Trust your instincts.

If you have ANY doubt, don't go through with it.

I had something similar hapen when I was selling a mobile phone. It looked dodgy as fook, so I made sure that the payment was received and transferred into my bank account before I sent the phone. Turned out that the money to pay me had came from a hacked PayPal account. The bloke I 'sold' it to got a free phone. I got 300. The person whose PayPal account it was got their money back and PayPal had to write-off 300.

Good result all round, really.

Personally I would disconnect Nigeria from the internet until they sort their corruption out.

Doesn't always work out like that, I sold a phone on Ebay, buyer bought it with a dodgy card/Paypal account. I withdrew the money into my bank account, Paypal took it from my Paypal account (So it was -120) and then tried to chase after ME for the 120 they'd allowed to be sent to me.

So the buyer got a phone for F*** all and I got the money, but also got grief of solicitors letters and debt chasing companies for 2 years.

You're quite correct, and my PayPal account is still 300 in arrears.

I received an email from PayPal almost immediately asking for their money back and I told them to get fuqed. I received a letter from some two-bit company in pidgin English purporting to be PayPal's legal representatives (they weren't listed on the Law Society's website so they ain't solcitors) saying that if I didn't give them the money back plus a ridiculous amount of costs they were entitled to a lien over my firstborn male (or something like that). I told them to get fuqed in stronger terms and that was the last I heard.

Thats why you should never accept Paypal or credit card payments when selling stuff online. Paypal won't protect the seller if the money you receive for the goods came from a hacked Paypal account or dodgy credit card.

I now only accept Postal Orders or direct bank transfers when flogging stuff on eBay.

Simple ebay rule - dont buy or sell anything that involves African members.
