I have sold a lot of camera gear on fb without trouble but you have to be carefull. I always ask for a phone number in their reply, if not no reply from me. Still the stupid spammers collecting email addresses will ask if I still have it. Of course there are the scammers thinking I'm stupid enough to send it to their sister in Nigeria.

I received an email from a woman who claimed to be a Nurse. She said she was buying the camera for her husband's Birthday and she was going to pay by check. She also asked me to buy a Birthday card and insert it in the box along with the camera. Finally, she wanted me to ship the package 2nd day air to Nigeria. I'm still ROTFLMAO.

You mean she did not offer you an extra $100 for the shipping ? That is what fools the greedy sellers and the scammers know it.

Is it the camera, the lens, or your lack of skill that is causing you to...

Yes, you're right. She did offer to pay the air freight charges.
