I posted a AD on gumtree. It came from a number +27810156145. He says 'i'm interested in buying your item listed on gumtree so send me the final price and address directly to my email johnmarkbluebottle@gmail.com Pls email only.' I got suspicious so i googled and came across this website. I only replied him and without sending my address to him. So lucky! Otherwise he could use my address and email to do something bad like paypal etc. Keep a lookout and beware guys. No transactions are too easy and smooth.

After enquiring about room and room rent . she replied
I am satisfied with the cost and am willing to pay for it via paypal to send me your paypal information for me to make the payment or go to www.paypal.com to create a free PayPal account if you do not have PayPal account already. Send me the total amount to pay now. (rent + deposit) Kind Regards, Bless.
Sounded pretty fishy , no1 finalises a home without viewing . msg is from a mobile no with country code of germany and woman claims to be in US. Googled about scams related to easyroommate and rentals found 1 similar scamster report and others sound pretty much same.
