  • Ebay selling phone - buyer offering too much

    Salam

    I hope you're all well in Sha Allah. I'm selling an old phone of mine on ebay and I've exchanged messages with a buyer a few times today. He is willing to pay £70s MORE for the phone PLUS an extra £100 for delivery to Nigeria. He wanted my PayPal and name so he can send me the payment.

    Not sure what to do. Red a few things online about a potential scam that happened a few years ago with phones and buyers from Nigeria. But, is he is willing to pay me via PayPal and if and when I receive the money - doesn't that show that he is a safe and reliable buyer? Please assist. He is waiting for my 'urgent' response. Lol.

    Only considering his offer because its been the highest one so far and the supports the actual value of a used phone with a model like mine. But I'm not sure if I'm gonna get scammed even though I ain't paying anything.

          I'm just thinking - why not give it a go? It's just my PayPal details... But I think I'm being too naive with regards to my approach. I still feel unsure.

                Sounds very suspicious. What’s his ebay profile like, was it created recently, have you checked his feedback

                And yes, you can still get scammed. He wants your paypal email address, why? Sounds like he just wants your email address so he can spoof a fake paypal confirmation of payment to your email, making you think that you’ve been paid when he hasnt, tricking you into giving the phone away for free

                  This has scam written all over, sister. Would 'urgently' advise avoiding.

                    If he pays me I can just check my actual PayPal account to verify his purchase. I won't be getting scammed? I checked his reviews. About 25 businesses praising him as a good buyer with immediate payments but I'm not sure because they all had the same sort of writing style

                    Also he says he wants to buy a phone for his grandson but my phone is rose gold

                    And I offered him a normal price and he just said he will pay me £70 extra for the phone plus delivery

                    Confusion

                      Okay you know what... I'll avoid in sha Allah as my gut instinct is saying no and I was unsure about it since the beginning.

                      Jazakamullahu khayra.

                          Yeah I saw that. Just surprised the same thing is happening to sellers in 2020. Baarakallahu feekum.

                            You should ask him why he needs your paypal details when he can pay directly through ebay paypal

                            would be amusing to see what nonsense he comes up with
