| WALLIS NEVILLE KEITH - GUMTREE SCAM |
Within seconds of placing this ad, I received an SMS Message from a person asking if the items were still available and to email them at firstname.lastname@example.org
The party sent an email requesting my bank details and or a genuine PayPal account email address.
My best guess is this will be an OVERPAYMENT scam whereby the criminal pretends to wire funds to my account but wires MORE than the cost of the goods. He would then request I return the overpayment amount in full. If he acts quickly, it would be days before I would realise the wire transfer was false and the monies to my account were cancelled.
