Classified Ads Scam
| Car for sale Same as others already described. Responded to add on gumtree on mobile via email only because of where he was service was bad. Immediately was going to deposit money in PayPal or bank acc without looking at car and didn\'t even try to talk me down on price. But wanted it shipped up north to family for when he was off on holiday. Courier wouldn\'t pick up car until money transfer was paid upfront. Asked me to wire $1250.00 western union money transfer and he ad already deposited money for car plus extra money he wed me for money transfer to courier to PayPal account but PayPal were not to release money to me unless I gave details merchant no and personal imformation first. Then they sent emails impersonating PayPal insuring me that this person had deposited over $8000 into my PayPal account and I also got an email from the courier assuring me that it was all arranged and all they were waiting on was this money order. But I told them they were full of BS and to go F themselves and then they started threatening to report me to federal police and after that I get a eail from Hannah William asking if something was wrong and money was there and I told tem I had reported them to PayPal and all the authorities and I didn\'t hear from them again. UNTILL a week later because I have other ads in gumtree and they didn\'t realise it was me. This time it was email from a firstname.lastname@example.org which come up on same contact as hannahwilliam and I also got one from a nicksand01@gmail and when I searched these three Ames I was directed to this page SCAMDEX. It\'s obvious all three are same person or all work together. Put me off advertising anything for sale ever again. |
