Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: Hey

BeastJohn1: hey

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: Can I help you?

BeastJohn1: you still selling the stormy dixie?

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: yep

BeastJohn1: would you take 11k pure for it?

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: I declined a 13 key pure earlier today

BeastJohn1: how come?

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: I was looking for 14 keys

BeastJohn1: well I mean you have been "quick"selling it for 3 weeks

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: I haven't

BeastJohn1: I thought quickselling was supposed to be... whats the word?

BeastJohn1: quick

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: I've been selling it for 3 weeks

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: I lowered the price 2 days ago

BeastJohn1: mm I see

BeastJohn1: did you screenshot the 13k offer you declined?

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: No

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: why would I?

BeastJohn1: right

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: You don't believe me?

BeastJohn1: so thats not a valid argument

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: do you screenshot every declined trade?

BeastJohn1: if its a declined trade you could screenshot it right now

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: I could

BeastJohn1: alright let me see it

BeastJohn1: is there a problem?

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: Why do you care about my past offers?

BeastJohn1: how come there are 3 faded out keys in that trade offer?

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: I thought that would be fairly obvious

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: it's because he no longer has the keys

BeastJohn1: exactly

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: exactly what?

BeastJohn1: so that is the reason you declined it

BeastJohn1: because he no longer has the keys

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: Then it would say "items no longer in inventory" or something like that

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: By the way, you are aware that what you are doing at the moment is called sharking right?

BeastJohn1: actually you are listing it as a "quicksell" meaning lower offers are acceptable

BeastJohn1: so no I am not sharking right now

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: You're trying to degrade the price of my item

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: Which is what sharking is

BeastJohn1: no I am trying to give you a quicksell offer

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: Well, I'm quickselling it for 14 keys

BeastJohn1: you are viewing it as "sharking"

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: Offering completely lowballs is not sharking

BeastJohn1: its selling for 13 keys  By the way, you are aware that what you are doing at the moment is called sharking right?

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: it's a dick move, but it's not sharking

Detective Inspector Sergeant Bo: saying that my item is worth what your offering, is sharking

 

Was he sharking or am I just overreacting?

Sharking is basically trying to rip someone off through the process of manipulation.

Really, he's just making excuses to be a douchebag and get his way, buying your unusual for 11 keys. From the chat, it's not really sharking, it's called "being an idiot".

 

However, you are overreacting a tiny bit. Just don't argue with an idiot and remove him as quickly as possible and it's all fine.

It's not sharking.  Just a profit whore.  An example of sharking would be Guns getting the PE COTOK for an Atomic Space Mann.  For reference sharking is paying a very small percentage of the actual price, such as getting a 100 key item for 5 keys.

If you need to quicksell something, find R+ubi or Julia also pay quite decent (might depend on hats though)
