Yes, unfortunately.

But some people still fall for it

Should have set your buyer prefs to UK only, it doesn't stop it but does cut it down.

Any electronic i sell now i always have "immediate payment". That stops them fullly unless it's a hacked account with a lot in it.

I only sell to people with registered Nigerian accounts they often pay very quickly through Western Union money transfer and don't waste my time.

I think this is what they are trying to do,received an email asking how much postage do i want,so i sent back and said i was not sending and had reported to Ebay,then got email from paypal saying they had paid item and £30 postage on top,got up this morning to an email from scammer saying they had payed and would i send tracking no,i have emailed Paypal and i am just waiting to hear from them and have offered second chance to someone i think will pay:whistling::whistling:

wouldnt it have to spend 6 months in quarentine????? LOL

hehe yeah get a goat - cool

I certainly wouldn't send it unless I had taken the money out of my paypal account, closed my paypal account, chanegd address & spent the money in the pub.

We had loads of things like this when we sold my girlfriends mini on ebay.

Received an email from ebay saying buyer had put a not posted strike against me and it looked authentic but when i checked it was from the scammer also the paypal emails were all the scammer,these scum really know what they,re doing

If in the future ebay opens a Nigeria based operation, WOULDN'T WE HAVE FUN THEN!!!!!
