I've seen others' and my own classifieds get targeted by potential buyers living outside of the US. It's especially suspicious when their accounts are made solely for the purpose of contacting the seller through PM.
Can someone help confirm the tell-tale signs of these scammers? Or confirm that they are in fact scammers? Am I being paranoid?
A potential buyer in Norway has contacted me, showing interest in purchasing my headphones and reimbursing the international shipping fee, which is not cheap. The fact that he is willing to pay close to what a new pair would cost for my used ones boggles me, but of course I don't know about the availability of these headphones in Norway and their cost. Maybe this is worth it for him.
He is also requesting that I send the shipment with a declared value below $160, "to avoid the 25% customs fee in Norway." He wants it to be sent by "a private person" as well, whatever that means.
Is there any way I can get scammed from this, and has anyone else had this experience before?
