How NOT To Buy Online

Every once in a while, we at the office receive a peculiar inquiry. Below is one that we recently found in our mail box. If you’re reading this Blog, you most likely know how our websites operate. We provide a platform for sellers to post warez and buyers to browse it. If a buyer comes across something of interest, they are free to contact the seller using the information provided. Power buyers know all too well that the faster they contact the seller the better. Competition is stiff, and if a half-decent deal is posted to the site you can bet there will be others racing to the Email button. You can imagine our bewilderment then, when Chris from Eugene, Oregon contacted us via snail mail in hopes of acquiring an old cassette deck. We checked on the ad and lo and behold, it had expired and the contact information was lost. In a last ditch effort to reunite Chris with cassette, I am posting his letter. If you are the seller of this Denon cassette deck DRW-840 (or know someone who has one), feel free to email me at Otherwise you can take this as a prime example of how not to use an online classifieds site.
