Scammer Information Details of Scam Report
I listed a car for sale privately on Gumtree, then got a text from a 'Matt Peters' asking me to email details to firstname.lastname@example.org which I did. He responded with this email below:
Hi mate,thanks for the reply.I am okay with the price.I have read the AD and it's okay by me.My work does not permit me to come for the inspection (very busy and currently out of town).Would have loved to call but our base right now is bad so we can get along via e-mail.I will be paying you via the fastest and secure way to pay online (PayPal),please get back to me with your PayPal Name and E-mail ID so i can proceed with the payment immediately and if you don't have one it's very easy to set up visit (www.paypal.com.au).
Put the listing off the AD site and consider me as your favourite buyer.
Note:Please provide your address in your reply so that my shipping agent can locate you when coming for the pick up.
NOTE: I did not enter into this as he can get a refund through Paypal. This is a SCAM email - everyone beware.
