Swappa.com Master Thread
« on: December 30, 2018, 11:21:20 AM »
I just sold an item worth $1295 and see that money in my paypal account. But after a quick google search of that address it comes up with multiple scams to that address, as it's a warehouse.
 It's a new buyer who created his account 1 and a half days ago, and wanted $60 express shipping overnight and then that funny address.
 On my part I received the funds and would ship it out. Anything to be concerned once paypal released the funds?
 Yes He can file a dispute and say he never received it or was Fraud, but now I have the funds, I would assume I'm backed by paypal and swappa? What's your guys take? 

Here's the info I received.

Ronda Nunez
460 Copper Drive, Apt 133503
Wilmington, DE 19804
United States

They all play around with the city, as there's 3 to use for that zip.

Now it seems swappa chimed into the conversation between me and the buyer. So doubt I would be able to ship and get away with it.

Reply from swappa staff;
   Ronda N., we are going to have to ask why the apartment number count is so high for a 1 story warehouse? I am going to insist that the seller not ship the device until this can be straighten out as well.

Thank you both.

 But in general I have buyers who are new,as they created there account hours or minutes ago, always sketchy to ship to such buyers, even though it received the funds.

Many times hackers buy things with hacked PayPal accounts... Hope the seller shops the item.. then skips town once he gets the item.
Meanwhile, a week later the seller gets a charge back once the real owner relizes the charge.
Then it becomes a massive headache for the seller

And he manages to add that address to this hacked paypal account?
 Surprised the billing and shipping don't have to be the same.
 Are there really that many brainless people out there who would follow links in there email to sign into paypal and thereby giving the hacker there info? 
 This would mean a buyer with a prior purchase or two would have some credibility assuming he not a fake as he has some positive purchases.

If you think you have to be brainless to fall for a phishing scam, you've probably been phished a dozen times

So you're implying it's the Jews who are doing the scans. LOL

Not at all. That towns has a very large amount of shipping stores/warehouses due to it being one of the closest tax free towns to NYC (and Lakewood ;) )

Heard back from the swappa team, that the specific warehouse address is used to ship internationally.(That explains the warehouse address a bit.)

the 133503 is likely to identify it to the warehouse as his.

Oh well, I could have made $250 of that deal. Gam Zu Litovah.
 Lesson learnt, ship without asking questions(Always with an exception) once you receive the money.
