At first she seemed very kind but as our emails went back and forth her replies became short. She also claimed she wanted to phone but her phone service was out due to bad weather conditions.
Upon a few other suspicious cues I decided to look her email up on this website and low and behold someone had received the identical message to me this time interested in a laptop.
Here is her message: "Thanks for the reply, I will like to buy it for my kid who is getting married very soon.I am interested and am okay with the price.i would have love to call in person but we have call restriction due to bad weather condition our satellite server has been down.i will be paying you through PayPal or transferring the money from my paypal wire bank transfer to your bank account,pls get back to me with your PayPal details or you can alternatively send your bsb account name and number if you have no PayPal account, so i can proceed with the payment into any of the two and I estimated the shipping cost via Australian post which is about $100 to ship it over to my kid in Beijing,China. I await your reply"
I'm extremely glad for someone else reporting this person and hopefully I can get in touch with gumtree to report this person
