| Buying a car scam|
I had my car listed on multiple car websites but Gumtree was the dodgy one!!!
This guy contacted me first via text and advised to contact him via email address: firstname.lastname@example.org
He said he wanted to by my car and he would pay the asking price. He also sends through what you might think would be a confirmation of paypal with this email address: \"email@example.comÂ®\"
We are hereby confirming to you once again that the total sum of $15,600.00 AUD will be credited into your account as soon as you provide us with the complete details of the western union money transfer used to send the additional fund of $1,500.00 AUD meant for the item pick up to the buyer\'s pick up agent. We also want you to know that your money has already been deducted from the buyer\'s account and it cannot be returned back to him which means that it is secure with us but has been put on hold and will not be credited into your account until we receive the necessary details from you. The western union money transfer information\'s needed are the MTCN and the sender\'s name and address used to send the money. This information\'s will be given to you by western union after the money transfer has been done. The western union transfer can be done by visiting a western union section at your post office.
