absolutely disgusted

In an online camera magazine they offered a prize of a Nikon Z50 camera and lens.

Unfortunately the winner stuck two fingers and the organisers and other members by offering it for sale on the same site.
Apart from being brain dead why enter a competiton if you don't want the prize?
there would have been so many olther members who could not afford such a camera and would have treasured it.
This kind of person makes me sick, disgusting is not a strong enough word for such a vile human being

I see nothing wrong in what the winner did. He/she saw an opportunity to get a (presumably) high value item for coppers, got it, and is offering it for presumably a less than retail price to people who would like one.

Where's the problem?

I REALLY don't see it.

I can't see the problem either, he won the competition fair and square, so what he does with the prize is nobody's business but his.

I have won things in the past and some of then I sold or donated for charity raffle prizes. I see nothing wrong with the winner's decision :no:

Rapists and child abusers are vile.

Re: absolutely disgusted

Perhaps he entered the competition never believing he would ever win, Iím sure some on here have done the same I know I have, and Iíve never won anything , he could be using the money he gets to donate to a good cause, or he may already have that particular camera and would use the money to buy a different camera or even some accessories for it, I really canít see a problem if he wants to sell his competition prize, he won it fair and square,..

Re: absolutely disgusted

Morally I can understand where you are coming from

However there was no cash prize alternative and if the winner, as in this case, decided cash was king, thats their prerogative
