Had the worst experience ever sold my phone on ebay..was happy someone wanted to buy the product so when the buyer goes they want the item sent to nigeria for her son whos studying in Nigeria! I happily agreed as they offered to pay 30.00 for postage so stupidly I agreed.. The scammer made fake email claiming they from paypal and that the payment is being processed so I need to ship the item before the money comes in my account. At the time I didn't realise and I should have contacted paypal directly instead of going ahead with the fake emails which looked genuine. There was no way of telling the difference.
Then when I realised I was being scammed I contacted royal but they said they can't do anything once you've posted it. Its out of their hands, which is so stupid!! they should be able to send the item back to you. When I realised the parcel was still in the country at Heathrow but nobody helped.I just contacted the police and action fraud and hoped for the best. But even they didn't help!! 2 months later they contacted me saying they wont be able to take the case on!!
THESE PEOPLE ARE GETTING AWAY WITH IT BECAUSE POLICE AND PEOPLE WHO ARE SUPPOSED TO HELP YOU ARENT HELPING!! WITH THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE YOU CAN EASILY TRACK DOWN THESE CRIMINALS.. IF THE POLICE HAD ASKED FOR THE EVIDENCE OF THE EMAILS. THROUGH THE IP ADDRESS AND LOCATION THE SCAMMER COULD HAVE BEEN CAUGHT!!
