ebay + second chance offer?

well i forwarded the emails to ebayspoof and they contacted me back basically saying not to give any financial information away and that any second chance offer would show up in my messages in my ebay which they weren't.

before that response though, i sent the guy an email with my name and address like he requested (public info) and i wake up this morning with a buy it now in my gmail inbox. the only thing is that he want me to send western union to the UK, what a crock.

its unfortunate that this kind of stuff happens and people lose their hard earned money. what a jerk :-t

Not sure that this was a scam but I have gotten e-mails from sellers of auctions that I have lost because they had extras. I have purchased this way with no problems.

Be careful contacting EBAY regarding stuff like this. They won't be happy that you are conducting business (partially) through them without getting a cut. ;-)

I've had several of these e-mails for items I didn't bid on.

Definite scam - avoid at all costs!

Hmm I've never gotten anything like this and I frequent ebay every now and then. It definately sounds fishy though. Damn scam artists. :-t
