    Can anyone help? I am selling my mh and have an interested buyer who is working offshore and wants to buy my mh through PayPal.

    On several eBay lots is says no overseas buyers or they were relisted because of overseas buyers.

    What is the scam and am I right in refusing to accept his offer to pay via PayPal?

    Many thanks

    Norman

    Sell a motorhome via paypal....no no no no no no!!!!

    You will loose a fortune in charges and the buyer can sell paypal a line that results in you having the money taken back after you have given the vehicle to the new owner.

    Take a £500 deposit by Paypal, the rest is to be paid into your account by CHAPS transfer or in cash (take the cash to the bank with the buyer and pay it into the account whilst they are present, the bank will check for forgeries if they know its coming!!) on the day he collects it.

    Do not, I repeat, NOT hand over the vehicle until the funds are CLEARED in your account and all cash has been checked by the bank.

    As above...never take the full price through paypal,it will cost YOU dearly.
    As regarding selling offshore or buying offshore, no problem as long as you take a deposit within 2 hours of sale end then cash on collection. Have both bought and sold outside the UK without one hitch.
