Details of Scam Report
|Name||Matt Peters ⇒|
|Email Addressfirstname.lastname@example.org ⇒|
I placed an ad on Trading Post to sell my car then I received the following text message on my phone:
"Hi, am interested in your car. Pls confirm price & availability to my email address: email@example.com. pls no sms bcos I wont b able to read it. Matt"
The source of the message is Matt instead of a phone number. The nature of the message and lack of phone number made me suspicious so I googled his details. It turns out that some people who have advertised their car have been contacted by him where he tried to extract personal details and paypal account details from them.
paypal won contact account sell firstname.lastname@example.org
