    So I posted a few auctions and made a few bucks on ebay, More on this later in another thread. Of Course not all my buyers paid me right after the auction end, and some are now going on a week, like this one below.

    I got this email this morning, from one of my "Buyers", This is hilarious in my opinion, Looks like a Nigerian email scam, twisted for ebay auctions, watch out for this one if you sell on ebay guys

    I would like to sincerely apologize for the delay in payment, well i am a new eBay member i have a debit card which i have been trying to upload on my paypal account, well unfortunately i only found out today that my bank only allows shopping online with a credit card.i would like to know if there is any way i can transfer the money into your bank account as soon as possible?
    Iglecias Maruta is my name, First National Bank of Namibia is my bank.
    Thank you and i would like to apologize once again for any inconvenience this may cause.

    - ebay user name removed (as much as I want to, I'm not sure I should post the "buyers" user name)

    what a crock, but hey, I guess he could be telling the truth and is just clueless....

    I replied with the following,

    I am sorry, I am not willing to give out my bank account details. Does your debit card have a visa or master card logo if so it will work fine.

    Let me know if you can pay with PayPal or if you want me to cancel the sale. Thanks
