I would like to share my experience of meeting a Con Buyer here, and I hope that no one has yet been cheated.
Someone will contact you (in my case a "lady" ) and show some interests in your item for sale. After the price is agreed, the pattern starts. In my case, she said she is pregnant and she wanted to buy my gear to give as a present for his husband. She needed a little help from me.
Firstly, she is now in Malaysia with her parents, and her husband is in Nigeria (of all places), because he is a missionary. She wanted to give him the gear as a surprise birthday present and needed me to courier out to him as soon as she made the TT to my bank. Of course, no problem for me to help such a sweet lady!
All agreed, she emailed me the payment slip and asked me to follow up as soon as possible. All looked legit, bank is Urban Partnership Bank, Dallas, USA. Checked my bank account, no money in. Look at her bank slip, and noticed this term:
We are processing the payment. You don't have to wait for us to finalize the transaction. You are required to deliver the item, then send scanned copies of the shipment document and slip to us via email to enable us remit the money to your account.
If the shipment document and slip isn't received, the transaction will not be processed further. After it has been received, inquiries will be made to confirm the status of the consignment before the money will be remitted to your nominated account.
The rest is obvious. Remember NEVER ship out anything without checking to confirm that you have received the monies.
