So I currently have a 4x4 on eBay.

It's being bidded up by 2 people, both with no feedback and one joined a few days ago, the others in June. Now I don't know how I can tell if they are scam?

I've messaged both of them just introducing myself and stating that the reserve is close and I'd like to make contact as they have no feedback?

Don't know what to do or if I've done this right thing?

I suppose everyone has to start somewhere?

sounds like you have done the right thing by emailing them .
if they both or the winner at least turns out to be a messer , you can claim your listing fee`s ect back from ebay . in the mean time just let it run .

I think mailing them as you have done is a good idea. When I use eBay to sell something, I only allow payments through PayPal or eBay, that way you get an extra level of protection. NEVER PAY ANY MONEY TO ANYONE IF YOU ARE A SELLER!!! A friend of mine (who is normally very savvy about these kind of things) got scammed by a money transfer scheme when he was selling a car, they were very convincing! I wouldn't be to worried, they will have to come and pick up the 4x4 and if they don't pay up, they don't pick up... simples!

Good luck all the same

Cheers, John
