Default Possible Scammer Phishing For Paypal Address, or Flake, Your Opinion's Please?

I posted in the wrong section, I was looking for opinions of the "Staff and Mods" Thanks for the replies though


EDIT: adding the communications for clarification, not just the last one, I deleted his first PM's, then these are from his second comm's

I'm not concerned about a buyer backing out of a deal, I'm "questioning" a potential scam, if I'm 100% incorrect, this can be deleted and everyone can be on their way



Hello

I usually don't care about Flakes but this person has put up some red flags to me.

The user "sethorama" asked twice for my paypal account
posted twice in my thread
pm'd twice stating "I'll take it"
noted twice his payment options
then sent the PM quoted below after I sent my account info??

With all these details this seems like some sort of scam for a paypal address. I was thinking to report the PM's/Posts to the Mod's but don't want to be over cautious. (or waste anyone's time if I'm wrong)

Your opinions please on posting Negative Feedback for this user because of these actions? (Mod's, will retaliatory Feedback be tolerated if the negative feedback is valid)

Thanks for your time, I hope this post wraps up in a day either way.

Matt

With you having no feedback at all and a low post count, I would want to do a goods payment. If your willing to cover any funds that will get me a secure $78 payment, I'll get the wire packed up and sent out to you. (if I get shorted on the payment, I will refund your money and we will not complete this transaction)

Paypal: xxxxxxx


Let me know and i can get you a tracking number tomorrow.

Thanks

Matt
Your not understanding what im getting at. Ive done 3-4 transactions on here just never followed up on them but ill get on them now.

What i am trying to say i am not paying that for used wire.
i can spend just a little more and get it brand new...
if your not willing to come down a little . no point in talking.

Yes, my account email

It wasn't the fact that the buyer back out (that's expected as you noted), it was the pursuit for my paypal and then the complete 180 immediately after sending it.

If this is a Scammer, they should not be on this site at all. Just ignoring it would lead to others getting scammed. (if I'm wrong, my bad, I'm just looking out the the community's best interests here)


That's why I'm asking for opinion for the staff before feedback is left.

Thanks

Matt

well, let me clear my post from what u have shown i don't see any real proof the member is trying to scam u thus i said if you feel that way walk away. all i gathered from that was he is trying to get the wire for less money and yes he offered a gifted sale and u also asked for paypal fees which is against the rules .

also feedback is only for completed deals so u can not leave any feedback .

i say contact a mod via pm and talk to them .

although the buyer can still be a scammer unless he actually does scam and its proven they can not be banned on a hunch

Well he ask "what can you do for me"? He wanted you to drop the price. Trust me he cant do anything with your email.

You know there is sites that sell your email to spammers. They send spam or try to get you to sign up for there site and get your credit card info or make a bogus sign in for a site and get your info. All he can do is guess your password.
