I just got a text off 82646, enquiring about an item I was selling, so my alarm bells were automatically raised. They wanted me to contact them @ firstname.lastname@example.org, which I did. He was happy with the price, but then wanted me to send it to Nigeria. I said that I wouldn't be happy shipping anything that far and got no reply back. I then searched the number and e-mail online and my suspicions were confirmed. HOAX, DO NOT TRUST!!!!!

Got a text from this guy asking if my bag was still available, asked him which one as selling 2 on adverts.ie, sent him on the link to the sight and got 2 seperate emails back one for each link saying the same thing- no problem with the price he will take it and wanted it sent by registered post so he would calculate the postage and pay me by PayPal and asked for me to send a request for the money. I wasn't going to sell them to him as was suspicious from the start when I saw the number but said if play along, so I suggested I'd send them by fastway and he replied saying no he'd prefer registered post and asked for my PayPal details and gave me this as the shipping address: Name:Oluwaseun Tunde. Address:# 50 Lafenwa Street City:Abeokuta State:Ogun Country:Nigeria I replied and said no sorry I could only sell within Ireland and got no response.

Got a text message from 82646 asking if my phone was still available for sale and what's my best price. I replied and very shortly afterwards had a reply asking for a PayPal request to be sent to his email address but no delivery address was given so postage could not be calculated. Judging by his written English he/she is not a native English speaker. On all accounts seems to be a bit of a dumb ass.
My add was on donedeal.ie for less than 24 hours
