Is this a scam??? HELP ME OUT~!!

I'm not sure,
but I'm selling my JEM on an auction site.
This guy sends me a e-mail asking if it was okay to send money through credit card. Is it possiable to be scamed through credit card, and him seems to have very poor english, well, woser then me. I once got a e-mail from another person asking if he could send money through credit card, and he said he was from Indonisa. If I remeber clearly there were some scams going on with ppl from that area just not a while ago. I do not know if this is the same guy, but they had different e-mails. I wanted to know if it was possiable to scamed through visa.

If it was from Indonesia you'd have known, but it's not? There are plenty of honest citizens around the world, and paying by credit card is far the easiest and cheapest way for them to pay. Unfortunately in most cases it's extremely difficult to determine if it's a good card or not. You can always have them fax a clear copy of the front and back of the card and their drivers license, I do on the extremely rare occations I've taken an international charge. Bottom line is you can expect 0 help from whoever actually runs the transaction for you if things don't go right.
