Got a text message of this person who was interested in my camera. Straight away she was keen to buy and price was no problem. The camera was a gift for her cousin. She said she would pay for the shipping en that she HAD to pay with PayPal. The fact it had to go fast fast made me feel a but unsure so i googled the Bitch. And yes, bingo! People WACHT OUT, don't just assume people are GOOD PEOPLE.

Found my add on gumtree and texted me asking about my item and then began emailing me happy to pay double of what I asked for which seemed very unusual. Apparently she was buying for her cousin who lives overseas. Was very adamant about receiving a tracking ID before sending the money through paypal. I sent off the item to her "cousin" Lisa S Wright in China (stupidly I didn't realise I was being scammed at this stage). Gave her the tracking ID and she said she sent the money. I then received an email from paypal (which was fake made up by her) saying she accidentally sent too much and I needed to send $300.00 to unlock this money which I hadn't even received yet. This is when i realised i was being scammed. "Diana" then emailed me saying the exact same as this fake paypal email did. I got onto AusPost immediately and had my item returned back to me before her "cousin" could receive it. I wish I saw this before I wasted my time with this person and almost lost my item. I hope this helps others into not being scammed. It makes me very angry that these type of people exist, absolutely cruel to naive people just trying to honestly sell some items online.

Saw my ad on gumtree. Just sent me email asking to post my item to her cousin. Offered to pay $100 postage - which is more than what the actual postage will be...

As also reported, initially sends message requesting overseas shipping as the item is a gift for a graduation. Continues to claim to deposit the agreed money via PayPal - does not - then constantly asks you to check your spam inbox, all the while telling you to ship that day (whilst they try to make you think PayPal is delaying something)
