Almost got scammed

Trying to buy tickets off PayPal from a guy that wanted $2500 for four tickets. He was going to send them to us through Paypal. We called PayPal and the guy didn't have a PayPal account. Beware. Don't buy if they seem like a scammer.

Since when does PayPal sell tickets?

They don't sell tickets but you can issue an invoice for an item you are selling and collect thru PayPal. Lots of folks sell items on Instagram that way... Show the picture, send invoice via PayPal. You do have some protection as you pay with a credit card, better than paying cash.

Also, you said in your OP that he was going to send through paypal, now you say he was going to send through ticketmaster?

I need a deposit of $5,000 to retrieve the $50,000 owed me from the estate. If you will send me the $5,000, I will make sure you get back twice that amount. Thanks in advance for having spent your money wisely to help me now in this worthwhile endeavor.

That is clearly misleading and fraudulent. People cast a bad light on legitimate people with legitimate problems like myself. I am a Nigerian Prince and I have $23,000,000 in bank account. However, do to a Nigerian technicality I must come up with $300 in order to receive my money.

If you send me the $300, then you will receive $5,000,000 in return.

Please forward to my attorneys Owa, Tafu, Iam, PLLC.

Thanking you in advance and God Bless You.


You make a great point here - I will drop by the bank later***
