    Hi all,

    I have an item for sale on the classifieds. Concluded a sale but the buyer is clearly no longer interested. I assume this as no payment has been made.
    I have had no further communication form the buyer. For me it is not about the sale it’s about the principal . IMHO against the spirit of the forum.
    Does this happen often ?

    Hi,

    No its not you. I would discuss with the member first. Would not go saying things about people unless they know I’m hacked off with them.

    Anyway not sure how the HOB skimmer would actually fit on your concrete tank…..

    Please forward members name to me as i would like to know why this happened? This would be instant loss of privileges into the classified section.
