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 was just about to make the payments when I had a little problem with the Picking-Up Agent of the PD Vengeance 120 ,Has i explained to you earlier that I am currently on sea and I am buying the PD Vengeance 120 for my dad,I tried to book a Pick-up with my shipping agent,But they asked me to Pay first before they can made the Booking, and they only Accept Western Union Money Transfer for their payment's and they don't accept PayPal or bank Transfer and I tried to send the Money Online but i could not and I am on sea and there is no way i can find a Western Union Agent to make the transfer to my Pick-up agent,So i wanted to ask if it was okay for me to include my Pick-up agent's fees in the payment's I am about to send through PayPal,my pick up agent charged is 210 plus Insurance and some other document for the pick-up,please can i include their money in the payments I want to send then after i have made the payments you will help me forward the 210 to my pick up agent through Western Union Money Transfer,this I would have done myself and not bother you but for the fact that I am currently on sea, so after I have made the payments you will help me send 210 to my pick up agent through western union money transfer,I just wanted to seek your consent before going ahead with the payments,I will more than appreciate if you mail me back, and I will be made the payments shortly......Awaiting your response soonest

PS:the shipping company's Head quarters is in England and any pick up fees to be paid is sent to their head quarters by the payee, so the money for pick up will be sent to their head quarters in England through western union money transfer(this can be done from any post office) or you can do it online at www.westernunion.com
