I have been making a bit of money on ebay recently due to lack of time (new arrival to the family). I have been making a tidy sum working at it part time.
Anyway to cut a long story short, a couple of my listings had been ended buy BIN's (GREAT)?...
For example the last time it happened four days ago I sold a playstation PSP. It had only been listed for about 3 hours before the buy it now button was hit. I then get a message from the member saying that she is in the US working while her son is back home in Nigeria, and could I send the playstation there.
As soon as I read this I was very skeptical. Anyway I then get an email from (supposedly paypal) saying that the funds are on hold and have been takin from there account and will be realised once I post the item and then send them a tracking number.
I decided to go into my paypal and check and sure enough there was nothing in there from them.
I have had it before where in paypal it says that the payment is on hold and to post now (but it always says).
The member even said they had paid an extra £30 for insurance and to post it such a far distance.... LOL do these people never give up?
Neadless to say that I reported the member and they were soon an un registerd member.
Anyone else ever had this problem?
Even a friend of mine had a payment from emanual adyebiour (I mean come on)
Anyway I'm glad I checked, or they would of had me
Nigeria sort of gave them away (I'm not saying all Nigerians are scammers though) but the place has got history...
