Buying kayak

Post by Mini2 » Tue Feb 05, 2019 9:25 am

Hi has anyone come across someone from Ireland, buying kayaks for his club ,
Got my kayak for sale ,
Had a call last night about 9pm took me by surprise
He offers to pay through paypal,
And he would arrange shipping ,
As I said it took me by surprise in the add I said pick up only ,
I've got no experience with selling stuff normally if I do someone comes to house pays and off they go ,
He told me he was buying kayaks from all over the country for his club
Thanks

Could be genuine, but I'd be watching for a scam. Since the buyer controls delivery, they can divert it to a different address and say they didn't receive the item. Paypal then refunds them (with your money). See here under "shipping scams".

I'd tell them you want cash on collection and see what happens...
