    Lol, me neither. Just found it strange that someone would sign up on ebay and immediatley purchase a seriously outdated tuxedo at an absurd BIN price.

    KMP....(Keep me posted)

    I had to look that up.

    I thought it might mean Krazy Muther Phucker lol.

    Bulk edit...all now are IPR. I tried to set that up a while back (I'm talking 2 years or more), but I was unable to for some reason.

    Couldn't find a clip, but this was the most appropriate scene from The Office:

    Michael: Okay, you know what? I will not donate my winnings to comic relief since apparently it doesn’t exist. I am going to donate to Afghanistanis with AIDS.

    Jim: I think you mean the aid to Afghanistan.

    Michael: No, I mean Afghanistanis with AIDS.

    Phyllis: “Afghani.”

    Michael: What?

    Phyllis: It’s “Afghani.”

    Michael: That’s a dog.

    Pam: No, that’s afghan.

    Michael: That’s a shawl.

    Dwight: Wait, canine AIDS?

    Michael: No, humans with AIDS.

    Creed: Who has AIDS?

    Jim: Guys, the Afghanistananis.

    I'm trying to think though the permutations, and I think this does cover me. Bottom line, it's the lack of tracking that's the most worrisome. If he doesn't get it but someone else does (or he does and he's just scamming me), can I claim on the insurance? Anybody know?

    :confused:

    Priority has tracking, but not signature capture. You can claim an insurance claim either for undelivered or "damaged". Yafeels?

    About a year ago I sold a pair of BB Women's riding boots to an SF member from Kazakhstan. Smooth transaction.

    I've heard of Turkmenistan. Sterling Archer had a rough time there this week.

    Yikes. Just listed an Aquascutum raincoat and this warning popped up. Scared me!

    ^I've seen that come up for heavily branded designers, but not that brand before. Odd.

    I got that last week for an old Burberry's coat. I decided it wasn't worth the aggravation. Seems like it's a pretty random process that picks up items to question.

    I get that message when I'm listing certain brands...wouldn't think I'd see it for something like Aquascutum though!


    Don't you hate that sinking feeling you get when communicating with a potential buyer? A series of messages began with asking for a discounted price (I obliged) to what my return policy is to shipping it cheaper. To be fair, they have been polite the entire time, but it always worries me when someone asks a return policy and wants to negotiate shipping prices.

    Of course, it could be completely reasonable, so I'm not sure!
