    ***Shipping Overseas...0 Posts....Concerns***

    I have an offer from a member with 0 posts. They want to buy the 11 remaining watches in the box I have for sale. They state they are from Vietnam.

    Even through PayPal should I have concerns, or should I not even be considering this offer?

    No disrespect to anyone intended.

    Thanks for any input.

    I wouldn’t do it. All eleven watches , no feedback and to Vietnam?? If you are concerned enough to post here, trust your instinct.

    Perfectly stated, IMHO. Buying and selling on this forum is a privilege that is earned over time by participation the WUS community. I used to think that the scammers were rare, until someone hacked my account and tried tell sell a speedmaster using my account. Had to destroy my username and the 10 years of good reputation that I had built up on WUS over that time, so that I could buy and sell again. If the deal smells fishy...it probably is.

    I got ripped off buying a watch from a guy in Vietnam. Absolute disaster. And don't even think for a second that Paypal is going to back you, the seller.

    Thanks guys. Yes, going with my gut. Just wanted to throw out the question out of concern for myself and the community.

    Once again, no disrespect to anyone intended.

    I appreciate the input.

    Please continue to share your experiences and concerns.

    PP almost always takes the side of the buyer, I love how buyers think that makes it good for the seller. Tell them bank wire, see where that goes.

    You are not disrespecting anyone. You need to look out for yourself first. I would definitely skip on this transaction and wait for something you are 100% comfortable with. Not saying the potential buyer is a scammer or whatever, but too many what I would consider flags. I'd pass and not look back personally.

    Yeah, just say that you only accept bankwire and you should be good to go. Given your post count, they should be fine with sending first.
