Just a little rant

I have just started selling on gumtree and cannot believe how stupid sum people think we are, i put my phone up for sale and have already had 3 people asking me to post to Nigeria lol, for family or a shop etc. One woman has sent me 3 emails telling me how safe it is to post and use paypal, just replied and told her its sold and try and scam someone else lol

Im just thankful that i use this site so know of all the scams so thank u fellow HUKDers

That's why I stopped using gumtree totally! My partner nearly got scammed. Now I am using other safe sites like bonsoni.com

I let them send me fake paypal emails and thank them for the quick payment. I then tell them I will post out to them the next day. A f ew days later they start sending me their own version of paypals "t&c's" stating that I must confirm shipment etc asking me for tracking number. After a few more emails backwards and forth, i email them "thanks for the money and haha i scammed you i wont be sending you the phone/laptop/used condom"

At the end of it all, we both walk away thinking perhaps the same thing of one another. I like to keep things fair.
