Is it secure for a WTB Trade to Use the Western Union Payment?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

Sorry for my ignorance.

 

i don't know where to Post this Thread. 

 

I have posted a WTB thread and a guy from the UK maild me.

 

He don't have PayPal account. 

 

he required me to use the Western Union as payment.

 

As he receive the funds he will ship the gear.

 

Is this secure enough as Paypal ?

 

Can i get my money back if the guy don't ship gear i want?

 

thanks.

 

 

 

Which kind of payment do you usually use  when you are buying or sell some used gears?

WU payment is the same as cash. 

The request to send payments WU is a reliable tip-off that the deal is a scam.

You may as well send your money to me, and hope the gear arrives to you anyway ;-)

Don't do it!

Thanks for your help

It's said that the WU don't provide the escrow service as Paypal and most payment via WU are fraud.

Posting WTB ads is an open invitation to scammers, especially if you don't live in the same country.
