    sold my PS3 to a Nigerian

    yep you did hear correct

    no i didnt accept £300 extra and post it there

    he phoned me through my gumtree ad and came to my house

    he is over here studying and training with the merchant navy and is taking it back home

    very nice lad and paid full asking price and he didnt even want the two blu-rays i was selling with it

    i trust the money is to be spent on the car and did you charge fuel money to the cash m/c.

    I'm not implying you are in any way racist but this thread could so easily be read as so. Would you have posted it if you sold your ps3 to an englishman? Dont take offence cos im not having a dig just the way i read it.

    good to know that all the nigerians are scammers lol
    unfortunatly they have got a bad rep because of all the scams that are going on
    although i have noticed an increase in french email accounts being used for ebay scams ...

    Ive never used gumtree but i've heard so many bad things about it ... infact the first time i heard about gumtree was regarding a load of big money scams
