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.
Here's another scam from Eugene37, trying to scam me out of my container. Eugene37 needs to be very careful who he scams in the future. Scam the wrong person and they might come after him with, say, an Axe... flycurt

That dude tried to pull some shit on me. I told him the price for the canopy has gone up because the serial # on the canopy was traced and found to be the one George Bush jumped for his 60th birthday. I haven't heard from him since.
