I think ohhh well that's nice...
Hi, i have had someone wanting the item i was selling on ebay, they said they would put the money into my paypal account, and sure enough the money was in my paypal account, but i had a feeling it was dodgy, so i have now cancelled the money request, any idea what i do now the person and address is, ****
i wondered why he wanted to give me £90 for postage...glad i came into paypal forum and checked it out.
People in nigeria can't use paypal, they would have hijacked someone elses paypal account probable and used that and once reported by the owner of the account the funds would have been removed.
I have no problem giving you my email and my name on paypal? After readingthis forum, I told him that had already sold the product, but because you hadgiven those data, I do?
I just had this happen too. Its funny how when you email back, telling them they are scammers they stop responding. I had recieved an email from eBay when the bid was placed. it had an address attached. then received another email with a different address.
I got an email from eBay telling me the user account was locked.
Wow the exact same thing is happening to me right now. It shows that he has paid but i searched the zip code of the buyer and it brought me to websites about nigerian fraud. Want to know why it is happening and how to fix it.
