Click here to read more about these kind of scams.

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.

UNACCEPTABLE!!!!! As stated...I will only accept cashier's check or money order from a magor US bank in the exact amount of purchase or Paypal. I am finding that shipping to the UK with FedEx is about $150. If you wish to use a money order, send me $1050 and once my bank clears it I will ship the canopy. You will have to negotiate payment from your client seperately.

Are you wanting to buy it?
Where will it ship to?
What is your method of payment? I will only accept cashier's check or money order from a magor US bank in the exact amount of purchase or Paypal.
Due to your dz.com profile being only a few days old and void of any info, I am leery of your interest. Something screams SCAM to me. Please make me feel more confident.

Live For Him,
Alex

Howdy,
I am firm on the price of $900, however I will negotiate with shipping. I
will split shipping to anywhere in the lower 48. I took more pictures to
show the label, the new lines, and 2 of the the repair patch (one to show
the size of it and one close up). The pic of the new lines also shows the
slinks I'm throwing in.


Live For Him,
Alex
