Yep, one of my local recyclers is like that. I think they assume that
anyone who appears to be knowledgeable about what they have is
immediately going to take their junk and make a fortune selling it. Tell
them that it's worthless in financial terms and they think you're lying;
tell them that you absolutely will not sell it on and they still think
you're lying. I haven't figured out a way of dealing with that class of
people yet :-(
