Please be very careful when selling high value items ( such as mobile phones , PSP , TVs , ..)

Happened to me so I know how bad it can be .....


My story ;

Buyer won my PS 3 and paid immediately via Paypal ( happy days !)

I then withdrawned the money from my Paypal account to my bank account ( usually takes 5-7 working days to clear - long time, buyers don`t like to wait  )

Next day I send the PS3 via Next day special delivery ,

Buyer received it and said "very happy"

Few days later Paypal cancelled the transaction as "unable to retrieve any money from buyers account "

Transaction has been reversed ( as well as the payment )

Tried to contact the buyer but no reply to my emails , ebay unable to help , paypal unable to retrieve any money as buyer cancelled his direct debit with paypal !

Left with no  money and no item - very angry !!


Please be careful  there is a lesson for all of us to learn ! Not all the buyers are scammers let`s be honest but you can never be too careful , happened to me only once but I am still very souspicious of every buyer  !

Remember never ever sent high value item(s) out before getting the payment into your bank account (not paypal ,) buyers don`t like to wait but you are doing this for your own safety !
