Classified Ads Scam - Paypal (paypal.com)
Contacted me via email in regards to an ad I had on gumtree asking me how what the lowest price I would take for the item. I had a number of items listed on gumtree so I replied with a complete list. They then replied with they wanted all the items which was a bit weird however they worked long hours etc and was not able to come and inspect the items. They said they woulda via paypal and have a private courier come and collect the items. They also supplied a bogus PayPal link. After a search of the email on google I discovered this scam via PayPal using a bogus link and a snapshot showing funds had been transferred or asking to transfer monies to western union for payment to the courier company, AVOID
