Ebay a bit suspicious ????

A week ago i started a thread asking what to do about an ebayer who no longer wanted the item. Tonight i am asking if anyone thinks this buyer is ok. It is for a mobile phone. I have sold it again but this time to a zero feedback member and less than 30 days.
Does anyone know if i should be a bit suss about this or not so long as i get the payment ok.

Thanks

I sold a mobile to a new ebayer, took his time to pay but did after I put in an NPB.

Well you can never be too careful with all the scams going around on ebay and elsewhere. One thing to remember is we all had 0 feedback at one point :p all you can do is wait until you get paid, or don't as the case may be:roll:

I have noticed if the auction is active and you click the members id it gives their bid history so you can see if they've just bought 500 phones. May give you some idea?

i wouldnt worry if they pay we all have to start somewhere,usually some of these scammers drum up a bit of feedback b4 hand by buying these 1p e-books

Phones are the worst thing to buy or sell on ebay you get so many kids and scammers on there its unreal.

Don't really know why you should be suspicious of someone with 0 feedback, unless they haven't paid you within the specified time, as someone said we all started off on 0 at one point.

I know what your saying about starting at 0 feedback, i will wait for payment which should come through as a postal order (hopefully that is ok), get it paid in and unless i get message saying send it to Nigeria then i will assume it is ok. The only other thing i noticed is that the person doesnt use a name for the address on the details?????

Dont worry about the name being missing I have 2 verified addresses attached to my paypal account and one of those has my name missing from it for some reason and wont let me add it either!

Well when I sold mine it was to be paid by PO/cheque and when I read the send to address it was to somebody called Ebeneezer. You think you're suspicious, imagine how I acted at that point, I instantly thought: WIND UP:lol:

I always ask for some sort of id if feedback is below 5:landline number so that I can ring them and an address,if they do not come back with this I usually cancel thier bid.

They will either pay you or they wont, if they do then theres no problem. You won't send the item untill you have the money, so just wait and see if they pay you

I have come accross some right 'holes lately, be very careful.
Also look out for the fake bids-normally about £880 for a phone,
