Details of Scam Report
|Name||Tyler Connore ⇒|
|Email Addressemail@example.com ⇒|
Contacted me saying he was interested in my item on gumtree. I asked him which one, as I currently have a few listed. He couldn't identity which item he was interested in but stated he wanted 'both' (one is a $4,000 car so that is really strange) & immediately rushed into asking for my account no. and wanted to make an immediate payment. He then demanded I supply the condition of the items and their prices. I referred him to the respective advertisements where this is clearly and explicitly displayed. This was really suspicious so I googled his name which came up as Tyler Connore or Ronald Tyler Connor as a scam.
Here's an exert of one of his emails to me.
