So I received a Call Today from London Number, he said he got my number from Pakgamers and wants to buy the product which I listed for sale at PG, I said why don't you buy from Amazon, he said its not available. I cross-checked and the product is old and is not available at Amazon UK/US, His address and Phone is also valid and I verified it from my source. By the voice, he looked like a Native speaker. He is willing to send payment through PayPal or Bank Account.

Does this sound safe? I don't want to get into trouble for 5k. I am thinking about sending the parcel through FedEx if he pays first. Its a 5 port Mobile Charger.

Thoughts?

It's a scam. Just block the number and move on.

These things are happening a lot on OLX where people get messages from foreign numbers asking them to ship the product after sending them a fake bank deposit slip.

Seems like these scammers have discovered PG now as well.

There are hundreds of 5-port phone chargers available abroad, there is no way he wants one from Pakistan.

Guess What? After some email exchange, She straight away transferred the Money (Product+Courier) to my GBP UK Bank Account in Advance o_O How do i process from here? I was thinking about sending the product to London through Fedex. Is it feasible? Any other reliable courier options which can be tracked? Courier budget is $20, Product is less than half KG.

So she ain't scam? Weird. Hope she is not able to reverse her transaction by any means after getting what you send to her.

I hope he/she difference in your statements is just a typo.

Anyway, contact your bank and verify the transaction before shipping.
My Mistake,the original person called me is Mr Cz**** & the lady communicating on email is Mrs J*** Cz****. I already confirmed with my Bank, Money is in the account already :D I will make sure to transfer the amount in PK Account before shipping the product so she can't chargeback at any point.

Thanks, i will go there today.

Will update the status in a while.

    Also, avoid ordering from unknown places. Too many restaurants are not following basic hygiene standards. Some of them regularly get sealed due to that. So be careful.

    Restaurant's own delivery is usually the best option. Only if it's not available, should you consider these external delivery services.
