| Rose Lama. Scam Gumtree buyer. Fake payment. Fake Paypal payment confirmation email. Don't pay shipping fees on his/her behalf! Sends an initial text to enquire about Gumtree ad but will only communicate by email: firstname.lastname@example.org. If you try to text back, your reply will fail to send. Claims to be wheelchair bound therefore willing to buy without coming to check goods. Pretends to transfer money by sending a fake paypal payment confirmation email. Claims to have transfered the full price plus Â£295 on top for shipping and handling and another Â£40 Moneygram fee. However, you can't access this 'bogus' payment for "security reasons" until you send money in person at a Moneygram shop Â£295 + Â£40 out of your own pocket as she is wheelchair bound, to the shipping courrier (which is the scammer in disguise!) at a French address. so she pockets your money and all you get is a bogus Paypal payment confirmation email!!! your actual Paypal account will not actually have had any money transfered to it. |
