    Some of these sound like well-known scams.

    Only accept *cash* for it!

    Most of the scams work by offering to pay over the odds with a 'company cheque', and some time later the cheque bounces and you lose the money.

    Harry is spot on - but same goes on eBay. This 'Nigeria' scam is rife at the mo.

    My BF tried selling his i300 a few weeks ago. It was finished with 'Buy It Now' but he was sent an email with a rather suspicious looking payment confirmation page from Paypal. Needless to say; fake. So if you try selling on other media like eBay, start using the 'buyer requirements' stipulation you can attach to your auctions.
