    I have three buyers that want to buy my Raptor wheels/tires,(not Raptor Forum Members) they're all out of town buyers and offer to pay with Pay Pal and arrange for someone else to come and pick up the wheels/tires package in person. Sound very reasonable like a good trans action, but some how I'm not totally confident that these are the Real buyers? I'm feeling like there's something to it that I can't understand? Does any one here have had sold something with the similar situation with good result?? Please share your opinion or if you have any advice I'm willing to listen. Thank you in advance.

    If they use PayPal, it's an automatic payment so you see the funds. You should always get the payment before handing over the goods. Done it several times, meet them somewhere local with lots of people.

    to me
    Am shipping this to my dad in Australia and I got your PayPal email address I just want to be assured that is till in good

    condition as you said and i will not be disappointed??? so i have to ask you if you could be trusted ????? The shipping

    company charged me $1,500 before they can come to your side for the pickup so i will include the $1,500 they charged to pick

    it up and take it my dad house(1st class treatment),i will add the money together and send it into your paypal account, after

    i have made the payments, i will need you to help me send the $1,500 to the shipping company agent through money gram can be

    made at a post office near to you,there is always a money gram agent in most post offices or Walmart Stores .

    i have made the payment of $4,100 into your paypal accout and have
    also included an extra fee of $200 meant for the money gram
    charges,So you should have been notified with the payment confirmation
    via your same paypal email address and i also put this email address
    to the primary email address so that they can send the confirmation in
    this email address also so i want you to know that paypal as put an
    hold to the money and now it's been on pending in your paypal account
    but not until you send the shipper fess via westernunion and email the
    paypal customer care with the money gram money transfer details, So
    that they can verify it and get your paypal account credited without
    any delay and the shipper will come for the pick as soon as they have
    the money so if you do have $1,500 now in your hand you can jut go to
    the money gram and send the shipper money out first so that you can
    have the westernunion info for you to email the paypal that you have
    send the shipper fees out and give them the info for a verification
    and as soon as paypal is done with verification your paypal account
    will be credited with amount of $4,100 as soon as you send the pick up
    fee to the shipper via money gram money transfer...so do get back to
    me as well as soon as you got the money sent to the shipper with the
    western union money transfer details such as ref number,Amount
    sent,Secret question and answer and Address for the pickup.Here is the
    Agent info below:

    to me
    the payment has been sent and the funds has been deducted from my account, but due to the agent fee that is needed to be sent to the agent, that is why PayPal is putting an hold on the funds until you send the pick up fee to the shipping company agent you try all your harest to borrow the money from someone and as soon s paypal got the info from you and get your paypal account credited you refunds the money back to the person ..So i want you to establish your trust in this and let us make this deal done as i have put all my trust in you before i send the money i believe you will handle this for me in safe way and there will be no problem on it at all so this is why i send the money,and they have taking it out of my account now and i am waiting for you to do the one in your part so that we can bring the transaction to a peaceful end

    All joking aside I would block them from any communications with you. And chalk it up to just one more thing to make you say Hummm.
