Once they ask you to pay by wire transfer it's a dead giveaway for a scam. Either pay by paypal (with a credit card), or pay directly with a credit card, otherwise you have no protection.

They still use the same stupid names -- Willam Scott (2 first names)- his real name is Bull Sh-t.

My other favorite about those is how they always give 2 locations.

Seriously, don't do it.

I agree - wires and Western Union are no no's - Paypal and credit cards at least give you some protection.

I recently had an ebay deal go bad. I was the buyer and paid using Paypal. After a three days of emails with ebay I had a full refund including shipping.

Run the other way and don't look back. This is the same type of scam as the emails you get that you've won the lottery in Great Britain worth millions of pounds Sterling.

Peace :cool:
