I hate eBay!!

Do ebay scammers think were stupid? I listed my laptop on ebay after it didnt sell here, within 50 mins it had been brought by someone who had only been a registered member for 15 mins and their contact number is fake! They requested a total and sent the following message -

Hello,
I'm glad that am the winning bidder of your eBay item,i would like to know the present condition of the item and get back to me soon with your PayPal e-mail for me to carry out the payment through PayPal as soon as possible today.
Please reply to my e-mail with the invoice.

I dont know why i bother with ebay sometimes!!

Well you could get a genuine contact number for nowt via a free PAYG sim. Street name / location / no number is more of a problem I guess. Think I am missing the scam though - if you send recorded or special delivery and they pay with paypal surely the only scam is to claim non delivery - and you have proof of delivery......

But who in their right mind would risk it esp considering the possible hassle with paypal etc. I know i wouldnt

I hate scammers :(

Love it when they try and scam you on Gumtree. I love messing them around. Then telling them to f*** off :) Although it does waste my time :(

Anyone thought about sending them a virus?

I love how it was listed as boxed and sealed very clearly in the listing yet when they requested total the message asks about the condition!!

No sadly, best of luck though.

For those more seasoned ebayers - if i relist the item tonight will i get the fees etc back from the first one?
#16
Anyone?

As far as I know, you can only get the fees refunded if you come to a mutual agreement with the buyer no to proceed with the transaction.

Might be worth ringing eBay up on their contact phone number (or use Live chat). I would have thought they could cancel the transaction and refund your fees manually...
