    So I posted an ad in Berlin (selling my phone) and some guy contacted me from another country (offering almost double than listed price,seems fishy). He said ship the item to him, he will pay me first through paypal.(He goes first)

    I said paypal is risky and want to go through bank transfer. Would it be safe, no way he can scam me if he goes first?

    1. It's definitely a scam .

    Here's how jt works .
    1. He most likely doesn't actually send it. He makes it look like he sent it .
    This happened to a family member. He sent a link to show proof but the address was so tiny bit different. It was like PaPal.com

    2. He might charge back

    Use Bitcoin.
    Even better, use a bitcoin escrow so even he is confident about not getting scammed.

    Bitcoin escrows charge very less %age fee and you cannot chargeback bitcoins.
