    Card cases. Different colors for different sides is fine.

    Good lessons in conducting business.

    1) NEVER discuss a business deal (except to one's partners) until the deal is closed... AND delivered.

    2) There is no such thing as "Trust" in business... Money trumps all else (Unless you have an ongoing business relationship, in which case Money STILL trumps trust... just to your advantage in this case).

    if it was an sf member im disappointed.:confused: i agree it wasnt smart but i had already paid him the money, it was a low move to refund it he shouldve at least countered and gave me a chance to match it.

    It's happened to me a few times here; it's no biggie in the end - it's only clothing...

    You misunderstand me, my friend. You were 100% right! You did nothing wrong & acted like a gentleman throughout your transaction.

    As an honorable businessman who relies on reputation, I believe that once money is accepted, the deal is done. The point of my post was that many (or most) do NOT conduct their business that way, and it's a good thing to be aware of that & act accordingly.

    ^^Agreed. I too am surprised he backed out on your deal. Did he mention how much more the other guy offered?

    Since this is off ebay he should hopefully let you match, since no one can damage his reputation (although in this case, you kind of wish you could :laugh: )
