    Will my CB account get banned if it a nigerian scammer buys a CB product via paypal?

    Is this regarding something specific that you've recieved?

    To really give you any kind of answer, we would need to know what the email you recieved is saying. Generally though, if it's something suggested by a scammer then following their instructions will most certainly involve you losing money.

    If you're trying to do a reverse game on the scammer then like I said we need to know the email correspondence.

    That's the problem. I don't know if it's a good idea to trick the scammer into paying via paypal. The CB vendor might get mad and have my CB account banned.

    When in doubt, I would not risk doing anything with this. I am not even sure what you are trying to do as your post is not very clear but why do you want to try something that seems really risky from the get go.

    Yeah this is a typical ebay buyer type of scam. Sellers are constantly warned about this type of scam. It's bullshit, stay away from it.

    nevertheless it's not the usual Nigerian scam but i still smell scam, don't you have a fixed price product on CB? how do you get these letters? i don't see if any of them mention what is your product exactly, what they'd eager to buy

    stay away!

    Thanks for the warnings guys. Yeah this is a little too risky for me. I'll just ignore the messages. I'll definitely stay away!

    Any proofs to support the claims that they are Nigerians?

    Just wanted to point out - they're highly unlikely to actually send you any money. They'll just send you a fake email "from" PayPal to pretend they've sent you some money...
