I've got a camera on sale on amazon marketplace and just had an email through from amazon to say it's been sold.
Te actual email address looks genuine but on reading through the email the buyers addres is from the uk but the delivery address is surprise, surprise..nigeria.
I've checked my amazon account and it doesn't say the item has sold, but as i said the email addy and the actual email look genuine.
I have now just received the following email from the suppposed buyer:
How are you doing? hope you're fine. i just want to inform you that i have check-out for you item through amazon.co.uk, i believe amazon would confirm this to you because i want the item to be posted today, am sending this item as a gift to my father and i don't want you to write the content on the package because it is expected to be a surprise gift.
I have promised that i am going to surprise him on his birthday and i don't want to disappoint him this time when his birthday is around the corner. I just want to know if you would be able to post today.
i will be awaiting your reply as soon as possible concerning the shipping details. thanks
have they hacked someones account? is there a contact number for amazon that deals with this sort of stuff.
Obviously i am not going to send the camera as it looks very dodgy.
