Details of Scam Report
Another report for Annie Snells.
I was selling a wedding dress on Gumtree and was contacted immediately by this person first through text message, then emails, who said they wanted to purchase the dress but "work offshore in New Zealand Taranaki Basin on kapo project." They said they were keen to purchase but as they work remotely they needed me to help them pay $500 for the courier & freight costs (?) which I could do at my local post office. They then said they had transferred the money through paypal but paypal were withholding it as the sum was so large (??) so I would need to pay the $500 first before Paypal would release the funds into my account. Annie told me that I would receive an email from Paypal to confirm this which might end up in my junk folder so I should check there. Yeah right! The representatives of Paypal state that this is a fraud. Paypal do not withold funds, and their emails would never go to the junk folder. Consider yourself warned!

I believe that since payment has been made, the advert should be taken off the site and please do let me know the location\'s address including your free date and time so that i can give it to my mover to use it to register the date and time they will be coming for the pick up in your location. I will be waiting to read from you as soon as you get it done Cheers!
