You'd think that someone that wants you to trust them would post their name right off? Sounds a little suspicious to me too. You might want to look into reporting the whole thing.
I got a weird message request on ebay the other day , looking for a second opinion if it may be a red flag or not ?
it seemed innocent enough , someone wrote saying they were interested in obtaining items related to my local areas history , such as books , postcards , maps etc . I have at times previously posted things for sale online and my ebay user name includes the name of my local area , so it may give off the impression I find a lot of stuff from here
but when I clicked on there user name it said they only had a feedback score of 1 , meaning they've never actually bought anything on ebay , they also claimed to be from the same area where I live but I've never heard of them before .
they also mentioned the possibility of an inperson meeting to trade or swap items which considering the major covid 19 outbreak at the moment seems like an unlikely scenario .
the whole thing seemed innocent enough but something about it did come across as off , and most of my local history items are part of my private collection and not for sale anyways unless I had duplicates which are few
