I was abvertising room for rent in Gumtree Singapore, and I got sms from her that willing to contact back with e-mail. So I e-mailed her with details and she told me she is 26 years old Chinese lady that works in cruise ship as a doctor, wants to pay 3 months rental fee immediate. She gave me her passport picture and suggest me to use paypal as she wants safety in doing payment. After some more mails later, she wants me to pay her shipping fee instead by pay me extra charges with paypal. And I got a mail from paypal service team telling she did payed, but the truth is "EVEN THE MAIL FROM PAYPAL WAS FAKE MAIL MADE BY HERSELF".
The REAL paypal service team e-mail address:
The FAKE paypal service team e-mail address: firstname.lastname@example.org
It was lucky that I googled at last, even I almost believed her.
Please beware of this scammer, I found she did this same thing to a room owner in Austrailia, then Singapore now? Nonsense...
I'll paste all the mails got from her, glad if these source can help others from the scammer.
