Drifter said:I should actually be mowing the lawn now that he rain has subsided a bit here in Cape Town, but I'm so intrigued by this that it has taken over my consciousness for the immediate moment.
I'm trying to fill in the missing bits here and this is how the story is playing out in my mind:
OP: "Yo dude! Howz it hanging bro? You remember me? I bought two banana plugs from you in 2013?"

OP: "That thingamajig that you are selling, ... send it my way for a few days will ya. I want to play around with it for a few days, see what it sounds like. Yo catch my drift?"
Seller: "If you want it you must buy. It is R25k."
OP: "Come on bro, don't be that guy man. Dudes around here know me. I'm good for that. Tell you what, just to show you I've got the bling I'll give you the R25k, I'll take your thingamajig for a sweet test drive until I'm tired of it and when I send it back you refund me. Howz that for a sweet deal?. That tech yo peddling is overpriced in any case, brother will be doin' ya a favour ...."
Seller: "I think you are taking me for a ride here. Tell you what, I'll sell it to you. If you return it in the same condition I'll take it back. I have a few other potential buyers so to make good for the deal I may be losing I'll refund you 80%."
OP: "You serious dude??. You don't trust me? I then told you I'm as good as royalty here around these parts. Matter of fact, my middle name is "honest". I've been doing this gig with a few bro's around here for yonks and a day"
Seller: "I just cannot take a chance to send you a R25k item to test. If you want it, just buy it. End of the story"
OP: [grabbing his laptop and opening the browser] "dudes at AVForums will hear about this yo. That seller has a thing coming his way."
6. In addition I find it strange that I am not be ?trusted? but he is to be ?trusted? with me paying up front. I was willing to pay over the full amount. (see whatsapp) (Even though I am of the believe the unit is overpriced with about R6000. Of course everyone welcome to charge what they want, I respect that)
