I was totally in the same boat as you guys. I am still a bit new to the whole online selling portion of paypal. My story is as follows:. I had read up on the rules and security before selling. I started by selling a game system on craigslist, within two days I had received an offer via phone i declined that one , the one I did agreed to was via email. Now this 'Laura' character claimed to have a grandson in France who was in some sort of research program , so I suppose it was somewhat plausible.
It only got more suspicious from here on. This person sent me a fake paypal confirmation email demanding I ship the item. It also said that paypal had changed its policy so payment won't show up on account until shipping was confirmed. I read through the email, numbers didn't even match I checked my account and nothing. I forwarded the email to spoof paypal. I told the person no payment was received.
They were getting real aggitated and claimed they didn't know what I was talking about. The last email was a threat to contact the FBI about how I was scamming them. Their ability to spell and write seemed to go down with every sucessive email.
Now this was my first attempt to sell something online. Moral of the story would be to read up on security topics and keep in touch with the paypal team. Big thank you for paypal, for keeping me from falling for that scam. To many sellers jump right in and get taken. Any mention of the FBI is also a red flag. It is their 1 fraud of - you can read it on the FBI website. Very informative of all the scams out there. I had a scammer emailing me once.
I replied to to them that I already forwarded the email my self to the FBI and never heard from them again I'm new to paypal and online selling. I got an email from a "Mrs. The grammar in the emails is pretty horrible. I'm suspicious but I want to sell the stupid things.
