Sigh is America really hated because of me?
I just had to share this with the forums.
I upgraded my phone so I had my old phone to sell.
The moment before the auction ends, I get an email:
notice the ZERO feedback and asking about a SPRINT phone for sale in Africa...
How many of those phones could you provide me for resale in Africa. They must be able to take a chip and card number.
so I fire back:
to which he replies:
Lol I dont think so scammer sir.
#1 CDMA doesnt work outside the US.
#2 does it look like I am a wholeseller?
what lovely grammar, and he gives me his phone number to boot.
I am not a scammer just someone who never visited this site before. I do not know whether you are wholesale or retail. Anyhow you answer is typical American and a good reason why you are hated around the planet.
St. Johns Nfld. Canada
709 NUMBER REMOVED
so, unsually nice, I write back:
and he has the balls to write back:
Well pardon me for presuming. But as an EBAYER, zero feedback plus someone from another continent (yes Africa, Nigeria mostly is known for ebay/online scams) asking questions that IF the person asking the question knew about the actual phone, which I would presume if you wanted LOTS of them, you would also know that phone IS NOT anything but CDMA i.e. USA only. So on a couple of counts, you seem a sham.
Sorry to have gotten you wrong, but you sir are far more shady than you let on.
no signature with phone number this time.
so I say nicely:
and of course he says:
Wow, now honestly did it really need to come to this? All you had to do was ignore and laugh off my email. And now youve gotten yourself so angry over nothing but a common misunderstanding.
I guess Ill ask my religious friends to pray for you.
but I had to say something because I realized this guy hates America but is on a ****en AOL.COM email account! so I quote his first email and reply:
Pray for the innocent people you are killing in Irag. I do not need your right wing bull****
and I fired off another about his IRAG <----- notice the G, comment:

Anyhow you answer is typical American and a good reason why you are hated around the planet.
From someone who is using AMERICA Online, this is just too ironic NOT to point out.
Also, I still see they dont teach grammar up north. I personally am not hated around the world, you mean to say America is. But your wording is just so off, I felt a need to correct your context.
he stopped writing after I sent him this email:
Who said right wing? I like the thigh myself.
And I think its still spelled Iraq, with a Q not a G.
I like the Made in America part.
YOUR EMAIL HAS BEEN REDFLAGGED...
AND SENT STRAIGHT TO MY WASTEBASKET!
PLEASE DO NOT TRY TO SEND ANYMORE EMAILS FROM
AS THEY TOO WILL BE TRASHED!

Anyway I thought someone might want to kill 5 minutes reading this and thinking to themselves, wow, I guess the rest of the world DOES hate us.
And you can take solace in knowing, its because of me.
