Ask for a photo first of the two programmes together with a date on a piece of paper sitting on top...use paypal but NOT as friend/family and maybe suggest adding another pound on top to cover his fees

Suggest you have a video call via WhatsApp - fraudsters love to hide behind their keyboard

Suggest he lists them as "buy it now" on eBay, that way you benefit from eBay protection and pay for the right level of postage

I've seen your posts on the Facebook group "Football Programme WANTS LISTS" - was it via there he came to you? I picked up the last West Ham I needed back to 1942 via that group (and a 1923 home as well) so sometimes things do work out OK!

Normal PayPal is your best bet... not Friends and Family. You pay a modest fee which is essentially insurance. If it doesn't turn up you're not out of pocket

Ask him for another obscure programme or even make a fixture up, if they say yes they have it........... there is your answer

It's not someone called Andrew Ashmore is it? A friend recently lost some money to him after being contacted on Facebook.
