I have never heard of it. Seems like more and more of them pop up all the time though. Tell him to sign up for PayPal. It can't be that hard in Nigeria.

yeah that's why I'm a little hesitant. And I got an email that says the money order is on it's way so to go ahead and send the items. RIGHT. I think I'll wait til the money order is CASHED.

This Nigeria thing sounds most suspicious- there's alot of scams that seem to be coming from there. A look at the website itself tells me that it is VERY risky.

I've used bid pay, and a lot of sellers accept it. best bet is to ask e-bay.

He will try to send you a e-mail that looks official saying it is ok to send the item. if it involves nigeria or africa it is always a scam.
