Would you buy from this man

I buy a lot on Ebay (and sell) but this scares me

Would you buy from him what would you do if you found it faulty

What scares you?

He looks like a nice chap who probably suffers from low self esteem.
I do like his dress scenes which shows he does not surcombe to pride which is a quality that wins me over to his side.

As you know I do not like to generalise but so often folk with tattoos have low self-esteem and are merely seeking attention... in addition they often lack confidence I suspect in their ability to fight so use tattoos to sort of scare folk off.

Praise their tattoos and tell them they look tuff and most times you have them in the palm of your hand.

If you have trouble with him burn down his house that will teach him not to ever mess with you again.

I wouldn't buy his scope but I would like a pair of those pants and Oh, those booties! What a treasure! Name your price.

I wouldn't judge a book by it's cover. Never have, and never will. I have dealt with absolute a$$hats who were clean cut high end job people, I have dealt with people who most would judge as "white trash" yet were salt of the Earth.

Scope etc looks perfectly fine. You don't show his price, so how can we judge?

TBH, I'd trust this guy a hell of a lot more than that absolute pratt BoJo you have as PM!

I agree with Jeremy that the owner's presence in the photo will probably reduce chances of a sale.

I do like the usual sage advice from Alex

The guy is an attention seeker I feel perhaps as a general rule but certainly his ploy to get in the photo will get some milage..any publicity is good publicity...and who knows someone reading this thread may be inspired to buy.

Sorry yes that is what I meant, MY advice would be IF you are like this, don't appear

BUT I did meet and photograph this lovely girl who, sorry, looks TERRIBLE (to me), in London, I truly assured here I was NOT taking the photograph for ANY untoward reason

She was in the Oakley shop, VERY quiet and reserved believe it or not

Looks like an everyday, run-of-the-mill Romulan to me...
