| Major Gumtree Scammer |
Anyways after responding to her message via email this was my response "Thanks for the reply, Actually i am buying it for my cousin as a surprise graduation gift and i will be responsible for the shipping charges via AUSPOST EMS to her address so that would not be a problem atall which means i will pay $100 AUD for the delivery charges. Let me know your final asking price of it and we can go from there and more importantly,I will like to pay you with paypal because its very easy, fast and secure to transfer money.. and if you don't have an account with PayPal you can easily set up an one by visiting www.paypal.com.au make any error on the Payment and to make everything okay with the both parties."
I thought this was even stranger considering there was no way postage in Australia for something so small would cost anywhere near $100 so I attempted to call her (the number she texted me from was 34262) but to no avail so I Googled her details and came across this website amongst others. Emailed her back calling her out on her scam and haven't heard anything since. Just glad I checked before losing such a large amount of money.
