    smell a rat on a ebay sale

    just sold a phone, nothing special just a cheap sony ericsson that was used in an emergency, the guy is asking for me to send it to his works address and wants it sent asap he needs it for thursday, the seller has had no ebay activity for a while, his english is poor and his ebay name seem possibly more suited to a girl, if i send this and it turns out to be a fraudster, will i loose the phone and the money

    i am sending it recorded, just checked his address and it is confirmed on paypal

    Only send it to the paypal address.

    if you are worried at all about the sale just make sure you abide by all the ebay rules then you will be fully protected.only send it to the address his ebay/paypal is authorised by.

    As long as when you log in it pp and look at the invoice and it says confirmed and that you are covered you will be covered, for INR.

    £39 I think, not £150!!!

    Watch they don't send you back a different phone, take photos of imei with your username on a piece of paper.
