    I've sold quite a lot of things recently on Geoexpat classifieds. Not one successful (i.e. completed the transaction) buyer haggled. However, without exception, everyone who tried to beat down the price failed to follow up.

    YMMV!

    This scam sounds to me like they had set up a fake paypal so when you create your new account you provide your credit card details which are then stolen and used.

    sneaky sneaky - the ever evolving scam

    That sounds quite plausible.

    It's not just some old furniture we want to offload though, these are collector's items.... apart from that, there was some rather obvious pishing going on.
