Listed a PSP 3 days ago, was bought within a hour and from a new user who then asks me for my email address "to make payment" and checking the condition, they have the usual username like 123456 on the end, so I knew they were a scammer, luckily they were already banned by the time I logged on so got my fees back and relisted, same thing happens but takes 2 days to "sell" and the user cant even spell English names right i.e was like Dorathy, and the same thing happens, this time I inform Ebay and get my fees back.

Relisted last night and again a new user buys it and asks me condition and asks me to send to Nigeria.

How stupid do they think I am? I even think its the same person each time since they are all new id's and all buy psps only.

why not stick it on as buy it now and immediate payment?
#2
Are you blocking international buyers ?
#3
Block international bidders and only state you will send to UK only.
You should be able to change the option for people with less than however many feedback can't bid.
You should also make a comment on my community thread on FO.LK :thumbsup:

Was about to lol, I wasnt sure how to set the feedback to be a certain amount, I know how to not list to abroad but not how to stop them buying(though I guess its something in account)

Whats the point if they don't pay you will never send it to them.... or am I mis-understanding?

Do you mean why is it annoying? basically because whatever watchers or genuine interest you had in item has been lost because they think item is sold, and often you have to wait a few days till the person is banned to get fees back before relisting and just causes problems.

They do pay..... and then a few days later, the money is taken back by Paypal as a stolen card is used and you never see your goods again.

Right, but what benefit is it to the scammers ?
#15
Sorry I hadn't realised that paypal can take it back after it had been paid.
