i would definetly tell her only cash or paypal only.  it very well could be a scam, and why you don’t want to accuse or assume it is a scam, you also want to protect yourself as well. if she’s unwilling to do it your way, then don’t sell it to her.

Your post is a little confusing. But if I get the gist, if she’s unwilling to do your methods of secure payment, don’t sell it to her. It seems odd and since you’re talking about an expensive purchase it’s better to be safe than sorry.

Agreed! sounds like a scam to me. If she really wanted your dress she would go out of her way to pay with paypal ro come pick it up in person. so much easier than mailing a check!

a common scam is to say:

my fi will write a check and i’ll send a mailing label and fedex to pick it up. my fi got confused about the vendors and wrote the check for the wrong amount. can you send me a check for the difference?

then their check doesn’t clear, but yours to them does.

this sounds like exactly what she’s doing.

Sounds kind of suspicious to me too. You’re right to insist cash or PayPal only.

@Simplicitydal: for future reference, if the grammar/english is terrible, she doesn’t ask for more pictures or descriptions of the dress, or won’t pay how you ask it’s probably a scam!
