So I'm selling a brand new laptop on eBay, starting bid in $500-ish, buy it now at $1k (was intending to drop that tbh). Some random guy from America contacted me about how much to buy it now. I reminded him that there was a buy it now price but he could make an offer, he offered $1k+shipping and to continue talks over email so he could get more info.
So this just seems suss. What protections would I have from a PayPal chargeback or any similar scams?
Edit: ok so as I thought this would be a bad idea.
The same concerns would exist for Australian buyers though, no? Should I list as pick up only, because I doubt I'd have many buyers in Wollongong..
