the reason that it's a scammers preferred method is that it's not reversable.
that's why the scammers tell you that they want you to buy something from them, send money by wu.
then you send th money, they never send the item, and you can't get your money back rohan gets the money, (and it can't be taken away from him via some kind of charge back or anything like that).
then he posts the xbox to wherever the seller asks.
and adding $200
assuming that he wants this shiping to Africa it's quite heavy, especially if he's buying the acessories as well, so it's going to cost a reasonable amount to post. so $200 to include shipping, and a few extra dollars because you've had to go out of your way isn't so bad.
in this case, if he says yes, pay me by wu
they send the money,
-probably still a scam though!
