There is another side to the "deal or no deal" inquiry in your Apr 09 edition of Popular Photography. I listed a Nikon D2X body and lens on e-bay for sale. I received notification from e-bay that the item was sold, an amount stated and a buyer's e-mail address given. I e-mailed the buyer (in Nigeria) that once notification was received that the amount was in my pay-pal account, the item would be shipped. I subsequently received an e-mail from the "Pay-Pal Team" that the amount had been deducted from the individual's account and once proof of shipment (a scanned photocopy of the ship documents) was received, the funds would be released.
