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.

I just about got taken from this @#$%^#....he's using the classic overage of funds to be forwarded via western union or money gram to a 'company' called Pellie Shipping (pellieshipping@hotmail.com) with an international number +447031928997 and claiming England but under the covers an agent was trying to forward funds to Nigeria. Names used: Waye Lewis, Wayne Robinson, agents-James Williams of Philly, PA and John England of Springfield, MO.
