  Information

Email Address:

Listed a car for sale on gumtree, scammer wanted to purchase vehicle without asking any questions or wanting to inspect. Contacted me via text and asked me not to call or text back but rather to email. I immediately became suspicious. After emailing, the scammer instructed me to remove my ad listing and he would transfer the funds via pay pal. This heightened my concerns and I googled his email address, which has previously been listed on scam sights
