Tell him to go through paypal or fuck off. The seller is evidently only protected if they go through ebay. I would also request that he pay for registered shipping.

Well I checked with eBay and I guess I have to wait 7 days to file any action.

I gave him my PayPal e-mail because I figured he could acquire this information from the checkout page anyway. We'll see.

Thanks guys.

Dont have to be a scam. For instance, I used to bid on behalf of a person who didnt want an ebay account. Hence he would have to use his paypaladdy, and not mine, wich is tied to ebay in some ways.

Or he could just be a rip-off Smile

Personally I would follow through with the proper ebay procedure, why take a chance otherwise.

Some bonehead Italian refuses to use the checkout on the listing page for my auction. He keeps asking for my PayPal address and saying he will pay on the PayPal site. I feel like he is trying to scam me. Anybody have experience with something like this? His feedback rating is all of 3. In addition he is using multiple names and email addresses which further adds to the confusion and makes me very suspicious.


sounds very suspicious. with the low feedback, multiple names, emails. if its an important sale, and he insistes on direct to paypal, send it EMS and charge him the extra $30 + for postage. it at least offers a online tracking # in case he claims non receipt. if not such an important sale, give the 2nd place bidder a 2nd chance offer

Definately a scammer. The rule is, if you buy something through eBay, you pay through eBay - otherwise neither the buyer nor the seller are protected. Don't accept a penny from this dude, as he'll claim it back next month and leave you empty-handed.

BINGO! This is your guy! He was VERY slow to pay me, but eventually did. It wasn't an ebay thing though.


Are you sure? What was his name? The email that necrogoat posts is different than the one I have for "Antonio."

EXACTLY. This is essentially the bottom line- if it sounds suspect don't take the risk.
