Comments => I am using this medium to notify you of my interest in purchasing your item which i will like to ask some few question,
still available for sale ? What is the asking price ? What is the condition? Has this involved in any damage before? do i need to repair?
I would like to pay using PayPal,After payments has been made i will arrange for pick up of the item as soon as possible,will you let my pick-up agent to come to you house for the pick up? Because i don't want you to worry yourself about the shipment.
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 wish I had seen this before I was scammed By him/her! Jeffyrichard@rediff.com contacted me about a boat I am selling online and I sent 600.00 through Western Union and tried to stop payment but the money had already been picked up. He spoofed a paypal page and it said the payment for the boat was pending a copy of the western union tranfer info. it was sent to "Cynthia Brown" I asked WU if I had any recourse in getting back my money and they basically said I was screwed. I filed a report with local law enforcement and online with IC3.com but I do not know where to go from here or if there is anything that I can do. His/her email IP shows it was from India
