Default Got Scammed

By a bald woman with cancer no less

Long story short we are getting a new dog this weekend and we are crating her. My last crate I let someone "borrow" I don't even remember who and its gone. Anyway I figured I would save some money and look on Craigslist. I find one, and email the seller. Its a Midwest crate for large dogs and a double door for 75 bucks almost new condition. Perfect, we really need the double door (door on end and on side). We arrange to meet in the Costco parking lot this morning, we had to go there anyway. We meet get to talking I take a quick look at the box and put it in the back of the truck. In the mean time she and her sister are talking to my wife. I pay her and we leave. I get home and open up the box, its a large dog crate alright but not a double door. I'm pissed, my wife is laughing because I'm the guy who always says make sure your getting what you paid for

I emailed the woman to ask about the double door, she says its NOT a double door, I copy and paste her email to me stating it was.........she replied OH WELL......Buyer beware :bang head:

I wasn't really mad until I google the crate and realized I could have bought the same one new for 65 bucks

Always check other peoples work. Whether is the drive through at McDonalds or buying something for $2 dollars. I have been burned so many times and now it is burned into my mind that other people have no clue.

Sorry about your crate.
