I wouldn't get too upset about it just yet. Especially with how the current economy is, sometimes things come up, it sucks and yes it would be nice if there had been a courtesy notice to say they couldn't go further on the deal. But with such a low number of attempts here so far, I wouldn't take it too personal just yet. I have had a few transactions here, and unfortunately I had to back out of half a deal due to personal issues that came up at the time, but I did let the seller know a head of time so that if he could find another buyer then there wouldn't be any hard feelings on my end of the deal.
And just like you, I had a few offers on a couple coins that the potential buyers back out of without notice. But that too is ok, as I didn't lose anything in the process. In fact, I didn't actually have intentions of selling those couple of coins but I did entertain the offers.
Basically what I am saying is "Let it roll off like water off a ducks back" and continue to enjoy the other happenings around here.
Removed my reason for leaving so others would not feel it was a "grab for attention"

If you have a dream about out-posting me, you better wake up and apologize.

I know what the PCGS guys will say here but is this the norm? Guess im done selling anything here.
Please do not think ill of the observations I make, because they are usually of no value, and are never intended to be less than mannerly.
So, why allow a buyer to string you along for weeks, after the buyer committed to a price?
It would seem to me that lack of quick follow thru on the part of the buyer is a "tell" that all was not well, and it was time to move on.
Doing so may have assisted you in evaluating buyers here vs. there, as opposed to a norm conclusion.
just unlucky, just move on and continue to sell here and ATS
Well I wasnt even selling any coins. I posted them to show them off and these guys made similar offers on the same coin which made me start thinking about selling. I wasnt actively selling, maybe that has something to do with it.
maybe they found out they both bought the same coin
When the 2nd guy contacted me, I told him it was on hold. When the first guy backed out, he said he was in. FIgured this was obvious enough to not need an explanation the first time around. Sorry for that mistake.
Well, for what its worth, I am pretty new to the boards here....I haven't made an appearance ATS as I manage to keep my horizon filled right here. I have bought several pieces from people here and have nothing but good to say about those transactions. I paid, they delivered...it was textbook perfect. Sorry you had a bad experience, but its probably bound to happen sooner or later to everyone...both here and ATS.
