I placed an ad on friday-ad.co.uk (basicaly a free place to place adverts to sell stuff and the magazine/paper with the adverts on gets distributed around to area i live, but also gets placed on the internet on their site). The ad is for a drum kit with value of about £250. I hadnt heard from anything about it for a couple of weeks (and quite frankly didnt expect to) till a couple of days ago when a guy emailed me with this; to which i replied with; so i waited a couple of days for his reply and then this; Now can anyone make any sense of this? Why would he need to send me £3000 for a kit that costs £250? Im by no means aware of any methods of how i can be scammed here, i simply wait for the cheque to clear before sending the kit out, right? But then again i know little about how money going through banks works. Can anyone smell a rat here or do you reckon it all seems legit? Just thought i would ask you guys your advice before proceeding with this. cheers.
