Nigerians, scums of the universe... err... eBay.

Captain's Log Stardate -318511.38

Last August 2004 pa ako nagregister sa eBay Philippines pero ngayon lang ako naka encounter ng mga pesteng taga Nigeria. Noong nagsign up ako sa eBay USA, mga 2001 yata, aware nako sa mga Nigerian scammers na nagkalat. Buti na lang hindi ako bumibili noon kasi wala akong pambili. HAHAHAhA!

Last week, nagpost ako ng brand new na laptop sa eBay. Malinaw sa item description ko na shipping only in the Philippines pero may mokong pa din na nag "buy now". Bagong register lang syang user and location nya ay United Kingdom. Sige, message ko sya na kung nasa Philippines sya ay ishiship ko na yung laptop, provided na magbayad muna sya, as stated sa terms ng auction ko. Eto ang reply nya :

I make a buy it now for your item which you place at ebay and i will want to pay for the item via either bank transfer or through western union and i also have a paypal account of my company which i could also use for the payment.Please get back to me with the total cost of the item plus the shipping cost via either fedex,dhl or ups to Nigeria and also your full contact or bank account details for the transfer of the money for quick transaction.
This is the shipping address once again.....
Nmae-Ola Olakanmi
Address-20 Dada street Ifako
I will want you to get back to me as soon as possible for quick transaction.Thanks

Hindi ko na pinatulan tong mokong na to at sinabi ko na lang na hindi ako nagshiship ng products internationally. Kung nasa United Kingdom sya, bat yung IP address nya ay pag sinearch natin yan, NIGERA ang location. n00b.

Wala na akong natanggap na emails galing sa kanya simula nun. So nagpost na naman ako ng laptop, this time 2nd hand naman. Malinaw na sa terms ko na kapag ZERO feedback yung magbibid, contact nya muna ako to verify kung seryoso sya. Tatlo ang nagbid na ZERO feedback at inemail ko silang lahat. Sinabi ko na icacancel ko ang bids nila kung hindi sila magrereply.

May isang nagreply. Eto ang email nya sa akin:

Kung gusto nila ng gaguhan, sige bibigyan ko sila. This time pinatulan ko. Akala nya wala akong paypal? Cge. Binigay ko ngayon yung email address ko sa paypal then kinalculate ko yung shipping ng laptop via UPS papuntang Nigera. Nagsend ako ng email sa kanya:

Havent you read my terms? I SAID, THE PRODUCT IS ONLY AVAILABLE IN THE PHILIPPINES! But if you insist, ok fine, Pay me the following amount on my PayPal account:

Laptop = $373 USD
Shipping = $448.38 USD

UPS Shipping Details:

Total Shipment Weight: 4 kg

Number of Packages: 1
Packaging: UPS Express Box
Declared Value: 328.00 USD
Customs Value: 18,000.00 PHP
Duty Type: 02 - Non-dutiable
Currency: USD

Send the payments now at my PayPal account so I could begin shipping your laptop. My email id for PayPal is [snipped]

Send the payments ASAP!

Ilang hours lang, may natanggap akong email galing kuno sa PayPal. Approved na daw yung transactions namin and ek ek. Kinunan ko na lang ng screencap yung buong email and naglagay na din ako ng checklist para sa pagspot ng mga fake transactions. Click nyo na lang yung link below.

Pagkatapos nyan ay pinadalan ko sya ng email:

I havent received any amount in my paypal. All I receive was a crappy english low grade trying hard copy cat email from you. Please send the payments now to my paypal or I will be forced to report you to the FBI and other proper authorities.

Hello what do you mean i have made the payment i did not send you any mail why have you not ship the laptop....Rita

Kakacheck ko lang kanina, hindi na sya registered user sa eBay. HAHAHAhA! Padalan ko kaya ng sulat tapos yung letter sa loob may konting pulbos. Alam nyo na siguro binabalak ko. *evil laugh* Tapos laman lang ng letter ay, "You're Dead!" o kaya'y "Game Over" -- as suggested by Kuya Paulo

ganun pala yun. I wasn't aware they had that kind of reputation. Pero bro, may ilang pinoy din na naka-sira sa reputasyon natin. 'Di ba once-upon-a-time ayaw tanggapin ng PayPal (at iba pang websites) ang registrants from the Philippines?

sige, kapatid, ingat diyan sa ebay ha. One time soon, i'll try out ebay. Bili ako sa iyo ng ... lastiko. ;-)
