Donedeal Ireland phising scam
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   David Woolfe / and Thomas Lambe
Email Address:
   davwoolfe421@gmail.com
This person is running an auction scam on www.donedeal.ie site. Sending texts to the sellers phone stating that they are very pleased with the item that is for sale, ( in my case an upmarket smartphone). They then send you an email giving you an address, where to send this item. They also request your PayPal user name. Next another email arrives giving you postal details of where to send this item, nearly always somewhere in Nigeria, Africa. They add an extra €30 to the original price to cover postal charges. They even send you a pretty realistic PayPal statement showing the money pending order, which of course is fake. The same email states that once you have posted the item to the given address you must send them the postal tracking number for this item, then they will instruct PayPal to release the pending money to your account. SELLER BEWARE! THESE SCUM ARE SCAMMERS! The same SCUM are also using the name Thomas Lambe email address thomaslambes@outlook.com for the exact same scam.
