    Hi,

    I am kind of new to the whole ebay selling thing. I was at craigslist and I answered someone who was looking for sellers.

    we need people to sell on ebay
    we provide all items
    we ship all items
    we pay you 300 dollars for selling 10 items
    you must have your own ebay account
    we mostly sell clothing
    we pay ebay fees for you
    we are a large scale closeout buyer
    you can sell as much or as many items as you can handle a month
    some consigners make 2000 a month

    Here are your items to list

    here are your items to sell
    be sure to send us your paypal address for your pay to get sent to



    start these auctions at .99
    let the auction go for a mix of days these clothing closeouts are filling up space so go 3 to 5 day auctions please

    on the ebay form put in this address for the payment by paypal from the buyer to go to xxxxxxxx
    all items ship from zip code 91601 Hollywood, CA

    here is your items they require no reserve start at .99
    be sure to send us a link to your auctions so we can track your sales and pay you
    you can also just send us the name of your ebay Id like if its JennysJunkshop or whatever that way we can track your sales numbers and pay you.

    shipping is free worldwide
    when you list the stuff please just let us know what you call your name on ebay so the computer can keep track of your
    progress and pay you



    item description all are new with tags.

    That's the Emails that I got from them.

    Do you think this is legit?

    I wouldn't be surprised if the ad was by a BHW member.

    Did you ask them why they weren't selling these goods themselves?

    Run. Run far away. CL is such a pool of sh#t.

    If they were legit they would sell themselves.

    If you want to continue with this I suggest you ask for samples. If the quality is not up to scratch then forget it.

    This is the response Email I got from them when I wanted some more information.

    Hi here is the info you requested

    In order to be a consigner all you need to do is have two things
    an ebay account and a paypal address
    two simple things that can be done in 30 minutes or less.

    for evey 10 items you sell on ebay you get 400$
    the amount the items sell for does not matter they all start very low and have 100% item sell through
    we pay all ebay fees

    we sell closeout items like sweatshirts, computers, tv's, etc
    we start you off with good items and give you more as you ask for them

    basically all you have to do is list the items for sale that we give you
    you can list them any time from anywhere you want
    the program allows you to work from a coffee shop or at home in your spare time
    We pay all Ebay fees and Shipping charges
    We ship all items ourselves once they sell and the payment has been forwarded to us
    We sell thousands of items monthly

    you put in the paypal address we give you on the ebay form. The payment is collected and items are shipped within a few days
    this is an easy program to follow and you can make a pretty good income by consigning
    we have hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of inventory so there are plenty of items that will keep you selling as long as you enjoy
    doing the work. We wont run out anytime soon. We have 2400 sellers on Amazon and Ebay.
    Last week one seller made 3000$ by selling 100 items
    Our items are mostly in the collectibles category there are also many antique glassware items

    I think it's kind of strange that they would pay me $400, even if I sell those 10 Items maybe only for 100$ (all 10).

    If i had to guess when you forward them the payment they dont ship the item.

    Side note...
    Also they trust people to forward them money?

    Well, this COULD be legit, because that they are looking for sellers instead of selling themselves really must not say anything ... I was a seller for many different people that wanted/couldn't sell themselves for different reasons and none of them was a scammer ....

    However, this

    sounds a bit strange. They really can't pay you $40 per item if it does not sell for a good price. Of course, it is true, that most auctions end with a good price, you may list an iPhone for $1 and the final bid will definitely be $600-800 .... but, as a business you cannot really rely on this. So go ahead and ask them, how they can give you a fixed commission for auction items starting at $.99, I would really like to hear their reply :D

    shipping is free worldwide and 400$ per 10 sell items it's smell like scam.
    never go to eBay and sell other stuff because 100% they don't get it, but they already pay,he jayjay81 take money out, but You pay all money back for peoples what spent they money buy a think what don't exist because on eBay have Your paypal account what make this place safer to buy anything.

    I would do only one test auction first. When you send them the money, make sure you never send this as a payment for friends/family but only as a payment for goods. If they do not give you a tracking number within 24 hours, contact them for it and tell them if they do not give it you will do a chargeback. If they do not respond you can wait for a few days. If you get an email from your buyer he did not receive the goods, refund him and do a chargeback on the money you sent to the company. You will definitely win the dispute and get the money back, because if the seller is a scammer he does not have a tracking number that he could give to paypal, so they will close the case and refund you.

    Normally if someone wants you to sell for them or rent your account it is for a good reason. A reason that warrants them
    not you use their own account. Do not mess with this and instead get your own source for products.
