I recently listed an item for Sale
on Ebay, it was listed pick up only as it was quite big.
The item sells and I noticed the buyers address was Middlesbrough. The buyer then contacts me and asks me if I will post the item to him and he will pay the cost so I agreed gave him a price and asked him to transfer the money to my paypal account.
He then gets back to me saying he doesn't want to use paypal and could I send him my bank details. Alarm bells now start ringing so I Look at the original paypal transaction and notice his details are registered in the Czech republic not Middlesbrough.Since I told him I would not give out my bank details he has vanished having paid £10 for an item.This is now in the hands of Ebay but my advice is do not deal with anyone out side of Ebay rules as it looks like this person was only after my bank details to empty my account. (wouldn't of got much lol).
