    If you got an email from someone to your personal email, that is not listed in your gear page ad, wanting to buy what you are selling but does private message you on the gear page would you be worried it is some sort of scam? Its my first time trying to sell stuff here so I would love some advice from sale pros

    I wouldn't be worried yet.

    Ask them for their gear page profile, references, phone number, etc.

    If you click on a person's "name" on the page, and look at their profile page, frequently their email address is there and you may have been contacted that way. In this economy for gear, maybe you should be glad you were contacted.

    Yea, just check them out here. Buyers aren't easy to come by these days so you don't want to let one get away, but you're right to check them out.

    Thanks guys. I am glad I was contacted, I just wanted opinions since there are so many "fishy" scams out there. Thanks.
