Cross, Western Isles, United Kingdom
| Scam on Gum tree, Paypal, MoneyGram |
I had this same experience twice with Gumtree. The Scenario was identical on both occasions and is identical to the one described here: www.actionfraud.police.uk/news/alert-online-scam-involving-gumtree-paypal-and-western-union-oct14
Scammer sent a text from 4868733
Scammerâ€™s name: Rane Benjamen
Scammerâ€™s Email: email@example.com
Scammer asked to send MoneyGram payment to:
First name: Angel
Last name: OZABOR DOROTHY
Address: 11 rotana road Sharjah 00971.
Country: United Arab Emirates (UAE)
Received fake Paypal email from: firstname.lastname@example.org
Scammer gave this fake Paypal email if I needed to contact Paypal for confirmation: paypaIservice@mail2helpdesk.com
In this sort of scam, the scammer is always very interested, in a hurry, unable to come himself, ready to pay the full price or even more without bargaining. he does not communicate through Gumtree or Ebay messaging systems. The person to pay is always somewhere far like United Arab Emirate or Nigeria.
