Beware of deals thru the Message system

A buyer doing a pretty good impression of an awe-shucks newbie wanted to buy my mount, but only communicated over the message system, despite my request that he email a response to my ad. He wanted to do a bank transfer where he would hand the phone to the clerk at the bank and I would give the female voice my account number and possibly my life savings. When I balked and tried to get him to go thru his claimed Praypal account, he in turn backed out of the deal. To date, I still do not know his email address or contact info, leaving open the possibility it is fraud.

Herb took care of the situation. His exact words:

"he can play elsewhere now"
