I really don't think I'm gonna deal with this person, it just sounds way too fishy. Plus I don't even have a 'merchant account' and I doubt people from indonesia can sign up for paypal. Maybe if he sends me a check for a few thousand over the cost, I can send him cash back for the remainder of the check before it clears, hehe!! What do you think, legit or scam?

ANY deal where they want to over-pay you is just about 100% certainly a scam. They get your routing number off the documents and whamo... where did all that cash go?

Lots of this crap going around. The only people that get a check from me are utility and loan companies.

I would not do it. Do you have any idea what a hassle it is to ship overseas? Trust me. When I found out it cost $80.00 to send a book to England I quit doing ANY exporting. Not worth the time, IMHO.

Wait for a red-blooded (or blue, whatever) American to buy it.
