As i sell phones on ebay i come across all sorts of scammers
Recently, ive seen a new type of scam and im sure its linked to frauds on forums.
People will low feedback message me saying i am very interested in the product etc etc
please send a picture with a certain username or just a picture to a certain email address.
Obviously, most wont but with the amount of sellers they only need one person who will.
the person will send a message please take a picture of your google nexus phone which i am interested in with the username shambles, they claim its proof that you have the item.
Then theyll ask you to email it to their hotmail gmal etc account.
Obviously theyll use that elsewhere to try and scam someone.
So just a heads up really, if you are going to buy something of someone with low feedback on any forum do take precautions and pictures are not always what they seem.
I would recommend to ask them to send more pictures after posting initial ones with something totally random in the picture like an apple or a cd or something.
Just be wary.
