Cool Beware of buyers claiming to be local

Beware of buyers claiming to be local!
Recently received a pm, asking if i'm still selling my merchandise, since its been posted for a while now..
Bluntly told him off and never received a serious reply back..
Just by looking at the email, tells me something fishy!! Just err on the side of caution and don't be fooled by these losers ...scammers !

If I inquired about a vehicle and the seller told me off, I doubt I'd continue the contact either.

So it turns out he wasn't local? What does that have to do with it?

And if anyone ever asks about your "merchandise" , it's most definitely a scammer. It's the internet people, we should know this by now.

Maybe list those with a caption saying "shipping within a 2km radius only" lol

Your reasoning is a bit weird mate.... if you don't mind me sayin'

Please fill in the missing pieces; you're not much of a storyteller!

A guy ask if his stuff is still for sale, whether he is willing to ship-out using mail, the seller tells him off, conclude he is a criminal, and advertise his paranoia online.

That is a story on its own if you ask me (beginning-to-conclusion)
