I need some advice, I won the following auction for a magura Laurin;
http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/290837258584? ... 1439.l2649
All seems fine, good feedback etc.
But the Sale seems a bit too good to be true, it went for a smallish amount compared to how much these Magura Laurin's are selling for.
So when I clicked Pay, using Paypal (of course) it sent me a message saying 'Payment Pending', then the seller sent me a message via ebay saying the Paypal address is not the correct one and to send the payment to the address he then supplied.
This has just happened. I then went onto paypal and had the option of 'cance;' which I did, and this reversed the pending payment.
All good. Then I decided to click, on paypal, send money for 'ebay items', but Paypal did not allow me to send money to the new email he supplied, and instead suggested that for ebay items I should check out on eBay.
Now, what would you do?
Send the Payment for 'goods and services' via paypal to his paypal address supplied?
or Query this with ebay?
I have written to him, via ebay telling him what message paypal has just given, and sent him a 'request amount' message too via ebay, and I have written to explain that I prefer his Paypal to be via ebay.
What do you reckon? is this a fraud?
are the forks worth the amount I am going to (if all's well) pay?
