On the weekend, I'd put up my last Leica accessory on line and made it pretty clear that it was for Australia only, a day later I received a message saying it was sold. When I checked, the buyer was apparently from the UK. I contacted the buyer and said this was only for Australian buyers and the buyer responded saying they would pay for a courier to come around and pick it up, as well as: Now this got my alarm bells ringing, as this all sounded way over the top (even though I've noticed these items selling for around three times the price in Europe). But what annoyed me the most was that the buyer didn't contact me first to see if I was willing to send it overseas and how we'd go about it, they just selected buy it now and left me in a dilemma. I've always contacted a seller if they don't list overseas destinations and sometimes they change their mind and other times not, but I feel it's an essential courtesy to contact them first. The messages from the buyer got more desperate and that made me even more hesitant. The thing is, I've seen this sort of wording posted in other forums many times, and it's typical of scammers buying stuff and then saying it wasn't as described, not paying for the item, and you end up in the lurch. Now the buyer may well be genuine, but it's often hard to tell, even looking at the buyers details, so I'm not sure if I'm being too cautious or not. It doesn't mean that the same can't happen in Australia, but sending such internally with registered post is less hassle. Has anyone else gone through such dramas?
