| Gumtree Scammer David Green aka firstname.lastname@example.org Raved a txt asking about furniture I had for sale on Gumtree and asked me to email a response, not to reply to that mobile number, to email@example.com. I emailed back to ask what furniture item he was referring to and 4 mins later got the standard scam email but this time from firstname.lastname@example.org from a David Green about working offshore in NZ for NZOG on kapo project, can't phone because of offshore location which is bullshit, but he wanted to make an offer on it anyway without inspection, wanted it delivered before his holiday and will arrange payment and then arrange for their courier to collect it after payment. He asked for my PayPal or bank detail but because I recognised this type of scam including the offshore scenario from a few years ago, told whoever David Green is to get lost. I have no doubt that if I had fallen for this the payment would have fallen through but not before they had tried to scam money out of me for last minute courier issues!|
