I always liked Maytag's Coppertone, along with GE/Hotpoint's shade. The picture makes it look somewhat more orange than it really is, at least on this screen.

The listing page

has a "FREE" 1986 Ford Mustang. In Detroit, so who knows why? Hot, phony v.i.n., salvaged, blown engine/trans/etc.

He sent me a message today that said when can I come pick them up, I said today, he then said he is busy all day until this weekend, then marked them as sold and has not returned any of my messages, I hope he honestly sold them to someone who will take care of them, if they are even his to sell jsut sounds like a scam to me

Wow! Iím sorry to hear that. Iíve noticed that sellers seem to be getting increasingly sketchy these days and it can be very frustrating.

He may have marked them as sold because he considers them sold to you and wanted the calls and messages from others to stop. He did say he wouldn't be available until this weekend, so keep trying until then.

I agree with d-jones

It could be very possible he marked them as sold because he considers them sold to you. While it's rude to ignore someone's messages and DM's on any site I've found Facebook is pretty notorious for that when dealing with people listing items for sale.


So many sellers on Facebook are not only very TLDR but also very "I don't have time for that" about communication with potential buyers. They aren't bound by rules, procedure, and time limits like eBay, Amazon, Etsy, or any traditional structured selling service.


Facebook Marketplace has no real feedback system either which lends an air of no consequences to casual sellers. They get to things when they get to them and really don't seem to be bothered by the general niceties of good business, nor are they seemingly very concerned as to whether or not they'll lose the sell because of it.


I bought something from someone where despite making an agreement early on it was almost 3 months later before we got to a point where I could go get it. Don't give up on it yet.

Sellers are nuts

laundryboy's profile picture
I heard from the seller today, he said he has investors that want to purchase these machines for double the price he had them listed for, Not sure who is investing in Maytags, but kudos to the seller for making some extra money on them.\

He will keep me informed this weekend if they are still available after his investors come look at them

Sounds like a fishy story. It seems like he had more interest than he expected and is trying to see if he can get more money than he had them listed for. He was probably hoping youíd offer to pay the double amount instead. I donít like dealing with people who do that kind of stuff and it happens a lot on FB unfortunately. Good luck if they come back to you.

Investors? I would tell him to shove those Maytags into a delicate spot!

He's looking for more money.

He thinks you want them and thinks you will offer him more if you think someone else is going to get them.

That sucks...

sudsomatic's profile picture


And I fully rescind my giving him the benefit of the doubt from yesterdays post. There's lazy business tactics and then there's just being an A-hole.


He sounds like he's watched too many movies with this 'private investors' BS, as much as it sucks to lose this awesome dryer sounds like you're better off not dealing with him.
