Remember:

  • DO NOT do business with anyone who offers to send you payment for a higher amount than your selling price with the understanding that you'll send back the balance.

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be acting on behalf of a "client" or another "customer".

  • Be suspicious of anyone claiming to be from Nigeria or West Africa

  • If you agree to accept a check payment, then do not send anything, gear or "change" before the check cleared. And be careful, if you manage to clear a fraudulent check then you may be liable for the damages if the bank finds out later. Make sure your bank authenticates the check.

  • If it sounds to good to be true, then it probably is.

Yep, this idiot asked about the price for the tunnel time I'm selling. Only thing is I'm selling my WS. I told him a price and that it would be difficult to ship. How heavy do you think tunnel time is? Crazy

And here he is again.........

He looked like a real buyer up until becoming very agitated when we told him that we couldn't accept a check for $1,000 more than the canopy so we can "pay for ahipping to the Bronx"
