Thread: Selling on RJ - WHY do strangers ask to be your friend? POLL

  1. #1

    Selling on RJ - WHY do strangers ask to be your friend? POLL

    Seems like anytime I am selling something on RJ there are a number of strangers that respond by requesting to be a friend. I always ignore these requests.

    I dont do the social media like myspace, facebook, etc. as I dont want to potentially engage any freaks or crooks.

    However, this time I am selling a car, and don't want to turn away potential buyers.

    Am I mistakenly ignoring interested buyers? Do serious buyers ever respond first by requesting to be a friend?

    Maybe some think the more friends they have the better it looks when they sell stuff (maybe scam someone) , I dont accept many and deleted a lot of people that I dont know.

    If someone can see your pics and you have completed your profile it may give a perspective buyer the chance to see who you really are????
