just sold a phone, nothing special just a cheap sony ericsson that was used in an emergency, the guy is asking for me to send it to his works address and wants it sent asap he needs it for thursday, the seller has had no ebay activity for a while, his english is poor and his ebay name seem possibly more suited to a girl, if i send this and it turns out to be a fraudster, will i loose the phone and the money

NONONO only send it to the address on the paypal invoice, you are right to smell a rat.

Edit it is, does it say verifeid? Covered by seller protection.


it says confirmed, so it should be okay?

If the address is verified on the paypal transaction and matches and says covered, then you will be ok if you have pics and imei etc.

If it was for over £150 send special, how much did it go for btw?


only £30, i just didnt want to be scammed

As long as when you log in it pp and look at the invoice and it says confirmed and that you are covered you will be covered, for INR.

£39 I think, not £150!!!

Watch they don't send you back a different phone, take photos of imei with your username on a piece of paper.
