| Kelly Roland|
They sms\'d me saying \'What\'s the present condition and final price of you Gumtree listing, best way to contact me is via my email (firstname.lastname@example.org\'
I e-mailed them the condition and even came down $50 in price. They wrote back to me saying that they were happy with the price and that they needed my bank account details to send money through to. They also mentioned that they would set up freight.
I then sent them my account no. and BSB.
They then emailed saying that they were trying to sort out freight and to \'pls get the ad off the internet or mark it as sold as i am really keen about the purchase and payment.\'
I then received another email saying that freight to the Northern Territory would cost $950 which seemed absurd! They said something about me transferring money to their Western Union account.
It was at this point that I Googled the name Kelly Roland only to find a bunch of other complaints about scams on this website. Thanks :)
