Did anyone get the Beautiful Columbia for free on Staten Island, NY. Saw it late last night and can't find it today.

It wasn’t really free. They wanted more than $1,000.00 for it.

How do you compute "FREE" with $1,000 ? :?

One of my pet peeves with Facebook Marketplace is that you are essentially required to put a price down that shows on your listing title, but you can then put anything you want in the listing. A lot of sellers put FREE for the price to make it eye catching, then put the real price in the listing.

I asked them and they said that it was listed between $1200 and $1500, but that they were open to offers.

There is another screwed up answer...
How can it be "listed" BETWEEN $1200 and $1500... it's either $1200 OR $1500 OR BETWEEN would be $1350. And any of "list prices" is over the top...
They are trying to "auction it off" on a non-auction website... these are screwed up sellers... would they consider $1200 to be an "offer"... :? :lol:

I agree completely. I don’t like to play games. Provide a price and negotiate or don’t.
