Sold a phone, buyer who bought it only registered 2 days, no feedback, paid over the odds I think. Bound to be a scam as far as I can see, gonna get bricks back or a faulty phone and lose my money!
Want to cancel the sale and relist to only people with good feedback, but don't want a neg for it as it looks too much like a scam.
Asked ebay how to cancel without getting a neg as it looks like a scam, or how to sell it and ensure that I'm convered in case the buyer sends me back a broken phone.
Couple of responses from ebay:
"Contact the buyer first and make sure he responded well."
Although they couldn't tell me how that helps.
"Befriend him and see if you can call him and talk to him. I can give you his phone number if you want."
Become his friend?? How is that going to stop him scamming me???
"Usually a good buyer will reply to a seller's email."
So would a scammer surely???
"Another thing, to make sure you won't get scammed is to ship the item to a confirmed PayPal address."
That requirement went out about a year ago didn't it??
Any help appreciated!
