Unfortunately, people (buyers) aren’t often fair when they lose a lot of money on a recent purchase, and they lash out at us. In my lifetime we have seen this over and over again, here is one of the most recent examples from this year (example from ViralAccounts):
- Buyer buys a fanpage for 5000 USD, he was semi-new to this world, so I’ve warned him about the uncertainty of this market.
- 16-days later, the page gets banned.
- Buyer blames us.
- Buyer tries to take us to court.
- The buyer uses excuses such as:
“This page was probably ■■■■.”
“This page probably had a bad history.”
“Just give my money back you will never hear from me again.”
“I will get my money back, you will see.”
My point, before a purchase buyers are blinded by their goals and agree to anything we say. But then things go wrong they get bitter and look for any excuse to find a scapegoat.
This is why I always warn people “if you don’t have money to burn, don’t get into this business.” But even that doesn’t work sometimes. This is why I prefer to treat people like children and basically not give them what they want even when they want it This is probably a bad way of going about this, but you don’t see our end of things. Many, many, many people lost ALL their fanpages. We’ve already had 2-3 big tickets fall through during transfers (I mean literally pages were deleted during transfers or shortly after).
