Use their stupidity to your advantage. I sold my truck on FM for $3000 more than it was worth.

One thing I enjoy doing is indicating interest in an item, then agreeing to meet at a public place and not showing up. I actually do show up to watch their frustration but I’m not the “buyer.” ??

I am trying to sell a high-top bar table on FM. Other than at least 30 "Is this still available?" messages that were never followed up on by the sender, the amount of stupidity among these people is unparalleled.


Yes, facebook is where all the stupid lives. I've had at least 15 people ask "is this still available" and no follow up.

My wife was selling a comforter for $50 and at least 5 idiots thought she was selling a king size bed.

I know what you mean OP, I can’t stand all that. Anyhow, my business has been rough and my family and I have been needing a table like that. I’ll take it off your hands for free if that’s ok, I’m sure you understand.

Nextdoor will showcase the idiots more than FB.

There should be a daily "Next Door Post of the Day" thread.

Facebook is a clear indication how far we've fallen as a society.

Before FB, we just thought people were stupid. Then they go on FB and prove it.

re: Dealing with the dregs of society on Facebook Marketplace
I sold a car on Facebook Marketplace. It was a Volvo S60, I billed it as a nice car for a first time driver - it had 140k miles on it but I took care of it. I don't think anyone ever sat in the back seat. I priced it about trade in value.

Hundreds of messages like that. "I just lost my car, can you give this to me." "This would be perfect for my 16 year old daughter, I can give you $500"

Met a woman who wanted to buy it who brought her pastor with her. The pastor told me I blessed I would be if I gave this car to this woman.

Decided I wouldn't do that again.

Lol I’ve seen the “I just lost my job” trick when we tried to sell stuff on there. Don’t waste your time


Yeah, with the job market the way it is, even if it were true, that person could have three new jobs by 5 PM.

And if a person truly did lose their job, why are they chilling on the internet shopping for things like high-top bars?

re: Dealing with the dregs of society on Facebook Marketplace
We gave away some furniture on there a couple of years ago. Wife told me to take pics of the furniture and post it. I told her I didn't have Facebook on my phone(I still don't) so she'd have to do it. I knew the responses we'd get and I didn't want to deal with it. She posted it, went upstairs to do a couple of things and came back downstairs 5 minutes later showing me the 20 messages she'd already gotten. None of them were to actualy come get it. They were "still available?" or "can you hold it until I get off work? or "my boo is trying to find a truck but we're on our way". She immediately knew the real reason I made her post the ad.
