Details of Scam Report
I listed furniture items on my TradingPost Australia and received a text at 5am this morning from Rosie O'Brien saying they were interested in a dining table and would I let them know if it were available etc. We then proceeded to email and they wanted to go ahead. I sent my BSB/Acc details, home address for pickup and they also have my email and name. As we proceeded with the conversation they then transferred the agreed amount to my PayPal acc but asked if I would pay the courier directly to a Chinese merchant to the cost of $700. As I had asked to have the money be direct deposited to my bank account I was suspicious that they had gone through Paypal. This is when I realised things were fishy. The PayPal receipt I received showing the money was in escrow looked unfamiliar and there was no corresponding transaction of any sort in my actual PP account.
Suffice to say I dodged a bullet. But clearly this is an ongoing scam and others beware. I have reported the creep to ACCC in Australia. Below is the email with all the same bull-crap as others before me have received. Very disappointing.
