I'm having a clear out to try to raise some funds to pay off some credit cards. I'm currently selling a PC on eBay, and have been contacted by a few buyers from Africa — from Zambia, to be precise. They seem incredibly keen to purchase my items, and are willing to pay whatever postage costs.
Being a bit of a skeptic wherever money is concerned, I'm wondering if this could be a potential hazard? A few things spring to mind:
- They just won't pay and I will have to re-sell.
- They will cough up, but import taxes/postage will cause me problems.
- Potential market for used PCs, retrieving data from disks for identity/financial fraud.
Can anyone comment on this?
