I put a fairly expensive watch up for sale on craigslist recently, and I just got an email from a buyer who seems very eager.
He’s asking if I would accept payment via paypal.
He also lives 2000 miles away, and is offering more money than I asked in the ad…both of which raise red flags in my head.
But if I don’t give him any personal info (other than my paypal account name/email), and money appears in my account…could anything go wrong?
I’ve never sold anything on craigslist to a buyer that wasn’t local and didn’t pay in cash.
