Some bloke contacted me on pinkbike wanting to buy my SC Nomad. He was willing to pay full price (inc fee’s)but only via Paypal. I know this sounds fine but I dont think he’s from the UK and he wants to send a “agent” to pick up the bike.
This is his last email to me
I really appreciate it, I am an oceanographer from
and am currently at sea at the moment, i am buying the item as a gift
for my Son, i want to make it a surprise for him,he wont know anything
about the item until they get delivered to him, i can only pay through
paypal as i dont have access to my bank account online as i dont have
internet banking,but i have my bank acc attached to my paypal account
and this is why i insisted on paying you through paypal,So please
kindly get back to me with your paypal details so i can proceed
with the payment and after the payment has been done, i have a pick
up agent that will come around to pick the item up after i have made
the payments for the item…….Greetings
Does anyone else think this is dodgy or does it not matter when the money is in my paypal account?Posted 5 years ago
