Comments => I am Mrs Mary Smith from London and i am interested in your (42" PC Bombproof Rigging) i came across for sale in www.dropzone.com , i will like you to let me know the recent condition and the last prices.
N.B. Please kindly let me know if there is any recent pic available.
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.

They send you money orders, e.g. via Western Union. They pay way more than the agreed price, later claiming some kind of mistake. Then they want you to reimburse the difference. If you do so you got ripped off because you soon will notice that the money order bounced
