I have been getting email from someone who wants to buy something in my store but wants to pay with MONEYGRAM. This person claims to be a Marine who works 18 hours a day and sent an Ebay name with good feedback. The name and the feedback name don't match but that is typical.

i have been using moneygram for a long time never
come across any problem from my buyers or sellers, MoneyGram also have the
way they protect both buyers and sellers, once i have made the payment you
will be immediately notify from moneygram through your email, you dont have to
go anywhere to receive your cash, im a Marines an i work 18hours daily
everyday, anyway you can send me all the information to make the payment, i
think i can give you 270 including the shipping?? are okay with that?

I would be very cautious with this one. He wants to pay 270 for something? Do they want your account number to put this money in? It just sounds odd to me.

On another note, looking at your items, it looks like there are duplicates. If there is something different about each one, you should put it in the title. Otherwise duplicates aren't allowed here.

Tell them you only accept PayPal or Google Wallet.
If they don't have a PayPal account they can still pay you without registering.
If they do have a PayPal account, have them sign in to their account at checkout and make payment.
If this person is on ebay they know how it works.

If they have time to do the Instagram money thing, they have enough time to go through PayPal or Google.

Enjoy the weekend.

I agree with Ralph. If they have an eBay account with lots of feedback they must have a PP account also. It is a lot of money to play truth or dare with.

Do Marines really work 18 hour days now?

Just a suggestion but you should remove the person's identifying information.

Sounds like a scam to me; too many red flags. And, like was previously mentioned, if he makes any ebay purchases he HAS to have a paypal account, as that's the only way you can pay for ebay items now.

(Also, my son is a Marine; I find it very hard to believe that this guy is working 18 hours a day -- doesn't sound legit. to me)

Lots of international sellers and buyers use MoneyGrams. A good friend loves them. He sells expensive items and tells me the buyer sends him a Moneygram number. He takes the number to Walmart and they give him the cash. After that he is safe to ship as the cash is in his pocket. Just never ship before you have the cash in case the Moneygram number is bogus.
