So I posted my (HP) laptop for sale on eBay last night, and so far I've had 5-10 scammers post questions/message me about it. As I've learned how to identify them (their writing style and the demands they make are pretty obvious once you know what to look for), it isn't a safety issue for me, but I'm surprised at how many I'm getting. Does this always happen when posting something like a laptop (I got a lot of scammers when I posted it on craigslist too), or did I do something wrong that makes it especially attractive to scammers? My auction can be found here. (I'm not just posting this to surreptitiously advertise, I promise! ) It's pretty annoying, I mean I just delete the message and the posted question and the email eBay sends me, but still. Have you guys had this same problem?
