Why people avoid sending to Nigeria?

My bid listing has been sold to Nigeria user on Ebay and zero rating tonight.
I mostly see people restricted with Nigeria user.
Why people avoid sending their product to Nigeria?
Any recommend, I would be glad.
Thanks

Because they're almost invariably a scam. They hope you'll send the item before getting payment, then they won't pay. So many people have refused and then had to relist the item that word has gotten around the community (except for you perhaps).

Or they pay via harvested credit cards or other illegal means which always means you'll find the money being clawed back from you by paypal or your bank several months later, by which time you've sent the goods and forgotten all about the transaction.

yh, the scam you, or as soon as you say, item sent, they cancel the payment

If there was a genuine person from Nigeria using Ebay I pity them :giggle:

I have no problems dealing with Nigeria, as long as they have an IDR and Form M (they know the score) then everything goes through with no problems. Payments are always up front and cleared before goods are dispatched. I even shipped a Lexus RX down there and everything was just fine.

As long as you know what to ask them for and they are genuine you will have no problems with them and to be honest they are the people who have most disposable 'cash' to use. Just avoid the scammers :whistling:

The Nigerian Scammer problem is so widespread and has been going on for such a long time that the Nigerian Government has a penal code numbered 419 to deal with it. If you google you'll find lots of 419 anti scam sites, some of which are very amusing in how they reversed the scams and have had the scammers doing ridiculous things, like the Monty Python dead parrot sketch ;-) Additionally you'll probably have had some emails telling you that you've won a fortune or that some bank official happens to have access to a dead dictators millions and YOU can share in the loot. All you need to do is send all your bank details, hhhhmmm let me think about that one! Several people on this forum have been fortunate winners.

Despite Crazy1's experiences thats the exception, not the rule.

True, but like any transaction with anyone you don't know, trust does not come into the equation, even if you have been dealing with them for 10 years :w00t:

Do share your wisdom, what is this Form M and IDR? I wouldn't trust anyone from Nigeria with my home address let alone a Form M or IDR :p
#15
Thanks for your help.
I think I'll relist my item.
I dont think it's worth risking.
#16
If you wait a few days you can relist for free once the user has been chucked off Ebay

Ahhh but that's half the battle, if he pays (irrespective of the means by which he does so) then eBay will see it as a valid transaction and won't do anything.

If there's one thing I've learned, it's that eBay cares as much about its customers as a dog does its fleas........as long as they get their fees, they're oblivious to anything and everything.

Not if they are NARU'd after people email them

I am not nigerean. I am english. It is called slang. I use abbreveated words and slang. Anyway, whats so bad about being nigerean??

Just for you;

Dey Means They
Sai Means Say
Sum Means Some

Even a 7year old child can work that out, IT does not matter about the spelling as long as the first and last letters are the same.

:whistling:
#21
But for the sake of one extra letter so people can make sense of it...

I mean I'm 22 and had no idea what that was meant to say - so don't tell me a kiddie would!
#22
Nigerian scammers, priceless
#23
Scammers, someone offered me £250 for a broken phone on ebay once. I found out that it was a scam, reported him/her to ebay, and dont send to nigeria anymore.

I'm not correcting your spelling, but the first and last letters are different aren't they? I don't understand how your analogy is relevant to the examples you've used.:thinking:

Why?

Do you (wrongly) believe it affords you a certain level of street credibility?

Let me take a wild guess.........you use your mobile phone for texting quite a lot don't you?

I dread to think what the English language is going to look and sound like in 30 years.

Surely you mean "Nigerian"?:?

So if "IT does not matter about the spelling as long as the first and last letters are the same" then I suppose I can call you an utter wonkar and get away with it:p

i think ( fink ,,,,,,,,,,,,,, ) your all mad , if you have a scammer play with them , do all you can to drive them insane , offer all the info they will ever need but get it slightly wrong , an example is i live at say 56 and yet they knocked number 57 down to make flats , you sir/madam now have an address , phone number ? no probes , 61001 is my local police stations number and im happy to pass that along , ok the rules of the game

play along as long as you can

except everything they say as the very word of god

you are desparate to hand over your details ,,, desparate ,,,,, you really want that princes millions and your happy to hand over anything they need

when theres a problem ( there end ) say its in the post , make anything up that you can but pleaseeeeeeee mr con-man i want to send you money , honest

involve your family to spread info around , lets keep our african friend busy with all the info
#32
forgot to say

if you think its a scam ( yes it is ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,) then play along but relist and sell it to someone else , worst he can do is leave bad feedback and you can return the same , if it turns out not to be a scam then you can withdraw quickly , he will have the length of the auction to come up with secure funds , its that or lets play the african lottery of will or wont he pay , i get to go first , i say he wont
#33
I "sold" my Laptop the other week on Ebay...Supprisingly enough a nigerian with no feedback ruined the auction by bidding £3,500 30min before the end.

As ebay saw this as a "valid" transaction with tried charging me £45 for the fees!
#34
I cant beleive it. I received a fake PayPal email that say like " It has been paid to my account" with PayPal logo as well. It looks almost real to me. So, I have to relist it again. they are wasting my time. not good at all :x
