Avoid Stuart Simpson in England

Avoid dealing with Stuart Simpson (in Corby, Northants, England). He sent me an email saying he would buy a knife I had for sale. After half a dozen emails re: international shipping, etc. he asks me to sharpen the knife for him before I ship it out. After I email him to tell him the knife is sharpened, boxed up and ready to go he emails back saying he has been offered the same knife for less money and "unless I lower my price pretty dramatically" he won't buy it.

Bad form, manipulative behavior and a waste of 3 hours of my time over the holidays. I would not trust him at all.

Hope this saves someone else some frustration,
Most of the time, interaction like this never gets reported in this forum. I for one, appreciate knowing about it. :thumbup:
