OH MY GOSH THIS HAPPENED TO ME!! SHE SAID IT WAS FOR SOME LAB THING OR STUDY!!! i told her after like three weird exchanges to check goodwill! @heathernoel28 so glad im not alone! i thought she was trying to trick me into saying i was selling bad stuff at first and then she just kept asking "they look really worn, youre saying these dont have a strong odor?" weird!
I'm not saying I wouldn't sell some old shoes lol but I would never put shoes that smelled in my closet for a normal buyer. I thought I was being tricked so she could see if I was trying to sell gross shoes on here. @elliechristine it was for some weird lab project or that's what they claimed haha strange O_o
It's people with foot fetishes. I see it a lot on here even in the forums. I had someone message me about buying some knee socks but when they asked if I could wear them for a few days beforehand and not wash them before selling I got suspicious. I asked why and they said "an art project". I asked what the project was and they said "a mosaic of socks of different textures and colors" like wtf.
1. Who would make that
2. Why would you need worn out socks
3. Why would the socks need to stink
I promptly stopped messaging.
