So I sent them an e-mail expressing my interest in buying the chair and ottoman. Check it out
an tell me what YOU think!
Hi. If the lounge chair & ottoman are still available could I possibly make arrangements to see
them this weekend?
From me: (second e-mail - day later)
Hi, I e-mailed yesterday asking if the Eames / Miller chair and ottoman were still available. I
can come look at them today or tomorrow if they are. Could you let me know if the set is still
available or if they are gone?
Thanks for being interested in buying my Vintage 70's Herman Miller Eames LOUNGE
CHAIR & OTTOMAN Rosewood , I will start my email by telling you that I'm currently
out of country so pick up isn't an option. The item is as described, in perfect condition and
will be delivered at your home address. Total price will be $1400 and the transaction will
be made only through eBay because because they will handle with all that it has to be done,
the shipping, payment and passing the item in to your property. Right now I'm in Italy, just
arrived here 3 days ago. Before I left I found a buyer and I had everything arranged. I paid
for the shipping and almost sent it to him. But yesterday the buyer that I had asked me to
wait another 4 weeks because he suddenly had other priorities and he is out of money for
the moment. I can't wait this long as I'm in Italy for 3 days now and i really need the money,
I am in the moving process, changing the work place and everything. A major issue is that
if you want to buy my item you really need to have the money ready for it.
This purchase protection guarantees that the item is exactly as I described; basically, once
delivered, you'll have 10 working days to inspect it at your home and if you decide not to
keep it you will get refunded in no time and they will charge me with the return costs. If the
item meets your expectations and you want to keep it you will have to tell them to release
the payment to me. If you are interested in this purchase please reply me with your full name
and shipping address. After that i will pass your details to eBay and you will receive an
invoice and further instructions as how will you be able to get possession of the item .
Let me know your thoughts .
Whoa....sorry....I ONLY buy cash in hand and ONLY after I have a chance to inspect the
chair. If you can find a way to have a trusted friend or relative show me the chair I'd be
super happy to come by and check it out and pay them in Cash. I'd be happy to document
the transaction in photos that I can e-mail you during the sale.
So yeah, it sounds pretty scammy, right? Too Bad. Grrrrrr....
