Photo Price Requests From The Same Guy

Fri Apr 13, 2001 12:40 am

Hi all,

Just curious, I have received lots of e-mails with the following text:

> Dear George
> Do You Sell A Slide Of Your Photo
> Emirates Airliners 747-47U ID 148706? If So
> Quote Price. please Right Back. My
> E Mail Address Doesn't Work.
> You Can Reach Me By Mail
> My Address Is.................

and of course his address. Are there other people with the same? have you ever sell a photo or slide to this person? I wrote him my prices a few months ago and I didn't hear anything from him. On this moment he starts sending these mails again.

Regards, George Polfliet

Hi George,

I have received 5 individual e-mail message exactly like that one in the past 3 days but I haven't responded yet. If I recall all of mine were for BA 777's.

Cheers,
Felix

Yesterday I received that exact message from the same person. As I don't shot slides I already have the letter ready to send him explaining but now that you're telling this guy doesn't reply, I'm going to think twice before going to the Mail Office.
This was the photo he asked

I got the same e-mail a few months ago, and then just received the exact same e-mail today from the same guy too. I just thought it is a little "strange" for someone to write the same e-mail about his e-mail address being down, since I would think that he would be able to get another e-mail address if one address isn't working, since there are so many free e-mail services available. Also, I didn't write to him with my prices since he was asking for slides, and I only shoot prints. The shot that he was interested in is this one:

I thought about responding but perhaps I will not.

While we are on the subject I'm curious what you might typically charge when selling an average slide to an individual? I'm talking about those depicting ordinary planes in relatively standard type approach or departure shots. An example would be something like:

The film used would be Sensia II ISO100 and Provia 100F. I've had some requests from somebody else and I'm not really sure what would be the going rate? I don't want to give them away but I also don't want to charge too much. Any comments for prices in Canadian or US dollars?

Thanks,
Felix

Sounds very fishy George. His email address doesn't work? How did he email you? Sounds too fishy, I think you should forget about it.

Kind regards.

I just got that e-mail two minutes ago. What makes it sound even more fishy is how on earth did he send the bloody e-mail if his addres doesn't work

I got a email from someone, dunno if it was him who wanted to buy an enlarged version of one of my pics. He's not responding anymore unless he hasn't been on much.

He hit me as well....I attempted to e-mail him,but it was indeed returned. He is probably just some kid in Ohio looking for some cheap pics.

I had him request about 10 times about 4 months back. Haven't heard from him since. Obviously ignoring him works.

Until now, he'll probably read this thread and send it again  Smile/happy/getting dizzy

Maybe Johan can have his account revoked

I've gotten 20+ of his emails, 15 of them since Monday. I'm tempted to send him a letter saying a slide costs $5000 dollars.

That would shut him up. But the delete button works nicely.

I have had a heap from him lately, and it had been a long time since I had got an e-mail from him. It would be perhaps something for Johan to pursue because:-

a) you can't write back to him
b) ignoring him doesn't work
c) he is VERY annoying

If I received no further requests from him I really don't think I'd mind!

The same guy asked us about a pic of a Singapore Cargo 747 at FRA. It also sounded strange to me, that he wrote, his e-mail isn't running - because he can get another adress all over the web.

So I didn't write an answer to him. I also think he is just a stamp collector...

And what does the subject "same" stand for? Because he sends the SAME annoying mails to all of us. And "Please right back" is supposed to mean "please WRITE back"?
And why doesn't his email ever work? How's this possible?
I've had requests from him for more than a year...
Seems to be such a weirdo...

I got two mails from him last week. Both were regarding the "same"  Smile BA B737!

I don't write him back because I see no sense in paying $0.5 for a letter to him asking for $2 (average collector price) for a single slide and need a second letter sending the slide which costs another $1.5! So there is no profit in it!

Rgds,
Torben
