It seems like more and more often, people are putting listings on "lockdown" for watches that they want while they take a couple weeks or so to come up with the money, if ever. Not only was this extremely frustrating when I thought my watch was sold and subsequently wasn't, but now there's a watch that I want to buy and that the seller is willing to sell to me. But alas, since someone convinced the seller to accept an offer to buy and thus put his/her listing in a reserved status, we both have to play the waiting game and be at the mercy of someone who may or may not ever pay.
If I'm ultimately able to buy this watch, great, I'll snatch it right up. But once that is said and done, I'm deleting my account. They need to offer better protections for consumers if I'm to come back. Has anyone else had anything similar happen to them?
I feel better now.
