I listed a set of custom number plates for sale on a couple of websites and someone emailed me excepting the asking price straight away, and claims he is an oceanist and  he is at sea right now, and he keeps insisting on paying using paypal, which is fair enough, but he keeps insisting on payments not even caring about what i have to say and refuses to give his name and address, saying a pick up agent will come and collect them, which looks abit strange, because someone needs to sign paperwork etc.

I asked him to call or the agent to call and asked for his name 2 times and he keeps ignoring it. Any advice?

whether it's safe or not, i try and avoid transactions with people who are difficult to communicate with, just too much work for the seller to get it over and done with.

+1. If he is avoiding any questions at all, give it a miss mate. Not worth the potential headf#@ks.

Yeah... I don't think the safety of Paypal is your biggest issue here.

That's what I thought an "Oceanist" was as well, but on doing a Google look most of the results seem to be about scams where the Dude is an "Oceanist". Still haven't found a clear answer???   :confused:
