    I think some guy is trying to scam me on e-bay...
    The story is I am selling a Boss Reverb Delay pedal and this guy from hong kong bids and wins it, then after exchanging emails to agree to pay shipping and pay through paypal, I don't get a response for a week. Then I email him agian then he says his paypal account is broken and he wants to pay through a friends account...

    It seems pretty fishy to me, and I want to get some feedback on what you guys think
     
  2. Don't send him anything.

    Sell it to someone less fishy sounding.

    that sucks, give him some more time (like a week) and if you don't get payment through paypal then relist it. Also, I would say no international buyers in your listing to avoid extra hassles. Good luck.

    The thing is I did say no international in my thing but being dumb I agreed to ship there... as for the paypal, I dont feel comfortable getting it from some "third party paypal user"
