You know what really sucks?
« on: October 20, 2017, 01:43:32 AM »
....finding out your boyfriend tried to get you a copy of your holy grail record (original pressing of Achtung Baby...you almost never come across those here in the States) for your birthday only to be ripped off by a UK Discogs seller who said he shipped the record but never did and ripped off dozens of other people.  :-\

It's almost like that record is never meant to be in my possession....the stars just aren't aligning.

Yes, I know I could buy the record myself from eBay, but there's no thrill in that--I either want to find it in a record shop while looking through records OR be gifted it.

On the plus side, I now know the boyfriend is a keeper (he's not really a U2 fan but puts up with my fandom), so there's that.  ;)

That sucks. I have nothing but good transactions on Discogs. Many of the vinyl i bought end up being way better condition than i expected. And i have never been conned by any seller. Hope you get what your looking for soon enough

Yeah, that is the weird thing about it. The seller had good feedback on the site and suddenly--for whatever reason--stopped fulfilling his/her orders. I know Discogs is generally very trustworthy, just a shame there are bad sellers on there (like any site I guess).
