Taking advantage of ignorance going to affect my karma?

I'm having trouble on what to do in situations where others people's stupidity is costing them a lot, and if i let it happen im gaining a lot (at little loss to them), but if i stop it (which i kind of feel is the right thing to do), i gain nothing at then no loss to them.


When people be idotic, for example if i buy something and the guy says itll be here sunday (and today is friday night and they dont deliver on a sunday), and i then say ok but if its not here by sunday then unfortunately it will be too late and i cant pay you for it (this has cost them shipping costs remember but they dont seem to care, they are also asking for payment after i recieve the item).

Actually let me tell you the full story.

i met a guy who wanted to sell me something, and he said he only wants bank transfer, i said no because its not secure for me, so he said he will send me the item first. He was super shady, wouldn't send me any better pictures of the item, and told me on a tuesday night that i should recieve the item from overseas by the next day (it arrived friday, today).i offered him 15 quid for the item, but when i asked him later how much, he said 10 quid. I said ok (was this wrong, considering i offered him higher earlier and maybe he didnt read it or maybe he is just not bright at all?)

Anyway, the item came - had a fault and he said bin it ill send you another one. The item is worth £10 and shipping costs £3.20. I managed to fix the item by taking it apart and doing some stuff to it.

So anyway, now he is sending me ANOTHER item (consider this has cost him too lots of this item, im only gonna pay him £10 in the end anyway, and shipping costs £3.20 on its own), and said it will arrive by sunday. I tried to stop him (not directly though, is this wrong?) i said I urge you not to send if i wont recieve it by sunday because im in a hurry to get it. Does he not know that nobody posts things on a sunday?

On paper, im right, and im playing the game of life - hes not bright so hes missing out. But morally, is what im doing correct? I feel like i should at least reinburse him the shipping costs after all this (even though none of this is at fault of my own, i should be losing out but im still winning???) or im just so confused. Like bruh you've almost spent the cost of the item on shipping and how do u not even know that they dont post things on a sunday?? I feel really bad for him. But hes gonna get ripped of so much more by other people than me who have no morals. I wish i could save him but theres nothing i can do..

He seems like a decent seller tbh which is rare.

Also you have to remember that on some sales platforms, sellers have to be extra courteous to keep up ratings & performance.

If you feel like it then go ahead and offer to cover the postage costs or make sure to buy from this seller again in future, also take time to thank them in a message.

I find compliments always help sellers & gives them a moral boost as they probably encounter rude customers pretty often.

It doesnt seem like a big deal but do what you feel is right in your heart.

its not about karma, its about ethics and honest trading.  be a good and honest person.  don't take advantage of other people's simplicity or trust.

i suggest you pay him the full amount for both items.  also give him some friendly advice that you feel he may get cheated from others- explain how, and then wish him well.

taking advantage of other peoples ignorance is evil

    • you really are a piece of work take your false propaganda and shove it ....  history from all sides indicates that what I said is true , the mughals and afghanis, and angrez /portguese were helped by brahmins , and stating that brahmins spread their knowledge to everyone is bogus , sanskrit is a secret language and used to control dissemination of knowledge to only those who were allowed to study/hear it . Over 80% of people who claim some link with Hindu faiths are NOT allowed to read/hear so called religious texts; how is that fair dissemination? The fact that people now can study sanskrit despite not being born Brahmin is purely out of a foreigner paying enough money to be taught then that person took that knowledge and writing his own books . It was never a altruistic sharing from scholar direct to the wide world Homeopathy was invented by the xperimentation of Christian Samuel Hahnneman in Germany , it has zero to do with Vedic anything .
    • Not just North Punjabi/Mirpuri Pakistani types in the UK, presumably the below article refers mainly to white males   Samaritans volunteers met vulnerable callers for sex https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-58057031 By Jennifer Meierhans BBC News Published 50 minutes ago Share IMAGE SOURCEGETTY IMAGES Samaritans says it has introduced new safeguarding measures after volunteers met vulnerable callers for sex. The charity, which offers a helpline to people in distress, will reportedly monitor calls in future to prevent inappropriate relationships. The Telegraph found incidents of middle-aged men using their position to meet up with female callers for sex. The charity told the BBC it did not dispute that a "very small number of safeguarding incidents" had occurred. Samaritans chief executive Julie Bentley said the "extremely rare" incidents had been identified and that swift and appropriate action had been taken. According to the Telegraph, a memo to volunteers said 44 serious incidents had occurred since 2017. Ms Bentley said Samaritans' 20,000 volunteers provided vital emotional support to anyone who is struggling, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. Volunteers on the charity's telephone service have answered more than 13 million calls in the four years from January 2017, she said. 'Robust investigation' "Running any national service on this scale means that, on extremely rare occasions, high standards are not always met and from the millions of calls answered, a very small number of safeguarding incidents were identified," said Ms Bentley. "Our robust investigation procedures meant these incidents were handled swiftly and appropriate action taken. "Any safeguarding matter is one too many and as such we review our practices on an ongoing basis and have introduced further measures as part of our commitment to delivering a consistently high-quality experience for our callers." Incidents are investigated by the charity's Serious Safeguarding Panel and are reported to the Charity Commission, Samaritans said.
    • I think this type of attitude helps keep Panjab economically backwards.  
    • This history seems true. It's not a new discovery, and this Zorowar Singh palit has a history and legacy in Bassi Pathaan that people there still acknowledge.  Info has been out about Zorowar Singh Palit since the late 60s at least, when Ganda Singh put out Sri Gursobha. That people here haven't heard of him here says more about their own piss poor study of history than anything else.  Plus this figure being from a tarkhan background would have motivated the usual jut casteists to jealously try and bury his memory, so that probably played a big part in his occlusion and hence so much ignorance about him. I'm not too familiar with Uhdoke, what makes you say the above about him?
