Scammers

Everyone knows the usual scams for people buying things from Africa. I got a really stupid one today though - I had two plastic chairs on gumtree to sell for £10 and got an email through saying someone wanted them. They turned out to be in Nigeria and the chairs (no pics) are "exactly what I want to furnish my office" - bear in mind these are very cheap plastic chairs. They said happy to pay shipping charges and now just want my bank details.........

Sounds legit to me. You supplied your bank details didn't you?.

Of Course, why wouldn't I trust someone from Nigeria who wanted to buy £10 plastic chairs and spend £100 shipping them over
