Linda Sabuba gumtree scam  
 Scammer
  Information
Name:
   Linda Sabuna
Email Address:
   lindasabuba611@gmail.com
I had a dress on eBay worth $500 which "Linda" responded to via text message at 8:17am saying, " Hello,is your Dress still available for sale?advice on your firm price with present condition via my private email address (lindasabuba611@gmail.com )"
There was no number, it just came up with her name.
Thinking it was a real potential buyer, I begin emailing the email address. After a couple of emails and after giving her my bank details, she then said she'd transferred me money via PayPal that she wanted me to then pay into a different account. When it said she was to pay $450 for a courier I realised it was a scam and called them out on it. No emails since.
