Classified Ads Scam
| Got in touch regarding a Gumtree listing |
Asked me to email him if my laptop was still for sale. At this point I hadn't realised the nature of the scam although I was feeling slightly uneasy. Emailed and he responded with the same email I have seen he sent to another reporter. Email said he was happy to pay for product but could not meet to pay as he is working at an oil rig in NZ. Instead he would transfer money via paypal and then would organise his courier to deliver.
At this point I realised that this was dodgy, looked his email up and saw a similar situation having been reported here. I have reported the email as spam and can't access it to post the contents.
