I asked about about an item. He said he only accepts PayPal to
his fiancee's account at paskojes at msu.edu
Although that's not necessarily dubious on its own; my wife and I have a
joint bank account (same account, different cards) and paypal refuse to
link two separate paypal addresses to the same physical account - so I
don't have a paypal account these days and would have to use my wife's
paypal address for any transactions.
 well, they did as of a couple of years ago, anyway - I've not tried
again to see if they've changed the rules since. They weren't exactly the
easiest people to deal with.
I asked for his address and
phone number; he ignored me. He even refused my offer to send cash.
That does sound a bit fishy - if I'm selling something, I can't see a good
reason for withholding contact information.
