I'm doing a deal with this guy on NT, but he doesnt have any refs. I wanted to use paypal but he asked me to use WU because he needed the money ASAP to paysomething very important. So what can i do throught WU if he is a scammer?

First of all, you're taking a risk doing a deal with a dude with no refs. Seriously, ZERO refs? NT, ISS, eBay, Craigslist, whatever? Yikes.

The fact that you're more worried about how to settle a PP dispute rather than actually receiving the shoes is telling.

If he's local, do a face to face. If he's not local, and you know/trust any NTers in the area, have them do the face to face.

Otherwise, ff you're really hell bent on doing this, have him set up a private auction on eBay with a BIN of $0.01 or whatever, buy it right away, and thenpay through PP. That way you have an eBay auction on record for a PP dispute if it really comes down to that.

If he can't do ANY of that, and he's still asking you to send money first...I'd back away. Just trouble waiting to happen.

Don't get OMWNed.

I say do it.


Youd be a nice guy to just give him money like that and get nothing in return.

DS carmines for $170? you sure those are real? sounds already like a scam.. and other than that.. when you use western union, there is no way you can get yourmoney back, plus the fact that you also pay money for that transaction, so it'll be the money you wanna send + a certain amount that western union asksfor.. i wouldnt do it.. cause he's just scared using paypal, cause if he scams you, you get your money back... with western union there nothing.. it'llalways be a losing situation for you.. so listen to everyone on this thread.. we're NT, we're smart!!

At least you got the chance to think it over and NT help you out. your one of the few. be proud. Kids get scammed and make a big deal about it ina thread and theirs nothing they can do to get their money back and everyone else is givin them the


That Ebay private auction sounds like a safe way to go.
