Weird Buyer Request

buyer bought a piggy bank for my daughter paying through PayPal. Then said he was a marine and asked if she would include a $300 gift card in the package and he would pay her through PayPal as well. This raises a red flag for me but i I'm not sure what i should be worried about if she received the PayPal payment first. Anyone able to help?


Re: Weird Buyer Request

Hi @ronmunman,


That definitely sounds like a scam! I would not advise sending money with the item you're shipping as there's no guarantee you'll receive a payment for that gift card, and that you wouldn't have Seller Protection for the payment. I hope this helps!
