Need fast advice on Long Distance Craigslist Sale

Postby Braxton » Mon May 07, 2018 11:38 pm


I had my pin posted on Craigslist and have someone contact me from across the country who wants to buy it. That would normally raise some red flags for me (with the fake cashier check scams). He offered to do PayPal Friends and Family (which is nice) but that doesn't offer me any seller protection. So I told him I'd rather invoice and we can pay some fees. He said that's fine. He's going to have the pin picked up by STI.

The fact that he's OK with PayPal and is sending STI tells me this is legit.

I'm 100% safe by doing this via PayPal with an STI pickup, right? Just want to know if anyone sees a way I could get scammed on this. Starting to process the transaction now, so some quick advice would be appreciated.

I didn't find the right solution from the Internet.

I agree that universal payment apps like PayPal etc. don't give any assurance to sellers or even to buyers. I run an online store where I sell keycodes and to increase the trust of clients and to avoid scams; I use this DPD shopping cart. This shopping cart host is only applicable to digital products, but if you are looking to sell tangible products securely, then you can involve a third party like Shopify and Wix.
