      Had a little incident with a buyer a few days back. Some of you might have read it in the chat window.

      Here goes:

      Was selling a 16GB kit (2x8GB) DDR3 (not DDR3L) 1600MHz SODIMM rams on the website. The ad was running for a few weeks now with some queries and some low ballers as usual.

      There was one buyer, that previously made an offer that was rejected, who kept bugging me with his same offer. So I offered him a good price to make a deal. Guy stuck with his price and starting giving me a sob story about how his budget was fixed as he had a new born kid etc etc...

      The price he offered wasn't fantastic but I can live with the money in my pocket instead of the rams sitting around taking up space. So I reckon why not, do him a favour and let him have it since he asked nicely.

      I made sure he knows what he is getting and I guess he knows which systems/cpus it can be used on. It was a pretty last minute meetup, and I had to delay my meeting with a seller for another I'm buying, just to meet him and pass him the rams.

      The handover was pretty straightforward. Nothing complex. Passed him the rams, told him to check carefully to make sure they are right ones and he passed me the $$$. He told me he will be doing memtests on them that same night and let me know the results.

      Around 11pm that night came a flurry of messages from the buyer. He started sending me screen shots (taken from his mobile) of what looked like Dell BIOS hardware tests on the memory and something that looked like memtests. The way he took the pictures seem to indicate he is trying to hide something. I guess he was trying to hide the laptop models that the testing was done, as the screens looked different. One particular screen shot did show the system had a 2nd gen i5.

      So he started saying the rams were faulty and he has tested it on a few laptops. I queried him on what he did and he started saying he works in IT and knows what he is doing. Ok... at this point I knew I should just go straight to the point. I asked him what cpus were in laptops that he tested the rams on. Turns out one had a Core2Duo, one was the 2nd gen i5 and the last was a 4th gen Intel CPU (he din mention actual CPU).

      Wait... I thought he is cash strapped and yet can have so many systems... plus he had another system, more on that later.

      Core2Duo is an immediate fail... it doesn't support 8GB per stick DDR3 at all. The 2nd gen i5 maybe can work as it does support DDR3. However, 4th gen Intel CPUs don't support DDR3 at all! Looked further into the 2nd gen i5 and turns out it supports max 8GB of rams in 2x4GB config. Thus it doesn't support 8GB per stick DDR3, third strike.

      Want to know how I find out? Check out the link below...
      Supported Memory for Intel® Core™ Mobile Processor Family

      So to me this guy is trying to pull a stunt on me. Using laptops that don't even fucking support the rams and when it fails or run errors it is faulty??? Pointed out his testing mistakes to him, and lo and behold, he suddenly has an alienware M17xR3 that supports those rams and he will test the rams on it.

      I need to mention at this point I was chatting with the seller of the item I collected after meeting buyer of the rams. I mistakenly entered messages meant for the seller in the chat window for the buyer. I mentioned that this buyer kept bugging me to sell it to him at a discount (Truth one) and now he got this type of stunt (Truth two).

      Buyer flew into a rage and started making accusations. Said want to go to police to report me for selling faulty items, want me to bring my laptop to the NPC to test and if the tests are successful will pay me double the price blah blah blah. I said no worries. I can prove the rams are working and your tests are invalid.

      He got pissed off and said he will immediately test the rams using his M17xR3 and if the results (it was late and I reckon he will look at it in the morning) are bad then I have no further excuses.

      So the following morning, I was waiting all morning for his continued complains. Instead, at around 10am+ I got a conciliatory message. My guess was the memtests he ran earlier in the morning came back good on his M17xR3 and he has to eat his words now. He said he has started a thorough memtest before he left home for work and feedback to me afterwards. To try to calm the situation he said no point arguing and then said peace. I guess it is more a face saving move.

      Again, that evening I was waiting for his feedback about the memtest. Nothing came through. No message that evening, no message the next day and he has not been on Carousell since. I reckon if it was faulty, he would have been all over me like a rash immediately.


      tl;dr version
      Guy buys rams, tested it on systems that don't support them and claim the rams are faulty. Then when pointed out his test systems don't support the rams he bought, he pulls out another laptop that does support it. He runs tests on rams overnight and in the morning sends message saying he started a thorough memtest and will update me afterwards. No messages since.

      My guess was either:
      - He had a few old laptops lying around and he wanted to find a quick (and free) way to test if 8GB per stick rams work on them (more likely now)
      - He had similar rams that are faulty and he is trying to palm them on me (less likely now)

      Do you folks think he was trying to scam me?

      I dunno why people like to use ”i work in IT, i know what I'm doing" type of response when disputes arise concerning computer items that they bought.

      To me that means jack shit. It just means you are trying to hide behind a cover to try to bedazzle the other party.

      To me that is the most kumgong move anyone can pull. You have just proven to experienced people that you are an idiot.

      Latest update... No sound no action from the buyer already.

      Must be shocked that his scheme has been exposed beyond reasonable doubt.

      Do you guys think i should leave a negative feedback for him?

      I agree with you. Sometimes the issue might be really easy to address. Why not address it?

      Unless it is truly a scam then need to gleam a bit of info to back ourselves up just in case.

      I had one case, the buyer agreed to the price and agreed to do pick up. Then he asked where the pick up location and I told him, as per the ad, it is at Bedok MRT (EW5). His immediate reply was... "Har? So far ah? I let you know later." and then disappeared ever since.

      Why a lot of buyers don't bother reading the ad properly? The meetup locations are listed in the ad in one particular section.

      You sound like a seasoned businessman who can navigate Carouhell. That's a badge of honour and a sign that you are not just a low ses peasant like the rest of us.

      But yes, you are still entitled to a public opinion - my take is, as an honest businessman, give an honest review. No need for bashing language; simply give the facts that this buyer doesn't appear to be consistent in action and intent, and appears to be easily triggered. If the review doesn't suffice as a fair warning to others, they may proceed at their own risk.
