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.

Just tried the same scam with me in regards to my Cookie Atomic Helmet. I also sent him additional pictures without watermarks of my helmet. Be aware if these surface again in the classifieds.

This guy is e-mailing me right now about my camera helmet. I've told him that I need his address so I can quote him shipping. He keeps coming back wanting my full name, home address and phone number. I have a feeling this guy is fishing for bank info.

Guys also emailing me after I told him I would only accept PayPal from an overseas buyer. Just sent a pm to coreyangel to see if it's the same email. Responded to my classified ad about my camera helmet also, sellers beware he's phishing for personal information.
