I have been offered a bargin on a Facebook selling site.
Its worth say 200 and its advertised for 40.
Lots of people are commenting but as I was first I have it, and im very excited as there is no way I could afford it new.
Would I BU to be a bit sceptical even though ive checked the price tons and am delighted?

what is it?

Other than probably a stolen thing.

MikeTheShite Wed 12-Mar-14 19:47:34

It is a bugaboo pram

A Bugaboo for £40?!

MikeTheShite Wed 12-Mar-14 19:50:11

See thats my reaction

Let me guess....

It's* advertised as a bargain because it's stolen.

You'd be unreasonable to not be wary.

Unless it's software that corrects your spelling and punctuation and corrects txtspk, in which case you really need it, so why not take a gamble.

A new bugaboo ?

UnicornCrisps Wed 12-Mar-14 19:55:14

I'd worry that it was either stolen or in a state. Some things are too good to be true.

MikeTheShite Wed 12-Mar-14 19:55:16

I apologise I am on my phoneconfused

UnicornCrisps Wed 12-Mar-14 19:55:43

Can you have a good.snoop at the persons fb page?

MikeTheShite Wed 12-Mar-14 19:57:18

It all looks okay Unicorn to be honest

Be careful with your pennies. No such thing as a free lunch and all that. These were on Watchdog for being fake a few months ago.

Have a look on Ebay and see how much they are selling for second hand. If the price of the one on FB is markedly different (is it REALLY £40, or was that just a for instance example?) then be suspicious.

Stolen.

Shakirasma Wed 12-Mar-14 19:58:08

Someone near me had their bugaboo stolen from their car boot, after they forgot to lock the car one night last week.

MyNameIsKenAdams Wed 12-Mar-14 19:58:11

Maybe ot stinks of smoke or cats piss?

MikeTheShite Wed 12-Mar-14 19:58:52

I think I should leave it, shouldn't I?

cardamomginger Wed 12-Mar-14 20:00:02

Probably. Is there any buyer protection? If not, DEFINITELY leave it.

VeggySausage Wed 12-Mar-14 20:03:06

what bugaboo is it? A frog might only be 40. I got a bargain pram off fb selling site. Reeked of fags when I got home

cherrypez Wed 12-Mar-14 20:03:42

Was there actually any need to pick on the OP's spelling/punctuation Desiderata, other than to feel smug at your own superior literacy skills? Rude!

VeggySausage Wed 12-Mar-14 20:03:48

i would have a look at it though, some people really don't mind selling things cheap ,they just want rid

cherrypez Wed 12-Mar-14 20:05:53

And FYI, if you ask OP a (rude) rhetorical question, you need a question mark following it.

VeggySausage Wed 12-Mar-14 20:06:10

Ah be nice cherry desirata clearly doesn't understand she is on a chat forum and that no one is sitting here with a big fat red pen giving a fuck about other people's grammar except for her

MikeTheShite Wed 12-Mar-14 20:06:20

It is a first generation cameleon and has a stiff handle if that helps.
She seems really nice we have got talking and seems we are both single mums and she would like to make new friends as its been a recent relocation
