    450 amazon voucher: scam? 22nd Aug 06 at 9:24 PM
    I've just seen a listing for 450 in amazon gift vouchers sent by email. Perhaps it's just me being over-cautious but I've heard of a lot of people buying high valued vouchers and them not working.

    Here's the link: http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/450-AMAZON-CO-UK-GIFT-VOUCHER_W0QQitemZ150025262587QQihZ005QQcategoryZ65 215QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem


    This one is being sold by an ebayer with 0 feedback. This always worries me when the item being sold is of potentially high value. They write under sellers instructions, "This is an email voucher. Paypal not accepted as payment method. You can pay on collection or if you have high feedback then i may accept payment after i email you the voucher"

    They supposedly want the buyer to take payment to them and meet face to face. This perhaps makes it less likely to be a scam but is it likely that someone will have 450 worth of genuine amazon gift vouchers?

    Currently the item has only been bid up to 30 - perhaps buyers are wary of this one. As it stands the winning bidder could get the bargain of the century if the item is genuine but if there's a rally at the last minute (it closes thursday at 2pm) the winner could find themselves out of pocket if it turns out to be a scam.
