My dryer for sale

So I have this dryer for sale on Craigslist. I paid about $650 for it a little over a year ago and am asking $275. This morning, a guy calls and asks if I'll take $100 for the machine. I say, "No, but if you can get another $50 to $00, that would be okay, I guess." He and his wife come to the house, look at the machine and offer me $70. I say, "Bye". He thinks I mean..."buy" and starts to smile...I say,  "No, I mean goodbye. I won't take $70 for the dryer." He asks if I would take his original offer of $100 and I tell him I already told him, "No".
I just don't understand. Why would they drive all the way to my house, pulling a trailer, knowing I've already rejected the low offer and...offer even lower? 
I'd rather throw the dryer in the dump or give it away before selling it at that price. Are there scavengers (bottom feeders) out there trying to rip everyone off for a few dollars? I just don't get it.
