Wish had just kept 70-300mm now. Scammed by scum.

Had it listed on eBay, and guy asked if could collect.

Stupidly, I didn't say cash on collection or no deal.

Not long after collection, get notification of unauthorised transaction.

So I can probably kiss the value of the lens goodbye.

I'm normally a lot smarter about such things. Had already blown off what smelled like a scam earlier this week. Was just tired and distracted.

Informed police and action fraud, so hopefully will be able to get something from insurance, but not hopeful.

I hate that there are people like this. Worst part is I invited this scum into my home
