Reached out to a member who posted a few days ago that he was buying GCs at a certain rate, he informed me that he was no longer buying at that rate, but a lower rate. Seemed a bit scammy to me, wondering if that happens often.



it can happen when the seller already bought from someone else etc.
also depends on the seller.. be careful when a seller advertises a too good to be true offer such as buying GCs for 97%...



Bestbuy GC, he posted for 97%, PM'ed me he was buying for 95%, then posted he was buying for 96%...

Exactly right. Has anyone else experienced or reported any issues with rileywiles23?



Its interesting you ask
I tried a few times with rileywiles23 but always was red flags and I felt uncomfortable dealing with him.
I had sold and bought with many others and never felt uncomfortable.
If your looking to sell BB try @sharabob a great buyer!

I've dealt with Riley before, he is an upstanding individual, and that's definitely not enough in my opinion to warrant trying to call someone out.
From the little bit I do know about Best Buy GC, I know how unstable the rates are, and a change in a couple of hours wouldn't be shady, let alone a few days later.
With that being said, @sharabob is equally outstanding as well.

as you can see from the thread he changed his offer many times. He has every right to do that I donít know why you call that scammy ?

I'll do my best to note what are facts, and which aspects are just my opinion - how things seem to me.

He posted 97%, didn't change it until after he told me that's no longer available (seems like he kept his rate high to generate interest), he told me he was offering 95%, then posted that he was offering 96% - again, seeming to post a higher rate than he actually was.

Note: There was an 8 hour gap in between the time he quoted me 95% and when he posted 96%, so maybe the prices do fluctuate that frequently, I'm not so experienced in this. That's why it's good to hear experiences from others.

as you can see from the thread he changed his offer many times. He has every right to do that I donít know why you call that scammy ?

I have no issue with him publicly changing his offer - I have an issue with him offering one rate publicly, and a different one when people contact him via PM to close a deal.

Riley is great. Never had a problem including BB GC. BB rates change like crazy, nothing shady here.

Amount of time between him telling you 95 and posting @ 96? Bestbuy is super volatile nowadays and rayes constantly change as he fills orders with a specific buyer who may be paying him more.

In my experience (and Ive been involves in dealings with him and seen many others with no issue) he's an extremely stand up guy.

I had a smooth transaction with @rileywiles23 a few months back.
120 characters? Hmm, I wonder what I could write with 64 characters. Boy, it's gonna be hard to use up 15 characters. W-

its not only about rates fluctuating, itís also about how much you need. Itís possible to need a certain amount at .97. Now Iím covered for that need. I can take unlimited at .95 but only pay higher if I have an immediate need

I hope this makes sense

Note: There was an 8 hour gap in between the time he quoted me 95% and when he posted 96%, so maybe the prices do fluctuate that frequently, I'm not so experienced in this. That's why it's good to hear experiences from others.

Maybe next time, instead of calling me out here, you pm me? You literally explained the story here.

Life is as good as you make it...

Yeah. 97% for bestbuy is too good to be true. Your right. What do I know. I'm just a guy who makes people uncomfortable.

I see no issue if he had posted here merely asking for guidance due to his lack of experience, instead of asking you, but should not have been accusatory in any fashion.
