BEWARE OF BUYERS WHO WANT YOU TO SEND ITEMS TO NIGERIA OR WITH PRIVATE FEEDBACK

I RECENTLY HAD A BUYER CLICK ON BUY IT NOW ON A MOBILE I WAS SELLING HE THEN EMAILED ME SAYING THAT HE HAD PAID MORE THAN I WAS ASKING AS HE WANTED IT SHIPPED TO NIGERIA AT THE SAME TIME I HAD AN EMAIL FROM WHAT APPEARED TO BE FROM PAYPAL SAYING THAT MONEY WAS WAITING TO GO INTO MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT AND THAT IT WOULD BE IN AS SOON AS I HAD SENT A TRACKING NUMBER TO PAYPAL.USA I CLICKED ON THE LINK IN THE "PAYPAL" EMAIL AND SAID THAT I DO NOT SHIP OUTSIDE OF THE UK AND WISH TO DECLINE THIS TRANSACTION I ALSO EMAILED THE BUYER "LEWIS_HENITT" WHOSE EMAIL IS LEWIS_HENITT12 AT YAHOO DOT COM TO TELL HIM THAT THE MONEY WAS NOT IN MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT AND THAT I DO NOT SHIP OUTSIDE OF THE UK.

A FEW HOURS LATER I RECEIVED AN EMAIL FROM "PAYPAL" ASSURING ME THAT THE MONEY WAS IN SAFE HANDS AND THAT ONCE I HAD SENT A TRACKING NUMBER THE MONEY WOULD BE IN MY ACCOUNT. 

WELL A FEW THINGS DIDNT QUITE ADD UP LIKE THE WAY THE EMAIL SAID

We understand your question but we need to like you know that the total amount

AND

so you have to know that your money is safe.

I THEN DECIDED TO FORWARD THE EMAIL FROM "PAYPAL" TO SPOOF AT PAYPAL DOT CO DOT UK IN THE KNOWLEDGE THAT THEY WOULD LET ME KNOW IF IT WAS IN FACT FROM THEM OR NOT. I RECIEVED A REPLY FROM THE REAL PAYPAL INFORMING ME THAT THE EMAILS I HAD RECEIVED WERE IN FACT NOT FROM PAYPAL AT ALL.

 SELLERS PLEASE BE AWARE THAT BUYERS ASKING YOU TO SHIP  YOUR ITEMS TO NIGERIA MAY WELL BE THE ONES ATTEMPTING TO GET YOUR PASSWORD AND OTHER INFORMATION THAT WILL HELP THEM TO ATTEMPT FRAUD.

WELL ALL THIS HAPPENED YESTERDAY AND TO DAY THE BUYER IS NO LONGER A REGISTERED EBAY MEMBER. NOW I WILL NOT TRUST ANY EBAY MEMBER ASKING ME TO POST OUTSIDE OF THE UK NOR ANY WHOSE FEEDBACK HAS BEEN MADE PRIVATE

BE AWARE OF EMAILS FROM PAYPAL @ USA AS THAT IS THE V SPOOF ONE I GOT!!!!

HOPE THIS HELPS OTHER SELLERS STAY SAFE AND NOT BECOME PART OF SCAM ATRISTS LATEST VICTIMS!!!!
