Hello to you all again for another guide.

I have sold a few items with no proceeding past end of auction.

I have had a Person claiming he was a Australian out of the country in New Zealand and wanted to pay for the item via wire transfer.
He wanted me to send it as a Xmas Present to his brother in-law living in Nigeria.

I proceeded to email this gentleman over a few days asking some probing questions. He then failed to reply and i re listed the item.

2 weeks later i received a email from him saying he had broken his leg. He was unable to reply to my emails. He asked if i could send the item to him as he really wanted it.

After reading the above you can see floors in his story, originally it was a present now it was for himself.

I suggest you don't sell to buyers wanting postage to Nigeria, Indonesia, and there are a few more caution areas as you will find in ebay guides.

Remember safe selling:-
Except only bank transfer and paypal
If posting international and the item is over $100 send via EMS or if over $500 send via Fedex or EMS

Keep selling to within ebay auctions and buy it now. Do not sell to none ebay emails, or people buying out of ebay.

Happy Selling and more importantly Happy Bidding
