Streetcruiser,

  The domain "UK2.net" is a web-hosting company in the United Kingdom.  Based on that, I'd be VERY wary of the deal.  Lots of 'bogus' crap coming out of the UK these days.

 

   I would want a CASHIERS CHECK in hand, including the funds to handle shipping to him, PLUS a real address before I did anything.

 

uk2.net web-page (this guys email is hosted by them)

That sounds like the same scam that happened to a guy I work with.He was selling a boat.Anyway he was contacted by the police and also his very pissed off bank after the sale. So far he has not had to pay the bank back .I would contact the authorities.

No Way :no:

 

I'd walk away from this guy just based on the grammar of his E-mail.  Looks to me as if he never completed the 4th grade.

When selling on ebay or online, you post YOUR terms, and just as IndianChief said ... sell on YOUR terms.  Don't let a buyer set the terms.  If they can't abide by the terms set forth in your listing, then F*** 'em.  There are WAY TOO MANY scams artists out there.  BE SUSPICIOUS!!!

 

Be careful and good luck

I read about this somewhere else. Streetcruiser, ANYONE can print what looks like a "cashier's check" from their home computer/printer......and usually it will fool the bank, until it comes back as NO GOOD to your bank.

 

DON'T DO IT!

 

What I read about the scam is, that someone will send you a cashier's check for more then they owe you, with instructions for you to send the "extra money" on to a third party...since the "extra money" that you send will actually be good money.

This is a classic case of an internet scam!Don't send this person the item or accept his cashiers check.You'll never get your merchandise back and the check is more than likely a worthless piece of paper.Beware of this kind of buyer!

That is the scam . The guy at work has been harrassed by the local cops because the bank is trying to get their money back from him. :shocked:  :veryangry:

Anything over $1000 should be done by wire transfer anyway...

 

ZERO fraud.

 

Thanks, Danny

Its a fucking scam! :veryangry:

I had a baby grand for sale on e-bay, and got a similar response. Like Earthgoddes2's "buyer", this dickweed was from Africa. I told that piece of shit to tie a knot in his prick and shove it up his ass!

That's a nasty little twist on it...

 

thanks for the heads up.
