Classified Ads Scam
| Found the name of where to send the money on your website. For Sale Classified Ad ScamI had an add on gumtree for a trailer and the people answering the add texted and said that he was interested but it was best to contact through email as he working in mining. He wanted to buy the trailer and have it shipped to Darwin. He also said he could only do through paypal to an account. I did not have a paypal account to use. He also had problems with freight and the company wanted the money up front and he could not do it as it had to be done through western union. (Alarm bells) I sent an email saying we would deliver the trailer to the local freight company. He ignored that and said that the money was being held by paypal along with the money for the freight and could I send $950 to Shuojia Zhang in Beijing China. I received a bogas email from paypal saying the money was on hold until they had a receipt for the freight payment. On searching the internet I found scamdex and this saved me from this scam as the address in China was on their list. I also contacted paypal to confirm that it was not from them and that it was a scam. It pays to check |
