"I will have to included the shipper funds with the payment so that you will pay them once you receive the payment."Now, I am not selling something that can be shipped USPS Priority mail for $8. The paneling is a few 100 pounds of metal and 100 or more square feet. The buyer is going to have to contract with a long distance hauler and, most likely prepay, some or all of the price. I passed on the sale. The buyer never texted back with a counter offer or a simple goodbye. Part of me wanted to see what would happen next. My expectation was that I would soon have received an email from "PayPal" having me login and collect the payment.
I have no way of knowing if Mr Anthony was or was not a legitimate buyer. But there were many signals of fraud in our interaction. If I do discover that Mr Anthony was, indeed, just trying to buy a bunch of cheap fencing quickly, then I will apologize to him and remove this posting.
