    A bit concerned with EBAY!

    Hello,

    Im currently selling my PSP on ebay and Ive had to relist it once already beacause of non-payments. The 1st timed seemed a bit dodgy as the guy wanted me to send it to America not sure why he didnt just buy one from there. Also he had no feedback what so ever.

    Anyway they didnt pay so ive re-listed and now a guy from nigeria wants it, hes paid the buy it now price of £80 and added an extra £40 for postage all via paypal. Again he has had no feedback and the user names are pretty much the same format, they are a first and second name then three numbers.

    I could be jumping to conclusions but seems a bit off to me, especially with all the dodgy stuff happening with nigerian bank transfers etc!

    Any help much appreciated
    Thanks in advance Rob

    Yeah don't touch nigeria, leave it a few weeks bet you the payment gets reversed...

    Friend at work was selling a phone on Ebay and got loads of emails from scammers - she even got fake emails from paypal saying she had money transferred into her paypal account (no funds there when she checked) and from paypal's fraud squad claiming she had to send the item then provide a copy of proof of postage before they would release the funds. So many dodgy scams goin on at the moment - just refuse to send anything outside uk.

    Sounds like a scam. Now I always put 'Will not ship outside UK' as I had someone in Germany try to pull a dodgey one saying the item hadnt arrived. I refused to refund them & my Paypal account was frozen for months, which was detrimental to other things I was doing at the time, caused me loads of grief & loss of business.
