Gumtree scam 
Email Address:
Country of Scam:
Australia (AU)
“Theresa” texted me almost immediately after I posted a furniture ad on gumtree. The text said “ Is the Furniture items on Gumtree still available for sale? kindly reply to ( plz no text.” I’ve had someone use text msg to try scam coming from gumtree before so my initial reply was “reply via gumtree ad”. Then I got suspicious and googled her email which led me to the thread here. No communication was ever sent through gumtree and the phone number automatically shows as “Theresa” with no access to the number the text message is sent from. Idiots.

Since you’re here …
we have a small favour to ask. More people are visting Scamdex and Scamalot than ever but advertising revenues are falling fast and we have no 'product' to sell. And unlike many informational websites, we haven’t put up a paywall or membership barrier – we want to keep our site as open as we can. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Scamdex/Scamalot websites takes a lot of time, money and hard work to keep running. We do this because we hate to see our fellow humans getting scammed out of their hard-earned money by low-lives.
