Anybody deal with "bob from wisconsin"


Recommended Posts

Anybody deal with this idiot?

 

I get an email from this guy "bob from wisconsin" (metalhead@...) wanting to buy CDRs in bulk. He claims that he has 40,000 CDRs in his collection. He writes like a 10-year-old kid with horrible spelling and grammar. He says that he buys hundreds of CDRs a month.

 

I respond saying that I can help him but "I will not make copies of material that is still in print. Only material that is no longer in print in the U.S." Those are the standard terms I've used in my trading for years. If it's in print, BUY IT!

 

I then get a response that starts off as hello dan i know whom you are i am hoping you are not a prick like a lot of people say you are, then goes on to say i do buy copies of recent titles at 4-5 dollars a piece and if i am not good enough to sell to than let me know i will go else were ok

 

Mkay. This is bizarre on so many different levels:

  1. I've been out of the active trading scene for several years. Even so I'm unaware of *any* trades (originals or CDRs) that I was involved in that went badly... other than a few with Manny Comres, and those ended badly for me, not him. As far as I knew my trading/selling credentials were impeccable.
  2. I told him up front no new/recent/inprint titles, but apparently that is what he is after. Guy just can't take no for an answer.
  3. If I am such a prick like "a lot of people say I am", why the hell is he contacting me in the first place?
  4. "... not good enough to sell to" Wee bit paranoid, eh?

Sounds to me like I'm being scammed by a kid... or have other people dealt with this guy?

Sounds to me like you should delete, ignore, destroy this guy's e-mail address (after you've told him to quit bothering you of course!)

Sounds fishy to me... maybe like a set up or something....

It's been a long time since I've gotten one, but I used to get emails from this guy fairly regularly asking if he could buy a bunch of CD-Rs from me. I told him that I didn't sell CD-Rs, that I was only interested in trading CD-Rs of rare and OOP stuff. That was usually followed by a "I'm sorry I don't have time to burn and trade Cd-Rs" email, and he would then offer to pay VERY WELL for whatever CD-Rs I would burn for him. I usually just ignored/deleted once it got to that point.

Just got a followup email from him. I think I'm going to steer clear of the guy.

 

i have been in this collecting of cds for almost 18 years i have met a shit load of woantabees i got my collection the hard way i dont believe in kissing anbodys asses yes i can be a very very nice person but on the other hand i can be just as nasty as the next person dan i get tons of emails every day from plane and simple assholes out there that want free cds and art work i here that you are the worst of the worst i personaly hope that is not the case all i am asking is you treat me with respect and i will do the same and again i buy cds already i thought that mabe we could do business privately like i do with my guy and become good friends ???? please get back to me thanks bob

 

Eh? The last time I actively sought CDRs and artwork in trades was over 5 years ago, probably longer. I've only been interested in originals for a looooooooong time now. Methinks the guy has me confused with someone else.

 

:screwy:

If you are not able to determine where the email originated from.......I have two people in mind that it could be. I'll pm you......

 

The person's grammar and style sound like them.....

 

I used to get emails from 'George from Greece' all the time. I do not know a George from Greece but I have a very good idea who 'George' is....so I just ignore them.

Yep, :agree: ! I would steer clear as well. I can't imagine you need these kind of contacts.

looks like he still hasn't fixed that 'period' key on his keyboard...

 

 

and I thought he didn't believe in kissing ass? <_<

 

 

He doesn't appear to be terribly fond of capitalization or punctuation either.

 

I think that is the longest, most insane run-on sentence I've ever seen... it made me tired just to read it

Interesting trivia about Wisconsin:

 

Two of history's worst serial killers, Ed Gein and Jeffery Dahmer, were both Wisconsin natives.

 

Senator Joseph McCarthy, a crazed spittle emitting senator who instituted the anti-Commie witch hunts of the 1950s that ruined countless lives, represented Wisconsin.

 

Now we have "Bob," who is from Wisconsin.

 

What the hell is UP with them folks out there in Wisconsin? Is it something in the cheese???

 

Before anybody who might BE from Wisconsin takes offense, I have visited your lovely state several times and had a great trip every time. I'm just wondering. ;)

Ah, the art of insluting someone with an apology ;)
