I posted an ad on gumtree regarding selling a car.
Scammer contacted me saying he wanted to buy for his son who has graduated. Scammer was working offshore and didnt have access to his credit cards/phone but wanted to pay through bank deposit/paypal.
Googled NZOG and seen scammers page.
With exact same stories but using different names.

This person contacted me on Car Daddy.com. Offering to pay full price of my vehicle as listed and additional $100 to take the ad off. This message is what made me weary and led me to this website. Thank you all for sharing your story because it has prevented me from interacting with this person any further.
