There are scams out there now using paypal. I use paypal almost daily but you still need to be careful even using paypal.

Don't fall for it, but be sure to play around with the scammer for a while to make it fun. Something like this...

I've also heard that paypal isn't that safe anymore.

I sent the guy a text saying I would only accept a postal money order or a western union transfer and he dissapeared. By the way everyone, here is his number in case you get something from him.....or just want to harass him 646-450-9152 have fun

Thanks for the link. I took a picture from my phone and sent it to him. I asked if he was still interested in buying my reel.........dick head. I put in the message that we're on to him and stop trying to prey on us
