Thread: Has anyone else received a request like this????

  1. #1

    Question Has anyone else received a request like this????

    Last night I got the following question through ebid email.

    Dear Seller

    First, allow me to congratulate you on your store, and wish you

    continued progress and success. My name's XXXXXX ,I am a dealer
    and I want to buy from your store 135 of this product but first I
    want you to send me a free sample of this product for review before
    buy it.

    Thank you for your understanding.

    This is my shipping address: Name :XXXXXXXX
    Address: XXXXXXXXX

    City:Casablanca Country:Morocco

    When I checked the listing, it shows that the question was posted 12/31/1969.
    I replied to this dealer that I do no send free books and I don't ship internationally
    as this many books would cost approximately $500-600 to ship.

    There seems no place other than the forum to ask if I should just forget about
    this question (I have replied) or if it needs to be forwarded to ebid as spam.
    I have removed his name and address just in case this is a real person on ebid
    and not a scammer.

    Thanks for any suggestions, this is a first for me after 20 years of internet selling.

    I would report this to eBid it sounds a bit fishy to me and that date on the question is worrying !

    Thank you both for your comments, I did forward to ebid support and was just informed that the person had been suspended. Hopefully he will not contact any one else, but support handled within 15 minutes of forwarding the original message.

    Have a great day, the sun is shinning here and the rain has finally stopped.
