|+3 Attempted Scam On Gumtree |
He didn't want to inspect the goods before purchase.
He wanted me to remove the ad from Gumtree and offered me more money to do so.
Then said his couriers would pick the stuff up and asked for my bsb and account number or my paypal account.
I was suspicious and decided to look up his email and found this site. So thank-you for saving me from a scam guys! Much appreciated!

I received a text via gumtree withvthe below message. As soon as he used the word "merchandise" i was suspicious. I emailed him requesting he tell me which item for he was. He told me he was after lots of things for his dad who relocated and to send him a list. Having come close to being scammed before im so glad i googled his email address. (Unfortunately i added his email to my blocked list before copy/paste)
