My wife is trying to sell some garden furniture on facebook
Its been listed for £300. price low deliberately and shes been offer £350 for this by 2 people..
Now this is the bit thats bothering me, both are insisting they send £50. deposit bank transfer before picking it up, one keeps going on about his sick wife and not to trust anyone on facebook and about how far the drive it etc etc, the other said he would come this morning din`t turn up and said its because we did not send bank details for deposit payment.
I`m trying to figure out the scam here...
I`m thinking he sends £50. on bank transfer turns up claims he has no cash asks to send the rest on BT there and then but it turns out to be a hacked account
My other thought its an elaborate identity theft to gain access to her online account
I could be genuine but the eastern European sounding names and behaviour has me suspicious
