    Default ebay please read

    a mate of mine has been done out of £360 pound today on ebay.
    he put his old playstaion 2 on for sale with the auction method and a submit best offer method
    he got a best offer from a person in nigeria who offerd him £220
    he toke up the offer and then contacted them to tell them it would cost them £130 to send it out.
    the person said that was fine but said can i pay thought BID PAY "the one like pay pal" so he replyed and said that would be fine.
    a day later BID PAY sent him a email saying that he had to send the item before thay can release the money into his account, so he sent it "like a f**ing n*b".
    it has been 2 weeks now and after sending BID PAY lots of emails he got one back today saying BID PAY had seized trading on the 30th of december and that he has been part of a scam of people in nigeria making millions from doing the this the exact same way, he also contacted ebay and thay cant do a thing.
    as he also gave over his bank account details to a fake BID PAY ebay has told him to close his account.


    so please be awear that there is no more BID PAY and dont except anything from anyone in nigeria

    and take it from me my mate is not a happy mate anymore

    regards

    As you say Dean, he has partly himself to blame for not being exactly sensible about the whole thing. He's learned a lesson - the hard and expensive way!

    I've had the same thing when I've had things on ebay. e-mails sent through ebay asking if I'll end early, them offering to pay over the odds and they'll pay by Bid Pay. My instant reaction to those was the delete button. Shame your mate didn't as well!

    ive had exactly the same thing, only i was suspicious so didint complete the transaction, but instead of bidpay, they offered to pay by postal order, they even went to the extent of making the email look official GPO but they put a link in to the postal order payment site which stated they dont sell postal orders in nigeria so i sent them a nasty email back telling them where to put it.
    this also happened using paypal!!
    i suggest not sending anything till you have the cash in your hand

    As soon as the word "Nigeria" is used, you need to be on your guard! I've heard of many scams recently and most of them appear to be operated out of that country.
