I've see a few posts recently asking if a buyer request was a scam or not. After my initial annoyance that people don't see scams....I relaxed a bit and decided a thread on scams would suit people very well. Here are some of my clues: 1. You reside in a city in the US and selling an iPad on Craigslist. Scam Alert: The person is from anywhere further than 150 miles from your city. Scam Potential - 80%. 2. You are selling an iPad 1 or 2 on Craigslist in a US City and someone outside of the US - China, Nigeria, New Zealand etc...wants to buy from you...Scam Potential 100%. 3. You are selling on Ebay an iPad 1 or 2 and a person writes to ask you to close the auction early for them. That is usually followed by a request to handle 'this transaction outside of Paypal' so the buyer doesn't have to pay the fee's. Scam Potential 1000%! 4. You are selling an iPad 1 or 2 on Ebay or Craigslist and a buyer wants to pay by a Postal or Bank Money Order. Scam Potential 99%. How about yours?
