As a buyer, I have had to provide proof of receipt by the seller of the returned item to win a claim. *Of course the scam was being worked in reverse. *An laser that was obviously dropped BEFORE packaging was sent anyway. *The seller was either hoping I would just accept it, or he was scamming the carrier through the insurance claiming they damaged it.

He has the unit back up on eBay (starting at $1) using my pictures to show the broken tube. *I guess he is hoping someone out there can re-blow a glass tube and then re-charge the gas.

Anything I ship worth over $30 gets sent "signature confirmation." EVERYTHING gets delivery confirmation.

Peace,
dave

then tell them you can only accept a cashiers check or a m.o. and that the payment has to clear before you ship.

I'd suggest not doing business with that person. craigslist is the scum of the internet unless you meet them in person.

When people offer to pay more than you ask, this is a for sure sign of they are trying to rip you off.

don't sell to them. you'd have better luck selling it on here or some other forum.

-Kendall

edit: forgot to say, I don't recommend ebay either. eBay the company is also pure evil scum. I recommend trying Facebook marketplace, iOffer, or forums to sell it. good luck.

Yeah you ever read the rules ?


Most scams involve one or more of the following:

* inquiry from someone far away, often in another country
* Western Union, Money Gram, cashier's check, money order, shipping, escrow service, or a "guarantee"
* inability or refusal to meet face-to-face before consummating transaction

Classic 419 scam, they send you $700 instead of $500. You send them $200 back, they cancel the original $700 payment and youre out $200 and possibly a laptop


EDIT: By cancel I mean a credit card chargeback or something

IIRC, craigslist goes by city, so why is she searching through your city's craigslist if she's in the UK?
