I was selling an item on Gumtree and recently recieved a email off this woman who calls herself Lola Alice, thought everything was ok, until she wanted me to post the item to Nigeria, supposbly for her SON! she explained it was his birthday and hes over there on a training course,and she didnt have time to post, which i began to think it was quite strange! This fake Lola Alice was trying to reassure me that the £315 will be sent to my paypal account, so i then give paypal a call, explaining my problem, but soon as i mentioned Nigeria the man from paypal customer service interupted me and told me not to go through with the transaction as there are to many scams from there.
Dont let them scam you, they tell you they will transfer money in to your paypal account or bank transfer and send you a fake email that you recieved your funds showing as paypal with paypals logo.
BEWARE DONT TRUST THESE SCAMS NEVER SHIP TO NIGERIA OR SIMILAR PLACES UNLESS YOU KNOW WHO THEY ARE!!
The Name & Address she give me to post to......
