    Hmmm, it'll be interesting to see what price they list it for on gumtree...

    Their response was overly harsh & emotional. They could have easily stated that they weren't able to sell it at that price and advise you what kind of figure they were expecting. Sheesh!

    What a lunatic!! I would probably just ignore it. Now that you have shamed her on here and have us all on your side - you have the moral victory! No point starting something with someone who is clearly a few sandwiches short of a picnic basket.

    Offer her a snickers. However in some cases that is not well received or so I've heard.

    Bwahahaha, it'd be funny just to see the reaction.

    Ha ha ha ha ha love it!

    Thanks ladies for your responses, I did consider that perhaps they were just really struggling, but its good to know I'm not the only one who thinks that was a little uncalled for. I was also a little worried that maybe I had done the wrong thing by offering so little for it, but the more I think about it I think it was a fair enough start.

    Whoa how rude. I've done the same once on eBay, something hadn't sold so I offered the initial bid and they said don't worry come take it for free.

    I've also had someone contact me when something hadn't sold and offered me well under what I'd put as a starting bid. I still politely responded with effectively thanks but no thanks.

    Is it possible that her emails have been crossed? It seems like a bizarre response? Can't help but give the benefit of doubt. My response would be 'Not sure if that response was in relation to my offer but if it was, I don't think I'm interested after all'.

    I wouldn't send anything crankier as i wouldn't want to get into an email argument. I've sold loads of things on Gumtree & you truly do get stupid bids, as much as I'm tempted to write back 'are you serious' I usually just state the basis of my price point.
