I have been trying to sell my dress on the classifieds on WB but I have only gotten one message and I am not sure if it is a scam or not. They said they just moved to Paris and would arrange a pickup and would only do bank certified check, any advice would be awesome!

Good rule of thumb…if you can’t meet the person in person…and they don’t have CASH to hand over…it’s most usually a scam and not worth the risk.
With that said, this sounds like a scam.

This definitely sounds like a scam to me, as well. Like KateByDesign said, if the person can’t meet face-to-face then it’s bogus.

Yeah, when they tell you that they “just moved to [insert foreign country],” and want to send you/wire you money/check/etc., it’s a scam. Bonus points if they want to send you MORE than the total so you can give them change.

Scam! I experienced something like this when i was trying to sell my car using paypal and I kept having weird feelings, so I contacted paypal and they told me don’t trust it. And if you can’t communicate with the person via telephone or in person don’t go with it.

I received the same email from a ruth825. I’m getting ready to email to tell them paypal or nothing. I bet I won’t get a response..

@bribar00: I sent an email saying I would only accept paypal and I haven’t heard from them again. Some things are just to good to be true.. Well good luck on selling your dress.

@bribar00: I forget how it works, but the “I’ve just moved abroad and will arrange a pickup” line is a known scam.

I work in law enforcement. Please don’t do it.
Another rule of thumb, if it’s to good to be true, it probably is.
