In Fall 2021, a heartwarming story has popped up on Facebook where a user named Chris Blaze describes an interaction with a seller of a Samsung washer and dryer set. The seller goes by the name of Dave.

Chris had been looking around for an affordable washer and dryer set and stumbled across Dave’s ad.

Here’s his story

“We just went to buy a Samsung washer and dryer from a guy and he was asking $500. I told him I just had a kid and if he could take $400 I’d be really grateful,” the father said. “I got home hooked everything up and everything worked great.”

It was then that he received a message from Dave. “I got a message from him saying ‘check the dryer, a gift for the new baby,'” he wrote. Chris checked in the lint filter and found the $400 cash that he has paid Dave.
