Found 30th Oct 2010
ok so i want to buy this desire hd phone on ebay but the seller will only accept payment via bank transfer. He seems genuine and positive feedback but as he says he has had problems with paypal lately hes only accepting bank transfer. What card is the safest way to pay him, debit or credit????

Is this another of your "joke" threds?



er no, why would this be funny?

this is the description he says:

I have had 2 buyers who have wasted my time PLEASE ONLY buy if you intend on actualy purchasing this. Please do not even consider putting in a bid if you do not have a good history ...
£439 is the price with free delivery NO OFFERS


This is a BRAND NEW unopened upgrade on the T-MOBILE, this can easily be unlocked to all networks. I have had problem recently from Pay PAL so please only accpet this if you are happy pay via bank transfer, i will provide you the bank details which are Barclays, AS soon as I have recived the payment I will send out the phone ( For example if you make make the payment in to the bank account I will send out Friday if payment recieved before the listting is ended). AS you can see i have 100% feedback so you can be sure that this is totally safe many thanks. UK ONLY

If I was spending that much on a phone off Ebay then I'd want to pay in cash and collect it in person. Safest way.

Every auction MUST accept Paypal as a method of payment. If you won't use Paypal you can't use eBay.
