SO I almost got ripped off $520!!!!!!!
    #3508107 - 12/16/04 11:48 AM (12 years, 8 months ago)

You know how I was asking about bidpay legitimacy the other day? Holy shit I almost got ripped off. I really almost sent the package worth $520 to Nigeria today!  I just didn't feel right about it and called bidpay though and it turned out the verification number appearing to come from bidpay in an email was totally fake.  I was almost a sucker! :lol:

Shit. I do feel totally paranoid now though.  Some Nigerian gangsters have my address! :shiftyeyes:

I know. I've been ripped off a few times with eBay. That one was close. I'm SO glad I called bidpay! :smile:

I think it's traditionally been such a corrupt country that it's become a way of life. They've probably scammed each other so much that they're having to look further afield..

is there an import tax they'll have to pay? if so make sure to put the $520 value on the customs report.

and if you can make shipping cost them more by including weights put that in too.

And some poo! Preferrably from a friend's 18-month old, 'cause you KNOW that's some rank shit.
