I've been selling stuff on Ebay for many years and have never had a problem. That all changed 2 weeks ago. I listed a DVD player and someone with 0 feedback that had just registered that day, swooped in at the last minute and way overbid on the player. He/She immediately sent me an email requesting that I ship the player to Nigeria for his son. I was born at night, but it wasn't last night and this smelled like a scam to me. So I did a quick Google search using Ebay and Nigeria and found tons of complaints linking to emails eerily similar to the one I received. I told this clown to get lost, filed a non-payment complaint with Ebay and requested the return of my listing fees. I received the fees back immediately because this scammer cancelled his Ebay account. I'm now in the process of re-listing the player. Fast forward to this week. I had an auction for a digital camera that ended almost identical to the DVD player. Someone with no feedback that had just registered that day way overbid and won the auction. This morning I receive an email from Caroline Herb telling me she'll pay $70 to ship an $80 camera to her fiance in Nigeria. She even was kind enough to send me a nicely designed fake Paypal email. Has this happened to anyone here? So what's the deal with Ebay these days? How can I sell my old stuff without this kind of thing happening.
