ive been in touch with this guy for a day now and he is gonna paypal me money. If i document everything as well as do delivery conf and insure the package am i safe? I have used paypal since 2002 and have had no problems but the fact that he is in west africa makes me a little nervous.
heres one of the emails
I saw your item placed on CRAIGSLIST and keen interested in the
immediate purchase of this unit i will be paying you a sum of $1075 and
will be making payment right away,i shall also be paying through
PAYPAL and so i will want to complete the transaction in a very timely
manner and shipped out immediately after you are been notify of the
payment Approval and pay $150 for the shipment via uspsexpress mail
service (EMS SPEEDPOST).if you can do this,email me with your name and
your paypal email so that i can proceed with payment right away.let me
quickly say that i will be sending this unit to West Africa and i will
be happy if you can end this auction and will also drop positive
feedback and do business with you.
I called payapl and told them this story and they said as long as you document everything and do delivery conf and insure. everything will be fine. but i am still nervous the address he sent me I googled and it came up with some fraud red flags. although it wasnt the exact address it was in the same area.
