Diferent, usually they offer to send you a cheque straight out for alot more than it is worth to cover shipping costs etc then you send them back the change. (eg product 20k shipping 5k, they send you 30k and you send them 5k) except of course their cheque bounces and your payment of change has already been cashed. This one says he wont send his delivery men until the transaction is complete (I assume it means payment clear)
STILL............. wouldnt touch it, these guys are profesional scammers and who knows what it is they are trying to achieve

Hi Chris,

We actually have the following warning about spammers on the trader home page:

Scam Alert
It has come to our attention that there are a number of scammers trying to use the trader system. Please be aware that we are doing all we can to stop this however be very careful in your dealings with people using free email accounts (such as hotmail and yahoo). You will also be able to identify these scammers as when you come to closing the sale they will advise that they want your personal details and/or will want to send payments via cheque for more than the sale amount, they will request that you write a cheque for the difference and give to them or a shiping company. DO NOT TAKE THESE DEALS instead please forward the email to info@exploroz.com and we will ban the account.

I have already banned this account as someone has forwarded us the email with the scam.

Regards,
Juliana
