| Donedeal.ie Ad Response from firstname.lastname@example.org, 82646 |
The next day, I receive a text message on my phone. I did put up my contact phone number on the ad for responses, this is normal and have never had any issues before.
The text message said is your item still available and what is your best price. You can contact me at email@example.com.
Now since the text came from 82646, and not a normal Irish phone number like the following
(PREFIX: 083,085,086,087,089)followed by 7 digits (XXXXXXX)I knew it was a scam so I googled it and this was the first result, confirming others have experienced this scam.
I did not pursue the email address supplied as others here have done, so I have not experienced further correspondences with this scam.
ADVISE: Ignore this number and email address. Do not pursue thinking it may be genuine.
Post a message to the site admin where you have your item for sale and get the person removed, blocked it possible.
