An interesting WatchUSeek post that can help us all on the ‘Bay:
I am currently selling a fairly expensive watch (>$1000) on eBay as a Buy It Now item. Here is an email I received from a potential buyer with zero feedback:
It seems very suspicious. But I do not want to alienate a genuine customer. What kind of questions might I ask to make sure this is not a scam? Is a confirmed Paypal account enough?
(I should specify that in my listing I state that I ship CONUS/Canada only)
Umm…. yes. That’s a massive scam and it’s why I seriously doubt I’ll be using eBay anymore. I tried to sell a phone last month and I got four separate winning bidders from Nigeria and one from Canada when I said I’d only ship to the US. eBay, I’m afraid to say, is now useless.
Is this an eBay scam? [Watchuseek Watch Forums]
