I was selling a PSP and this guy offered me $500 for it.
"It's my pleasure to contact you.I'm interested in your item(**************************)which you displayed on the eBay site and i will love to place my bid on these item but due to the nature of my job here in Australia could not permit me of bidding it my self.Wish i can do all this myself but due to my workload as a professional doctor here in State,i won't have the time to do all this due to the nature of my job. I want to get it for my daughter in Nigeria as a Congratulatory wedding gift for her up coming wedding engagement.however,kindly get back to me if it is still available in a good condition at([email protected])for more negotiations,so that I can send out the payment immediately via PayPal or Bank Transfer, because they are fast and reliable and secure with no stress of all payments. I am offering you AU $500.00 for this item plus the shipping and handling cost.Your urgent response will be highly appreciated.Thanks and God Bless"
The stars had the name of my item and i took it out just in case.
I ended the item early and he had bidded for it.
Im not sure what to do now. I guess im just waiting to see what happens. is there anything i can do to scam him as he is trying to scam me? or do something to waste his time?

Scam, scam, scam. Drop communication with him immediately.
(On a side note, don't ever end an eBay auction early - you won't get any protection at all if things go bad.)
And I'm sure someone will be along in a sec with more useful feedback for you. Also, welcome to the site!

i ended it early with him winning the bid so im guessing ebay will still protect me. But should i just re-list the item and ignore him?

Regardless of where you read it, it's a scam attempt if you read the following words: Urgently, Send payment immediately, Risk free, Contact my agent/secretary/assistant, Wire transfer, Utmost Confidential, and many others.
I won't make mention of any countries' names, but I really don't have to now do I?

It IS true that semi literate Australian doctors are specifically forbidden from using eBay but on balance I'd say scam too

I would block him from bidding on your items (eBay has a blocking feature), relist the item and tell him to bug off, nicely of course.
