Ive had 2 so far flake out after we made deals the last few weeks. one I even held for a couple weeks.

Kids have no respect for their word. I guess integrity isn't something parents teach no more. I love passing up sales because I trusted them. Sad people are such flakes
 
If you gave them every chance and good faith effort and they still turned craigslist flake on you, nuke em' in the feedback. Otherwise they will just continue to waste other peoples time as well. I wouldn't get all dramatic in the review, just the facts of the situation would do.
 
My old boss used to say; “don’t make me circumcise you with pinking shears”

OP...if they flaked after genuine communication, I would give them a negative feedback. That way the rest if us won’t get burned.

I’ll bet there were no urinals at that work-place, huh? :s0112:

That's how I picked up that jungle carbine in the classifieds just last Friday. The seller was a good guy, holding it for him and even willing to meet him halfway between Medford & Portland. Instead the guy disappeared and I had second dibs.

The guy was a jerk. I got a nice gun. :cool:
 
If the final deal was made and they flaked or were a no-show, you can leave a negative feedback. It provides warning for future transactions. (I have zero tolerance for flakes, either business or pleasure, so I personally would.)

One of the board rules, for whatever it is worth is:

Follow through once you commit to a purchase, sale, or trade
Once you commit to a deal you should do your best to follow through. Members who flake on deals will likely receive negative feedback, which will not be removed.
Cheers.
