    Scam or not?

    Hi,
    Just wanted a bit of advice, and i know it is a scam but cant really see the angle and i def wouldnt do it anyway but wanted to see what other people thought...
    I have put up on gumtree my bn mobile tocco lite for saleand have had 2 replies from people overseas who wanted to pay through paypal and obv for me to send it too them. The first was from Nigeria and i looked into postage but RM dont insure higher than £39 and dont track out of the uk so i declined to sell. The most recent offered £50 more than i asked for and also to pay through paypal - i havent replied as they also stated overseas with a similar story, buying for girlfriend etc.
    Just wondered if anyone has had similar exp?
    Cheers

    Thousands of people have similar experinces,it is a scam.

    They usually send you a fake Paypal payment email etc and hope you'll think they have paid and send it off.

    wish people would use more common sense

    What bout the address linked with credit card though as its paypal? Though Prob easier in some places though huh?

    Banned

    Look - it's a scam ok?

    It couldn't be a clearer scam if the paypal email address was [email protected]

    This is one of the reasons why computer use should be means and intelligence tested.
