this was the first question I got about my camera...

Question about your item



Dear lwgear,

Hello, I am very interesting. Can you charge direct credit card payment?(Not Paypal, becuase Paypal unaccesable from Indonesia) I am US citizen working now in Indonesia as a mining consultant. Can you ship it to my address in Indonesia? I'll pay all additional shipping fee. Waiting for your reply. Regard. Riyan

Lets move this discussion to TOTEM.

Lynne: Bingo. Same story, same writing style, different name with the Indonesia guy, no doubt he's very interesting.

Quote:
Dear Seller, After I seen your item and I want to order it, First I want ask about payment since paypal don't serve my country yet could you charge my card directly through your merchant account or credit card terminal machine cause I'm prefered use my card directly and also at this time I'm not interest again to other payment.Will you ship it to Indonesia via FedEx? I will buy your item for US$2500 and cover the shipping cost if you could charge my credit card directly. This my first questions and please don't hesitate to reply my question and we hope can do a new business international in new relations and I live in Indonesia. Hope hear from you soon. Best Regards, Simone
This fellow who goes by the name Linda Rapp, Raymond Ajiboye and Ronkmay whose son needs this camera for his final exams. I'm afraid he's going to fail. Behold:

Quote:
hello seller Am Linda Rapp from NY, i saw the camcorder you placed on your advert which i will like to buy from you and send it to my son in nigeria for his final project examination that will commence very soon in nigeria. i will offer you $2500 for the camcorder, including shipping charges to my son in nigeria, if you are intrested in selling it to me, i will pay you via western union money transfer so i will need ur contact address to make the payment. get back to me ASAP
Oh, an offer to use escrow to protect the buyer and the seller. That sound legimate, doesn't it?

Quote:
Hello,I am very interested in your item.Is it new? Selling price? I need right away because i intend to send it as a gift. Please email me the final price including shipping to City: Marbella, zip code:29600, Country: Spain via FeDex 2 day Express shipping. I will deal only with an escrow company.I do not have PayPal. The escrow company is a service that protects both buyer and seller against fraud. I will pay the shipping and escrow fees. If we agree on the price, we can start the escrow process today.Thanks and please get back to me as soon as possible.
The last one might have been a buyer who's genuinely interested, but he blew his cover wanting me to ship the camera first and then sending the tracking number to the "escrow company" who will then send me a "password" to "unlock" the funds on my BofA account. Man, if this doesn't ring your alarm bells then I don't know what does!

Stay sharp!

Got it, too, after listing it on eBay:

"Hi,there. I'd like to buy your item.the price is ok for me. but could you please ship the item to my brother address in Indonesia for my x'mas present. So,please let me know soon. thank you . "

I almost want to fool him, like these guys did with a fake PowerBook to some scammers in England.

That's interesting...about a year ago I was looking for a PowerBook and ended up dealing with that UK scammer. I reported him to ebay and they shut him down. Then I bidded and won a PB from another guy--turned out to be the same guy who had hooked up with someone else who knew slightly better English. Needless to say, I never paid (and he never asked).
I managed to sell my HD10 plus AspectHD on a third try. Only got two bids but it sold for $1625. I lost $400 from what I'd paid for it three months ago but I consider myself lucky (and consider it a rental fee).

I hope I get more money than that. Someone emailed me privately, not from eBay and isn't a user here, so I probably won't sell it without further proof he's legit.
