Fake buyers collection of goods

Like if this guide is helpful
When inviting buyers to collect your ebay items be sure to check there name and address as i have had people who are not the winning bidder arrive to collect the goods, this is a particular problem if you have put you telephone number in the item listing as fake buyers who may now even have an ebay account can ring to arrange collection pretending to be the winning bidder. if this happens and you dont relise then the best case is that the fake buyer arrives pays cash and you get an upset winning bidder but more worying is that if the winning bidder pays by pay pal and you hand over the goods not taking payment then you have just given your item to a stranger and the winning bidder will want their money back. So my advise is ask the buyer to confirm there address when they come to collect as fake buyers will not know this information. good luck and happy selling. Richard
