    does it not matter when the money is in my paypal account

    except paypal will take the money back when they find it was paid for with non-existent funds…

    Ask him what ship he’s on.
    Then tell him you’re on the same ship, and you’d like to meet up for coffee….

    If it were me and my bike, I’d sail away from the deal….

    …. I have pick up agent…

    Do you know anyone who uses the term “pick up agent”

    As dodgy as it gets.

    If the buyer turned up in person naked, except for a pair of y-fronts on his head and with two pencils shoved up his nose, and paid you in 9 pound notes, it couldn’t be any dodgier. Proceed at your peril…

    I should change my shopping habits then, for fear of appearing dodgy…..

    tell him to send his agent the money and for him to bring pound notes, that should resolve it 🙂

    oh, and run awayyyyyyyyyyyyy……………………

    Plenty of buyers out there at the right price. Why go for the dodgy ones?

    I sometimes sell stuff on gumtree and get these emails all the time. Just reply with a daft question, ‘Can you read braille?’. I never seem to get a reply.

    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?
