Paypal Scam, Seller Be Aware !

Recommended Posts

Guys just to let you know a form of scam performed by con artist.

 

As you may know I am selling a R10 MK2 on Gunstar and a guy named stephen plate contacted me to buy the rifle. He will not give me his phone number and he want me to accept payment in paypal. I dont have problem taking payment with paypal but the buyer insists on getting his friend to pick up the rifle. Now here comes the problem! If you, the seller, can not provide proof of delivery, you will be screwed by paypal, because the fund can be reversed!!! Google this type of scam, it's not new.

 

Here is the conversation I had with this con man:

You know, I really hate to see people like you trying to con others, your trick is too old, paypal can reverse money if the seller cant obtain a proof of delivery. Also, air rifle is not covered by paypal's terms and conditions. You will be reported.

Blimey. What's the odds on that? Being scammed as a buyer and nearly scammed as a seller in the same week? I'd buy a lottery ticket if I was you. :D

      Frodo is a 3 year old much loved staff/terrier.. He has bounds of energy, in fact too much energy and is getting too boisterous for our much older staff.

      He was brought in to our home by error as a pup and we just cant give him the time/attention he needs because of work commitments.

      would ideally suit a more active life than what we can provide for him..A great guard dog because of his alertness..
      Not worked but he is game when out walking in the fields

      Clean,strong, chipped, friendly, home/farm/working dog.

      Chester location
