p.1 #1 · Seller "Lanned"


I posted a WTB ad for a Sony lens. Lanned answered to my ad saying he has one for my price. Of course, if I pay using Paypal gift. I'm not saying he is not legit, but zero feedback and registered yesterday, were red flags to me.

Good call If more people used common sense, the B&S might
return again to yesteryears status.

Never buy or sell with Paypal gift. Never pay with cash from your Paypal account or from your bank. Always use a credit card when using Paypal.
If you follow these three rules you will reduce your risk by 99.5%. Most con men count on the greed of the "mark" to make their scam work.

ReneMurea, damn good call as Will said I blow by these zero post, zero feedback guys quicker than I change channels when the Sixers are on. I reckon if more of us did that, these guys would crawl back in their holes.

How can it do that if you aren't selling 'Monkey Glass'?

When I post a WTB I also ask to post in thread to see their credentials, that at least hints that I am not doing business with someone I don't know or don't have a reference from.

The other thing I will do is ask this person if they are willing to ship me the item and then after I receive it I will pay them That usually slows them down!

Ya know, I bought some 'monkey glass a few years ago, and it was my favorite and most used lens for some time (24L). But, now that the 'monkey shoots the wrong brand, I guess I'll never own any more of his hand-me-downs

Well, at least Lanned is trying I notice he's even filled out (sic) his profile indicating he's from VA and has an OM-D E-M1. No mention of lenses, so that must make it pretty difficult for him

I got a PM from him wanting to trade a Zeiss 135/2 to me for my Nikon 85/1.4, Sony RX100, and $600.

Asked him for photos of the Zeiss with my username written on a paper next to it. If he's serious, he'll send me his Zeiss first.

Only way I'd do it

Now that you guys mentioned making someone with no feedback send the item first, how many feedbacks does one has to have until someone with more than a couple hundred feedbacks agrees to cross ship? I only have done local deals and only cross ship one item worth close to $4000, yet people still ask me to send the item first.

anthonysemone got it right:

Tell him you LOVE gifts --- and so he's invited to participate in

Gear Gift!

He ships the gear to you --- if it checks out, you'll send HIM a gift.

Promise!

Hopefully no one will be tricked by this guy.
Anyway, here is his PM which was supposed to convince me to send him the funds as a gift.

"Hi, could you send it as personal payment so it won't get to my pending balance? Just include your address on the note. I'll just pm you here the tracking. Thanks!"

He read my requests for photos of his Zeiss 135/2 with my name on a paper and didn't respond.

Figured.
