    Angry Ebay

    I have tried to sell my N70, on ebay 3 times, and i have listed it for a fourth time, the first three times, some one from Nigeria has bought it and want it for a present for a family member. I have heard these people are scammers. This is pissing me of big time, how can ebay allow these people to bid??
    Has this happened to anyone else?

    My mate had this happen to him. He sent them an extremely rude email and told them they had been reported to ebay. They didn't do it again and the buyer unsubscribed from ebay

    My items for sale always have this as the sellers instructions.

    Seller's payment instructions
    If you pay by personal cheque, the cheque must clear before the item is posted out.
    Due to my working pattern, i may not be able to post the item out the day the cheque clears, if this is the case i will contact you via e-mail and post it at the first day possible.
    I will not accept bids from people buying for relatives in Africa.
    If you have a feedback of less than 10 please contact me before bidding.

    "I will not accept bids from people buying for relatives in Africa. "

    That comes across as a little racist though?

    I had the same thing, they want to pay you extra to ship, but they ask for all YOUR bank details so they can sort it out

    uh......... I don't think so!
    I'm after another Coupe Turbo

    Somewhere in the options you can select to only sell to people in the UK, people that have not had a non paying bidder alert and people with negative feedback.

    isn't there an "offer to next highest bidder" option?

    i'd just throw in a "only sell to uk" clause, prolly won't stop them but worth a try.
