    i got some stuff for sale on gumtree and some other classified sites. I keep getting emails from people offering to gaypal me more than the items worth 'right now'! or offering me generous amounts to post the item to their country. Dont they realise that if they act like a real buyer and try to haggle with me to get the item cheaper im more likely to fall for their shit.
    Am i right to presume that the scam is that they paypal me the money, i send item and they do a charge back?

    they will usually send you a fake email that looks like exactly like the email paypal sends you when someone sends you money. Or they will try to send you a bad check. Here is what i do, when they send you some fake cash tell them that everything is good and you got the money, but you need like $30 dollars more for shipping. If they send you another fake one tell them that one didnt work, if they think they can get an expensive item for $30 they will really send you $30, pocket that shit and ignore em. Ive done this a few times, scamming the scammers.

    i should turn this into a bh method and sell an ebook on dp :p
