    I don't use ebay that much, but I got this question from a buyer. Just wondering if you guys who use ebay get this alot and if it just a scam or if this would [i doubt it] be a pure offer. I'm afraid he'll send me the payment through paypal and then I'll ship it and he'll cancel the payment. Can you even do that on paypal, cancel a payment? Anyways, an input would be appreciated. Thanks.

    Total scam. Don't do this, because international law CAN go into your account and take the money out.

    Talk to Turbomirage.

    One of the more fun things to do is fuck with these guys. On one of my other forums, one guy had a bogus offer to rent a room in his house, and he's wasting as much of the scammer's time as he can. :)
