I'm new to this, and have just posted on here and Gumtree my Powerbook, which simply needs a new battery.
It immediately received a response from someone who wants it posting to a 'cousin', in Nigeria.
Alarm bells of course...
I've read a handful of article about these scams, fake PayPal accounts/emails etc, resulting in sellers losing their item and money they've paid for postage/courier.
Thing is, this buyer wants to put the payment, including postage, directly into my bank account.
Obviously I can call my bank and they will tell me whether the payment has been made or not, unlike these situations where fake PayPal emails have been sent.
Anyone else had this experience and it's worked, or not??
