  • Here we go - "She"? is getting her hooks in - 

    Hi.Jon,
    I am in Dublin until December 21 to work.
    Guitars is posted my husband in Manchester,and I received it here in gift from my boss.
    I have the item here with me and would like to close the transaction through the PayPoint service (you can find it at the local store near you).I want to sell it because I already have one.The delivery will be next day and you will have the opportunity 
    to try the item at the store or at your address before I receive the money.The transaction will be cash on delivery, let me know if you're interested to use this service.The item will be delivered via RoyalMail.


    Thanks!
    Mrs.Kimberley.

  • And another! Just clarifying the process to me -  nice and thorough isn't she!

    Hi.Jon,
    Here is how the PayPoint transaction works:
    1 you give me your(postal code,full names and full adress)
    2 i will search for a PayPoint shop near you
    3 I will hand over the item to PayPoint, they will start the transaction and send you an invoice, you will buy the paysafecard receipts/vouchers and confirm them with PayPoint
    4 they will deliver the item to the PayPoint store or your house address and you inspect the item.
    5 After you inspect and test the item , you will forward me the paysafecard receipts
    You will not pay to me until you will see and inspect the product,all you have to do is to buy the Paypoint receipt from a PayPoint store and keep them until you will receive and inspect the item .
    After that you can send me the Paypoint receipts or you can have your money back from the store or PayPoint.
    The item will be delivered  directly to you.

    Thanks.
    Mrs.Kimberley.

  • Can I ask a (serious) question? What is PayPoint? Is it actually something that exists and is used for legitimate goods and services or is it something that scam artists use (and I've seen it mentioned before in Internet scams that infect peoples' computers) where they tell you to go and buy a $100 voucher and enter the code to pay them $100... It must be a weird thing that exists somehow that can't be tracked so they can do whatever they want with your dollar and get away with it? I don't know. Would like some clarity! 

    Either way... sounds dodgy haha.

    It's legit - you convert cash into a code for safe transactions. Problem is, not many people fully understand how it works and con artists basically ask for the code (which lets them withdraw the cash) without sending goods, and there is no record of a transaction occurring. Like PayPal gift, but with even less paper trail, iirc.
