  • 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 one of the emails he sent me

Hello Micheal,

Thank you for your quick response and I am happy that you have finally recieved the payment.You can box up the rig and get it ready because I will be ready to get them shipped as soon as possible.

So what I need from you now is for you to remove the $2000 for the rig and for you to send me the rest by western union so that I can arrange for the shipping.I have other equipments that I need to get shipped so I want to do them all together.If you remove $2000 from $5000 the remaining balance is $3000 and you can remove the western union charges from the money you are sending.Please send to the information below..please do get back to me with the 10 digit control number that will be giving to you at the western union..
