i put a phone for sale on gumtree.
i got an email next day asking me to send him request for money on paypal. after short time i received an mail that appeared to be from paypal, giving me the following details to post the phone to the following address:
Engr. Osarodion. A
11 Akharia street off mela motel road,
Off osakpamwan street,
Uselu Benin city, Edo State,
I advised the guy that postage is more so I will need to check exact one and let him know. He started moaning that the money has gone out of his account and he needs the phone to be posted as soon as possible.
So I cancelled the transaction on ebay.
Then I started receiving emails from 'paypal' saying that the money cannot be refunded and that i need to send payment to that person. I also got email stating that unless i send money or the phone, there will be legal action taken against me.
I called paypal directly. They said that there arent any transactions and that they did not sent me any emails.
After looking at those emails carefully, i noticed they were sent from email@example.com i sent email to that guy telling him to get lost.
so look out for dodgy buyers asking items posted abroad asap
