Payment through Paypal - advice please
Alarm bells are ringing loudly for me. However, I thought it worth asking advice (for a potential genuine buyer) even though I have already kicked this one out of touch.
I am selling my van and I have received an email (diverted through the advertising site) offering to buy my van - UNSEEN - and ‘they would pay through PayPal and have their mover collect the van once I confirmed the payment’. I asked why he didn’t even want to see the van and his reply was that he was on deployment and his mover would inspect once I had confirmed the payment. Well there you have it. What a load of twaddle. Screams SCAM to me in capital letters.
What is the best way to receive payment? My thoughts are by direct money transfer into my account. Do people use PayPal to buy vehicles?
Will be grateful for advice.
