    who pm'ed u

    ill confirm

    against rules anyway

    they need ur paypal mail address in oder to send funds to your paypal account

    it depends if the person is trying to scam you.. or the person might just want to purchase the voucher. but usually to have any ground to stand on incase of a scammer you have to do the deal in the thread so not sure if it went wrong what you could do with it being in private...

    well, if they're a long standing member with good feedback- i wouldn't expect it to be a dodgy thing...

    its against the rules on here to deal by pm. so i'd report the guy to a mod.

    however whats the difference between selling a top up voucher and box live points/ 12 months codes etc?

    They could spam your Email address, but i doubt anything else.

    giving out your email is standard procedure if you want someone else to send you money via paypal, so no its not dodgy that someone is asking for it. thats all they need though so as long as they dont ask for any other details theres nothing to worry about.

    but dealing via pm is very naughty and should never be considered
