 80% off a beautiful briefcase WHOS BUYING.
