We had a car for sale on the local Gumtree website and received the below reply:
Hi thanks for reply, i am a marine engineer, i am at sea right now. I
am buying this for my son as a surprise gift. I can only pay through
paypal at the moment as i don't have access to my bank account online(i
dont have internet banking with it), but i have it attached to my
paypal account, and this is why i insisted on using paypal to pay,all
i will need is your paypal email address to make the payment, and if
you dont have a paypal account yet, you can set one it cant take you
less than 3mins to do that, i will be expecting your paypal email so l
can pay. I have a pick up agent that will come for the pick up after
payment has been sorted, l will be waiting for your reply asap..
I replied and said I only deal strictly COD and asked if his 'agent was able to pay on collection of the vehicle. He then repplied:
The agent company dont accept any form of payment to
be paid on the pick up point for their security purpose.
All he's coming there for is to do the checking, and delivery. The
only easier way for me to pay in the money is through PayPal and you
will get the funds in your account before my agent come there for the Pick Up.
I can make a direct deposit with my PayPal to your Bank account and
all i will need is your Account number, full name and the bsb.
After my gutt instinct I declined the offer and ended the transaction. Please be careful and do not enter into dealings with this person.
