Its a SCAMMER nothing more nothing less OK!

All this 'it could be genuine' b*ll*cks its going to Lagos Nigeria FFS. I can now see why they catch 'some' people out if you believe for a moment that this could be genuine.

A friend of mine got caught in a similar scam after advertising his bike for sale in a local newspaper. They very generously offered to pay loads of money into his bank account!

Yes, it's a scam, but you haven't really been 'hit' by it. You recognised it for what it was, took appropriate action, and have simply been a bit inconvenienced. Life goes on. It's not worth thinking about giving up on ebay selling for!
