What is the strangest question reguarding your item?

Level 1
I get a lot of questions like..
"Do you accept EBT?"
"Can I get a refund if it doesn't fit?"
"I know it says $10. FIRM, will you take $1.50?"
What strange/crazy questions have you gotten?

@K-Zakk How about "Can I pay you with check?"
Who in their right mind accept check for OU sales. Now that is crazy!

@K-Zakk Welcome to the community! Coming in hot with a great new topic too!! Smiley LOL

Hmmm... I think the strangest thing I've ever been asked is if I come with the item. Maybe more gross/creepy than strange. Getting asked if you accept EBT is definitely a new one! Not sure I heard that asked before!

@K-Zakk--I love this question & feedback!! Pretty funny!! 😀😁 I've received questions like "Can I get the item for free & can you deliver it?" "Can we go out after I pick up the item?" "If I have to drive to the location can I get the item for free?" "Is it still for sale?" (If it's posted😀😉). Can I get it cheaper, what about $1?"

I love this question!! You would be surprised the things people ask & say. Thank you so much for your response!!

I was once selling a large sofa and headboard, and got asked "can you ship this for $5?"
Yeah, sure let me slip it in a first class envelope 😂

OH! How could I forget!! Someone once offered to trade a GUN for my makeup!! Spoiler alert - trying to trade items that are listed on the prohibited items list will get an account removed.
