    They are legit.

    The Roadrunner uses them all the time. I personally prefer Acme.

    Are you asking if TNT are a real company?

    If so, they certainly are. If you look around (assuming you live in the UK) you'll see TNT delivery vans quite often. Apple uses TNT for deliveries to the UK... I've had them knocking at my door a number of times.

    It is a common scammer tactic to use the name of a real delivery company, but invent some kind of 'secure payment and delivery' system which that company doesn't offer. The link for that will lead to a phony website and you will be ripped off.

    TNT Mailfast does shipping.

    They do not (as far as I know) do escrow services, verify that products or payments are secure, nor do bonded warehousing for individuals. Anyone who says they do in the context of a P2P sale online is a scammer.
