  1. I just listed my first item for sale on Ebay yesterday. I got a message this morning from someone saying this. First off, this user must of just registered this morning. I don't even accept Money Gram and he wants me to give him my address?? Plus, he's offering to pay 380$ which is double the value of the item I'm selling. This has scam written all over it, thank goodness I'm not gulliable. :smile:
    My question is, should I even bother sending a message back?

    Here is the message:

  2. I say don't respond and report it to eBay. Really smells like a scam.
  3. Agreed- a Scam for sure- you can always tell- Grammar is always off..
  4. I agree, looks like a scam. I wouldn't respond.
  5. report it to ebay, he will send you a fake money gram and how to have the product before you find out its fake.

    :censor: seems they have hacked into another account:rant:

  6. I agree, it's a scam. :yes: I had a similar one.

    Don't respond and report it to eBay.
  7. Thank you! That's what I thought, just wanted to double check since I'm new to Ebay
  8. no longer a registered user! lol. Ebay is scary. I got an email on something I bid over $400 for (and lost) and someone emailed me asking if I wanted to buy it for that price because the winner backed out. It was so obviously not the seller! What jerks. I emailed them back and said no thanks scammer!
  9. Yes Ebay is very scary! Especially this being my first time selling. It's pathetic people have nothing better to do with their lives then to scam people. :censor:
  10. Run far and fast!!!!!!!!!!!
  11. Report it to eBay. Not only is it AGAINST eBay policy to offer sellers to do transactions offline, this dude has SCAMMER stamped on his forehead...
  12. Definitely a scam, i received two offers like this over craigslist.

    They send you a fake money order... sometimes even a money order over email... fake fake fake!

    Report the user.
  13. ACK! I can't believe that. Yes, run fast girl... I am getting so fed up with people preying on someone else's trust on Ebay:censor:
  14. ooh, i get those ALL the time through craigslist. I didnt even know they were stupid enough to try that via Ebay!
  15. This is commonly known as the Nigerian scam. Most of the time they want you to ship to africa to a son, niece, whatever. Don't respond, account is probably hacked!
