    Do you think I should ignore it?
     
  2. were you the underbidder?

    Never accept any second chance offers without confirming with the seller first. I can't tell you how many people have emailed me asking if I've sent them a second chance offer when I haven't. eBayers who were like 3rd or 4th highest bidders even.:shrugs:
     
  3. is it in your messgaes in your eBay account?

    I need to move this to the eBay Forum since it's more of an eBay topic rather than Chanel. . .
     
  4. I am the underbidder. I'm actually the 3rd highest bidder. After reading what you just wrote , I completely looses confident in accepting the second offer. Ebay is indeed a scary trading place. Thank you again smoothoprter for your advice.
     
  5. Opps! Sorry I had it in the wrong forum. Thanks Swanky mama for moving this to the ebay forum. Sorry my explanation wasn't detail enough. I received the message from my personal email acct. There's no messages in my ebay mailbox. I think this might be a scammed.
     
  6. Scam if its not in your ebay messaging system.
     
  7. Definitely a scam if they are asking you to email them directly for payment. Plus there are several grammatical errors in the text. Forward the email to eBay: spoof@ebay.com.
     
  8. Thanks everyone for your reply. I knew I came to the right place seeking for advices before jumping into conclusion! You ladies have been wonderful! Thanks again!
     
  9. definitely a scam
     
  10. Thank you everyone. I had reported this to ebay!
