They sent $30.00 for a bounce check through PPal and gave a story that the babysitter stole their checkbook and wrote bad checks.

No more word from them so I'm out $110.00
Yes, this check was held 10 + days!

If I interprete well this sad story, the buyer sent a bounce check to PPal and PPal will not pay the seller.
If not even a Paypal payment is safe, what else can we use as a guarantee for a good payment. Doesn't PayPal charge a fee to process the payments and provide the seller with some insurance ?
Is Google check out a better deal ?

My real question is to ask this forum for a good formula on payments that possibly could become a standard for all the sellers on eCrater. A common policy will provide stronger protection to all of us and descourage scammers to come to our stores. And may be we could negotiate collectively some better deal with PP.

Please back up your scammer warning post with some proofs if you reply to this thread. For example you can post the copy of the email you got.

Had my first eCrater attempted scam today!!! Here is the email or proof that ecrater requested...his email.

Re: Distressed White Wood Mini Shelves/Plant Stand -NEW

Buyer: scott

Good day seller,
Am willing to purchase this item to my newly opened store in west
Africa paying you via US certified check .
Firstly, will u allow my shipping company to come over from West Africa
to come and pick up the item??
Will you be able to send the shipping funds to the shipping company in
west Africa after u might have cashed the check and deducted your own
part of the money(Money for the item)??
Will u be able to give me more pictures of this item
Last of all, i will like to know the current condition of the item and
the last price for the item . If al these stated above can be done
kindly get6 back to me with ur name , address and phone number where u want
the payment to be addressed to.
Due to my absence in the state, i would not be able to send the
shipping funds seperately cos US check is not cashable nor negotiable there in
West Africa. Thanks

scottj247@yahoo.com

I am just going to report this to spam and not even reply. Very Happy

I also received a similar email from

scottj247@yahoo.com

He wants to buy a lot of 10 of my one of a kind vintage hats! If he had a brain he would realize most vintage items don't come in lots of 10!!!

Is there somewhere else we should be reporting these things other than this thread?

When you open your email...instead of hitting delete just hit "report as spam" that's what I do...then you won't receive anymore emails from that address and they do whatever they normally do with spam...LOL Very Happy

To their e-mail host or ISP. In this case, it's most likely abuse@yahoo.com.

I believe this is a scammer, wants to pay with methods I dont accept, and wants me to do the transaction outside of eCrater.
