Default Not sure but just to be safe.

I have had a few requests now from people with zero feedback, and low post counts (0, 1, 1) to sell my buggy to new members from Poland. I cant say it is a scam because I am not going to go through with it to find out, but I am curious if other members are getting this as a new form of scamming.

If you send something and get paid they receive it and request paypal return funds, I am wondering how safe out of country transactions are. Never had any issue with PayPal was just kinda leery to go through with this deal.

Has the recent trend of scammers made me over skeptical?

At any rate, 8ight 2.0 premium buggy still for sale =\

thanks in advance

Default Update!

So I found a buyer for my 8ight 2.0 for $280 with the tire bundle(says he is from Chicago). He sends me PayPal with some goofy shipping address and asks me to send to Polamer Cargo with an address and some wierd number after his name(which is a different name than on his PayPal and his email address). All of which is in broken english
Red flags start going up so I decide to research Polamer Cargo

Turns out it is a company that ships to Poland. Concidence? 3rd person to contact me in less than a week wanting me to send to Poland that has no feedback, no posts, no reference from other sites. I know PayPal being sent is one thing on the good side, but I just refunded the money and am washing my hands of this transaction.

I'd rather not sell the vehicle and extras than put myself through the potential of being scammed.

Has all the scamming made me over cautious?

Pretty sure I am going to get some hate mail from him today but in the end, I just didnt feel comfortable.

Anyway, hope this doesnt happen to any one else.

I do not know if it's all the U.S., or only Mr. "tzap" is sick. My friend wanted to buy the Losi but "tzap" changed his mind after negotiations. Because he doesnt want to send to Poland. Sick.

However, a friend wanted to buy it. He came up with a satisfactory solution for both parties (Mr. tzap does not need to send to Poland(only to Chicago). Sent the money, thinking that everything is ok And here's accusation of fraud.

Best wishes similar to mr. Tzap Americans and their "American dream" in which they are stuffed with anti-Polish propaganda.

Greetings to all normal.

PS.
I invite to our website: rcmafia.pl
We have in a very nice track to which I invite (the site are photos and videos) (we hope to organize international competitions).

PS2. Sorry for bad english.

If only sending to Poland was the only issue, it wouldnt be a problem. Sending to the last of 3 people to request it from poland with no feedback and zero or less than 5 posts. If you arent a scammer, great for you and like I told you in PM, get some buyer and seller feedback and there will be less issues in the future

No offense to the "buyer", but I would have done the same thing.
