Details of Scam Report
I was contacted by the e-mail address about the car i advertised on Gumtree (within an hour of it being posted, so they are obviously prowling the site). The name that they used this time was Denis Marcus. Same scenario - an oceanographer at sea so could only use Paypal and an agent to help with collection and paperwork - all costs covered by themselves. Offered full asking price and didn't even see the car. I don't think so. How can they keep getting away with this?!
